Distances: 62, 85 km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

UCI Gravel Philippines is the first event on the UCI Gravel World Series calendar and is organized by the team who has organized UCI mountainbike marathon series events in the Philippines in the past.

The race in Bongabon, Nueva Ecija is organized on the northern Luzon island, one of the two major islands on the Philippines and located 200km northeast of the capital city of Manilla.

The race starts in the small village of Vega Grande, a few kilometres north of Bongabon.  The 85km is a mix of flat gravel roads along the river, forest roads and dirt roads.  The majority of the race is flat and fast.

The main difficulty of the days comes directly after the start with a climb starting after 5km going from 100m to 270m above sea level.  The climb is a bit more than 3kms with parts up to 13%.  After the downhill, the rest of the route is mainly flat with some paved sections on a major road and a passage through the village.

The last part makes another loop before finishing back in Vega Grande along the river.

The shorter 62km course makes a shortcut just it finishes at the same location as the 85km.
