Ironman in the Philippines

More Filipinos are starting to enjoy participating in half-distance triathlons and have even competed with some of the world's best and local celebrities although there are some who want to travel to different parts of the world and compete for a full Ironman race. Now, it is time for local triathletes to experience first-hand the drama, glory and spectacle of a full distance triathlon race with the staging of next year's Century Tuna Ironman Philippines which will be held in Subic Bay on June 3, 2018. 

Presented by Sunrise Events Inc. and Century Pacific Foods Inc., it will be the first time for Century Tuna Ironman Philippines since 2009 to go full distance that aims to challenge the physical and mental toughness of participating triathletes in a gruelling competition opposed to the 70.3 km races which were staged in the Philippines in recent years. The Ironman 140.6 Philippines debut will have racers swim one loop over 3.86 km then put them on a two-loop 120-mile bike ride before culminating to a longer 42K two-loop run all the way to the finish at Remy Field.

Century Tuna Ironman Philippines indeed became an avenue for the local triathlon community to grow and progress with an overwhelming consistent reception from ordinary Filipinos who want to further improve their healthy lifestyle to personalities who want to experience a real triathlon race. But for the upcoming event that will span 140.6 miles of pure toughness, it is an opportunity of a lifetime for more Filipinos to compete in a full distance Ironman race without the need to travel since the Philippines is holding the first of its kind.

One thousand assured slots are up for grabs to those who want to participate in the world's hardest endurance race and test their own limitations on how they can do a full distance triathlon. It is without question that holding a full distance Ironman race in the Philippines is something that should not be underestimated, and no doubt it will be one of the most exciting events to hit 2018 par none.
