Sun Life Financial Philippines, the number one life insurance company in the country, will be hosting its first-ever Sun Life Aquathlon on September 17, 2017 at Makati Aqua Sports Arena (for the swim) and then complete the run in University of Makati (UMAK).
The Sun Life Aquathlon aims to be the perfect race to newbies wanting to get their feet wet (literally) in multisport, while also giving experienced athletes, a venue to hone their speed and endurance depending on their training program.
There will be two categories for this race : the “Aqua Full” which is a 400-meter swim and a 5-kilometer run; and the “Aqua Lite” which consists of a 200-meter swim and a 3-kilometer run.
“Our mission is to help Filipinos achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives. While we believe that one of the keys to a brighter life is financial security, we also know that one can enjoy his life better if he is in the best of health. This is why Sun Life has committed itself to helping them lead healthier lives as well,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Jopa said. “Through the Sun Life Aquathlon, we can help budding athletes boost their fitness journey, and also inspire others to discover the physical activity that works best for them.”
Deadline of registration is on August 15 or until slots last. This event is organized by Bike King Philippines and is also a points qualifier to Bike King’s “Multisport Athlete of the Year.” (Aqua Full distance only).
The Sun Life Aquathlon is support by Speedo, Gatorade, Timex, and Gardenia. Head on over to www.bikekingphilippines.com for more info or check out our post about the event by clicking this link.
