Aquathlon has long been considered as the perfect stepping stone for triathlon. The Aquaman Aquathlon 2017 is designed for athletes who are just starting to get their multi sport feet wet and are not yet that comfortable with their bike handling skills. The Aquaman Aquathlon 2017 is an 800m Swim followed by a 4k Run while the LITE category is a 400m Swim and a 2k Run.

This race is a combination SWIM-RUN event. It has long been considered as the perfect stepping stone for individuals who want to have a taste of what it takes to be in a triathlon event sans the bike, as bike handling skills may be a little too intimidating for some beginners. This race event allows them to get the feel of a multi-sport event in preparation for the bigger training which would be in store.for them in the future.
Philsports Complex is the official venue partner of the Aquaman Aquathlon 2018.

F.A.Q.’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

Where will I leave my shoes / running gear?

Each participant will have their very own designated basket inside the transition area. That’s where you will leave your shoe / running gear before you swim.

My entire family is supporting me! Where can they watch?

All guests and supporters of the participants are advised to stay at the bleachers area. They will not be allowed at any part of the race course. They can also check out the goodies at the expo area by our sponsors.

What happens after the race?

After completing the race (and being an Aquaman! Yipee!), you will get your very own Aquaman Aquathlon finishers medal and post race race and recovery drink.

Where will I pin my race number?  

As a general rule, it’s advised to pin your race number AFTER the swim. It will take A LOT of time if you’ll pin your race number at the transition area. Most triathletes have a race belt which they can just clip on after the swim. Visit the booth if you want to purchase one.

What about the on course nutrition?

There will be plenty of water and Gatorade along the race course to keep you cool and hydrated.

That’s it! Don’t forget to have fun! ?

Good luck and see you at the race!
