42km long – 1.2 km high – The real DAM
The route of the 42.195 meters of the full distance is more challenging than ever. This year’s Dumaguete Adventure Marathon brings you all the way up to the Filipino-Japanese-American Shrine, roughly 1,200 meters above sea level, so make sure you have some up-hill training to master this challenge of ascends around 40%. The course will also use some unpaved roads, loos gravel and mountain washouts. Good footwear is therefore absolute mandatory.
21km Half Marathon
The Half Marathon also has its challenges. Getting from Robinsons via Batinguel towards the mountain and back is an exciting experience and still requires good training.
10.5 km Quarter Marathon
Also towards Batinguel goes the 10.5 km Quarter Marathon. From Robinsons via Calindagan to the Rizal Boulevard the runners will take a sharp left turn and go straight up all the way to Upper Batinguel before turning around and run downhill back to Robinsons. On their way back they take a different route and pass the BIR towards Bagacay down to South Elementary School and the Highway before they finish the 10.5 km Quarter Marathon.
5 km Finisher’s Run and 3 km Kiddie run
