WHAT : The Bataan International Triathlon 2015
WHEN : November 28-29, 2015
WHERE : Las Casas de Filipinas de Acuzar
Now on it’s second year, the SBR.ph Race of the Year (<600) winner promises to be bigger and better this 2015. How? How about by adding the one and only 3x Ironman World Champion, Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae in the mix? To those who don’t know, Rinny holds the fastest Ironman course record as well as the fastest run split in Kona. Aside from that, Bi3 has also improved in all fronts. The best part? You guys can expect an all-out after party! Why do you think the race is going to be held on a Saturday? :)
Still the best part of Bi3 is the picturesque venue of Las Casas de Filipinas de Acuzar. You need to see it in person to truly appreciate the beauty of the venue.
About The Race
The highlight of the race is the Largo category, which is a 1.5km Swim – 55km Bike – and a 11km Run. It’s a lil bit longer than the usual olympic distance, but still doable enough for everyone. If you’re not ready yet to go long, you may opt for the Rapido distance (our personal favorite!), which is a 750m swim – 30km bike – and a 5.5km run.
Aside from the distances, one unique feature of the race is the AMIGO distance (for both categories) wherein participants will start the race and cross the finish line at the same time! Bi3 also has a RELAY division so if you want to join the race but still aren’t ready yet to do the full, this is perfect for you.
The kids will also have the race to themselves the following day. Kids will have their own time to shine at the Junior Aquathlon category and the Parent + Child category.
F and F International Events Group, Inc. rocked the multisport world last September 7 when they announced the participation of Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae at the Bataan International Triathlon 2015. Stars have aligned as the race is perfectly situated just a few weeks after Kona. This is also the first time that a reigning women’s World Champion will race here in the Philippines.
But what we love about this synergy is that Rinny will not be here to race as a competitive athlete, but rather, as an ambassador of the Batang Tri Grassroots Programs, which she will help launch at Bi3. (More on that on the next post!)
Let’s show Rinny how excited we are!
As part of the Bi3 campaign, let’s show the champ how excited we are by using the hashtag #seeyouatBi3Rinny whenever we post something about Bi3 on facebook, twitter, and instagram. We will collate everything and show it to her on race day! :)
