When asked why Century Tuna decided to finally stage a 70.3 event, Mr Greg Banzon, General Manager of Century Pacific Food Inc. said, ” We felt it was time to offer Filipinos a bigger challenge that keeps pace with the expectations of the community. The interest so far, which includes that coming from the international triathlete circles tells us that the inaugural Century Tuna Ironman will be met with high anticipation and excitement.”
And this is how triathlon community has surely welcomed the inaugural Century Tuna Ironman 70.3.
In a few hours, local and international triathletes will be :
– swimming 1.9km to and from Sands of Triboa,
– biking 90km from the Subic airport runway all the way to SCTEX and then back via Florida Blanca interchange
– running 21km
Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 in Subic Bay is a qualifying race for the 70.3 World Championship In Austria. It is expected to be a truly competitive race. The roster of stars at the event include 3x Ironman World Champion Craig Alexanders and superstars like Luke Mackenzie and Caroline Steffen.
