Route Description

This is the full loop from Sapinit Road near Pintong Bukawe-Casile Road junction. San Mateo, Rizal. Do not underestimate this route: gravel or dirt roads, fire trails, river crossings and single tracks. You’ll be going over Mt. Purro to reach Sitio Calawis and Sitio Apia, Antipolo, Rizal. Runners then have to cross two rivers to reach the remote village of Sitio Malasya, Barangay Puray, Montalban, Rizal. They will then run the trails to Sitio Wawa, Barangay Puray, Montalban, Rizal. Runners will then go up to Mt. Parawagan, running on trails following the contours of the Marikina River to reach Barangay Casile, finally going back to Sapinit Road in Brgy. Pintong Bukawe. These are trails used primarily by locals to travel from one barangay to their farmlands and neighboring areas.

Route Description

These trails change depending on the weather. When it is hot, expect loose soil, scree, and low-volume rivers. When it is rainy, expect slippery trails, mud, big-volume rivers, and more mud.

There is a good mix of wide fire roads, single tracks, foot paths, and ruts. Expect the trails to go either up or down, flats are not too common, but still they are runnable. Lots of flora and fauna are to be seen along the trails. Be sure to look out for that resident hawk!

No shortage of views here. Rizal may not be as grand as the places up North, but San Mateo, Rodriguez, and Antipolo provide some pretty good visuals. Considering that this is just an hour’s drive from the metro, what more can one ask for? Lastly, have you heard of “Palikpik Buwaya” and “Devil’s Down”? If not, I’m sure you won’t forget these. Not to mention “PG”, Parawagan, and Casile.
