Ironman is an international triathlon competition that takes place in over 30 countries around the world. This event offers a unique racing opportunity to old and aspiring triathletes as it challenges them to stand out and be their best in three major endurance sports – swimming, biking, and running.
Here in the Philippines, we have the Ironman 70.3, a race series that has a shorter course. Also known as 'Half-Ironman', the race consists of a 1.9 km-swim, a 90-km bike, and a 21-km run. As with the Ironman series, it consists of a number of qualifying races at various locations worldwide, culminating in a world championship race with athletes drawn largely from top finishers in the qualifying events.

This year’s event promises improvements on the swim course as well as transition areas to accommodate the larger field. The slight change on the bike route presents a new challenge while the ever scorching run course will further test the athletes’ stamina.
