It’s that time of the year again when triathletes from all over the world converge to take part in one of the most festive and spectacular races the world has to offer: Ironman 70.3 Cebu! For the 7th straight year, we’ve been splashing through the waters of Mactan, traversing the roads of Cebu, and navigating the looping course of Punta Engano.
We’re on the second half of the year already and we’ve had our fair share of races in Subic Bay. Being dubbed as tri country, Subic is known for the various courses organizers can stage in within its borders. This July 1, aside from partaking in an unorthodox distance, we will explore a different side of Subic and test our limits in the process. Let’s get ready for Bike King Tri 2!
We asked for it, and we got it! The country’s first (and maybe last?) Ironman race will be finally held on local soil. That’s 140.6 miles (226km for us) of unadulterated heat, hills, and wind. If you’re like most triathletes who are up for a challenge, “you won’t be disappointed” is an understatement. Let’s cut the chase and talk about what to expect on race day!
The Bike King kicks off its triathlon season for 2018 in one of the most iconic venues in the Philippines: Subic Bay! This place has had its fair share of races but each one is very unique. The sheer size of the place allows race organizers to customize the course based on their desires. For Bike King TRI 1, expect a mix of flats, hills, and of course, very memorable race experience. To make sure you have a pleasant race, we present to you the first edition of Sante Barley’s PREP (Practical Race Execution Preview) for 2018!
The Bellevue 5150 Bohol is definitely one of my favorite races of all time. It has this calm and relaxed vibe that’s a great way to cap off the racing season. The size of the race, the venue, the course, and the timeframe is a perfect “racecation” if ever there was one. One of the smaller races of the Sunrise calendar, it lends itself to a close and intimate atmosphere that is well suited to Panglao.
