Cagayan de Oro city, barangay Macasandig, Aluba
 Misamis Oriental, Philippines

Sunday December 6 2009, 6 AM
Aluba road to Taguanao bridge = 5 km,
water at turning points after 2.5 km and 5 km.

starting location, road passing Aluba from Macasandig to Taguanao bridge

_This was the second of a series "out of City Runs".
A well organized run almost for free, didn't attract runners that much until now.
It needs more advertisement, even our own club members are in majority not joining.
It is also a matter of discipline to go to some place on an early hour.
Still, the president, vice president, secretary and friend + kids and the treasurer of the club were present to run on this fine day.
We were prepared for at least hundred people but,........ next time na lang.
It was a very positive club activity and good experience for the third run in January.

Few traffic and no polluted air, sooo......, excellent running conditions, what more can a running athlete wish!?
