Like last year, the meeting point is the Francisco A. Micheli Stadium, home of the Toros del Este, and starts at 6:00 a.m., leaving for Padre Abreu Avenue, going East to the Av. Eugenio Miches (former Santa Rosa st) where the Padre Sebastián Cavalotto Boulevard is, returning by the same route, taking into account that the 5km runners stop at the starting point, while the 10km runners must continue East-West direction, taking Avenida Francisco A. Caamaño to the south, to the intermediate point located near the railroad crossing, returning to finish the route at the point of departure.
