Traffic Advisory: Commonwealth, Elliptical Road, and Quezon Avenue
The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) advised motorists and commuters early Sunday morning that Commonwealth Avenue, Elliptical Road, and Quezon Avenue will be the running venues of the 4th Quezon City International Marathon (4QCIM).
In a tweet, the MMDA informed the public that these major QC roads will be used for the 4th QCIM, but race organizer Without Limits clarified in an interview with GMA News Online that not all lanes of Commonwealth Avenue will be closed to traffic.
"We're not gonna close the whole Commonwealth...We're gonna use four lanes lang--the ones (nearest) the concrete barriers on both sides of the Commonwealth," said Ian Alacar, race director of the 4th QCIM.
Alacar said the race route will extend westward to the Quezon Avenue underpass and eastward to the outer rim of the University of the Philippines Diliman campus and parts of the Balara area.
He said parts of the race routes will be rolling and hilly, including the paths inside the UP campus.
Alacar advised runners in the 4QCIM to hydrate well and load up on needed carbohydrates. — Earl Victor Rosero, GMA News
