Once you've reach the Calinawan Cave, I am pretty sure that most of you will stop by to this beautiful amazing God's Natures Creation and will take some photos, I advise to bring your headlamp along with you it is dark inside the cave. 

Calinawan Cave to give other runners a feedback got its name from the word "Linaw" a Tagalog term for Clear. This cave also served as a shelte and a hideaway from the Japanese during World War II. It was also in this cave that Japanese Soldiers surrendered to the Liberation Forces.  

You will get the chance to view this amazing cave by taking the Final Leg and only Phimco Sporting Event Organizers are the first to get this venue for the Trail Running.
