BREAKING : 2018 Century Tuna Ironman Philippines | June 3, 2018 | Subic Bay Freeport Zone

After months of excitement, teasers, and speculations, IRONMAN Philippines is finally happening here in the country on June 3, 2018 at Subic Bay Freeport Zone! Get ready to be an IRONMAN!

Update #3


The 2018 Century Tuna Ironman Philippines is a 3.8 km Swim, 180km Bike, and a 42km Run which will happen inside the triathlon nerve center of the country! Start your training and see you on June 3, 2018 as Subic Bay once again plays host to this historic event!

The event also commemorates the 10th year of IRONMAN branded events being held in the Philippines.

We are still awaiting for more details about the event like the racecourse but one thing is for sure, IRONMAN is finally here.

“The enthusiasm around IRONMAN races in the Philippines is tremendous – from both spectators and participants.” said Geoff Meyer, Managing Director of IRONMAN Asia. “We’ve had this project of bringing a full-distance IRONMAN race to the Philippines for a long time. We are really excited about this special edition race and look forward to June 2018.”

Also, there will be NO RELAY CATEGORY for IRONMAN Philippines 2018. This is going to IM or BUST!

“It has been 10 years since the first IRONMAN 70.3 race was held in Camarines Sur. From 583 participants and one race in 2009, the sport has grown by leaps and bounds, with multiple races all over the Philippines. We at Sunrise Events are happy to be at the forefront of this triathlon renaissance and are proud to organize the 2018 Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines in order to showcase one more time the best the country can offer”. said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Founder of Sunrise Events.

RACE COURSE

The inaugural Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will aim to build upon the successes of the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay and provide athletes with a challenging, yet beautiful course to tackle. Athletes will begin their IRONMAN journey with a one-loop, 3.8km ocean swim in the calm, pristine waters of Triboa Bay, starting and finishing at ACEA Resort which will also play host to the first of the split transition areas. Once onto their bikes, athletes will head out of Subic Bay and onto the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) for a fast and flat two-loop, 180km ride which will bring riders back into the T2 at Remy Field in downtown Subic Bay. The 42.2km, two-loop marathon run will take in some of the best coastal views that the area has to offer and will be a buzz of energy with local supporters lining the streets to cheer the athletes home.

PRIZE MONEY AND KONA SLOTS

The 2018 Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will offer a $25,000 prize purse and 30 age group qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

“Century Tuna is very proud to be the title sponsor of the first full-distance IRONMAN race in the Philippines.” commented Greg Banzon, Vice-President and General Manager of Century Pacific Food, Inc. “We see the event as the perfect platform to promote a healthy lifestyle – the core value of our brand – and we hope that the Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will inspire many Filipinos to pursue their own fitness journey.”
