Then we take the viaduct at Cinta Costera III, continuing towards Amador, and when we reach the Figali Convention Center we return again 180 degrees and go towards the old YMCA Building, and then the Banco Nacional at Balboa.
Afterwards we take the Ascanio Villalaz Avenue towards the Albrook airport, and then follow in a direction paralel to the Panama Canal crossing places such as Los Ríos, Cárdenas, Clayton, Miraflores, until we reach the entrance of the Maintenance Site for Pedro Miguel locks at the Panama Canal.
Then we return again towards Albrook, and we pass next to the DIJ Police Building, and then we go round and up the upper lane towards the Fish Market again, and from there towards Miramar Hotel until reaching the finish line.
