Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay, Philippines is the newest race to be added to the growing Philippine triathlon scene.

USD $15,000 prize money and 30 slots to the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. After three years of supporting the 5i50, Century Tuna with its commitment to providing a healthy and fit lifestyle has agreed to partner with Sunrise Events for the newest IRONMAN 70.3 race in Asia.

Bounded on three sides by a mountain range, and endowed with a deep natural harbor, Subic Bay was once the home base of the U.S. naval forces in the Pacific. It was America's largest naval installation outside the United States, until it was turned over to the Philippine government in 1992.

All that sand and sea have not gone to waste, as Subic Bay is now a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world. They come for its pristine beaches, first-rate amenities and friendly services. In fact the waters and beaches of Subic Bay feature attractions for all types of folks: miles of fine sand and calm waters for beach lovers and picnickers, spectacular corals and underwater fauna for divers and snorkelers, mysterious sunken wrecks for history aficionados, and even choice spots for a relaxing afternoon of fly fishing.

But there's more to Subic Bay than sun-drenched shores. Its blessed location at the foothills of the Zambales mountain range has given it lush tracts of preserved tropical forest, which have become favorite venues for eco-tourism activities and sports events. U.S. Marines used to hone their jungle-survival skills in these mountains, trained by local indigenous people called the Aetas who have learned to live in harmony with their natural environment.

Subic Bay is one of the best places to train and tri in the Philippines.

The 1.9 kilometer swim will start and end in Acea Beach in Subic Bay. T1 will be right across the swim exit at Acea Subic Nay Parking. The 90 km bike course will take participants in the different roads and highways in and out of the area. Participants will then head towards Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC) where T2 will be located. The run will be heading towards the New Container Terminal (NCT), heading back to SBECC for the finish line.

There are 30 qualifying slots to the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The inaugural Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon was conceptualized in 1977 as a way to challenge athletes who had seen success at endurance swim, running and biathlon events. Honolulu-based Navy couple Judy and John Collins proposed combining the three toughest endurance races in Hawaiithe 2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim, 112 miles of the Around-Oahu Bike Race and the 26.2-mile Honolulu Marathoninto one event.

On February 18, 1978, 15 people came to Waikiki to take on the IRONMAN challenge. Prior to racing, each received three sheets of paper with a few rules and a course description. The last page read: "Swim 2.4 miles! Bike 112 miles! Run 26.2 miles! Brag for the rest of your life!"

In 1981, the race moved from the tranquil shores of Waikiki to the barren lava fields of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Along the Kona Coast, black lava rock dominates the panorama, and athletes battle the "hoomumuku" crosswinds of 45 mph, 95-degree temperatures and a scorching sun.

The IRONMAN World Championship centers on the dedication and courage exhibited by participants who demonstrate the IRONMAN mantra that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. On October 14th, over 2,000 athletes will embark on a 140.6-mile journey that presents the ultimate test of body, mind and spirit to earn the title of IRONMAN.

Welcome to the home of Cape to Cape, Australias largest longest running and most popular four-day MTB stage race held from 18th to the 21st October 2018. Based in Margaret River Western Australia, this iconic riding experience includes access to stunning private stunning trails, vineyard visits, brewery finishes and some of the warmest hospitality the region has to offer.

Cape to Cape MTB was first held in 2008 to a field of about 100 frothers. A decade later, it now holds the title as Australasias longest running and biggest MTB multi-stage endurance race. Over 1600 riders hit the trails for our 10th-year-anniversary ride in 2017. The grand plan from year one was to introduce a new major mountain biking event to the magnificent South West of Western Australia, one that engaged the community, showcased the fabulous countryside and something that riders would enjoy and return to year after year. From the outset we saw this event as more a ride, not a race but even the most social riders cant help but get caught up in the rivalries that four days of stage racing brings out in friends and strangers alike. Many returns to catch up with those theyve met and ridden with in previous years. Sharing stories and a beer after each days race is as much a part of the experience as time spent in the saddle.

Trails do not require a high level of technical ability and comprehensive trail marking ensure that navigation skills are not required and the only riders weve ever lost turned up stuck at a local winery soon after. With multiple check-ins and water points included, riders are well looked after. Each days racing finishes at the event village with local hospitality on offer. Every stage is unique and will be super enjoyable with the final day starting and finishing at the renowned Colonial Brewery, the perfect place to celebrate achieving something truly epic!

Weve worked hard to each year improve the experience and the course from the year before while always maintaining the friendly, social vibe that has become the trademark of the Cape to Cape.

One of the most storied North American races, IRONMAN Florida began in November, 1999. It takes place in Panama City Beach, which is known for pristine beaches and moderate fall temperatures. Just as the summer season winds down, it's the perfect time of year to visit northwest Floridaand the event is as much a destination vacation as it is a race.

The swim takes place in the Gulf of Mexico, where athletes will have a short beach run in between laps. Waters are typically in the mid 70's, allowing athletes to wear wetsuits. The two-loop swim course gives spectators a bird's eye view of the entire course.

After exiting the water, athletes are challenged by a fast, flat, one-loop bicycle course. The terrain pushes the body in a way most athletes are not accustomed to: the absence of rolling hills or steep inclines forces consistent pacing. Winds are typically light in the morning, but become more challenging later in the day.

The two-loop run course, while flat, has many turns throughout the local neighborhoods. In the spectator-friendly area, thousands of residents and visitors emerge for fall get-togethers while supporting the competitors. The course also winds through St. Andrew's State Park, a favorite among participants for its shaded areas and wildlife. After the second loop, athletes round the last corner for the final quarter mile to the finish.

Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Cozumel is located 16 kilometers off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Boasting the second largest barrier reef in the world, Cozumel has an international reputation as one of the premier diving destinations in the world. Thousands of divers and snorkelers visit every year to experience the 200 feet of visibility, countless species of fish, sponges, anemones and coral. If diving isn't up your alley, the island offers both adventure and relaxation at every turn: untrammeled jungle, white sand beaches, and a year-round Caribbean climate are just a few of the things athlete have to look forward to pre and post-race.
The two-transition course starts with a single-loop swim in water that is teeming with tropical fish within the protected waters of the Reefs of Cozumel National Park at Chankanaab Park Beach. The 180-kilometer, three-lap bike course in Cozumel is pancake-flat, taking competitors along the spectacular coastline of beaches and resorts and through the town of San Miguel de Cozumel. The three-loop run is lined with local supporters and bands playing traditional Mexican music, creating a festival-liked atmosphere. The finish line is at the city hall square in San Miguel de Cozumel, where local residents provide support to all finishers like they were seasoned veterans of IRONMAN spectating.

This race stands out as one of the most urban races in North America.

The race kicks off with a single-loop swim in Tempe Town Lake. The rolling start is just west of the Mill Avenue bridge and begins by heading east. The rectangular course will go just past Rural Road bridge and first turn north and then west all the way back under the Mill Avenue bridges, where another turn south will put athletes on course to head straight back to shore and transition at Tempe Beach Park.

The relatively flat three-loop course heads out of Tempe and zig-zags out to the Beeline Highway, which gradually climbs approximately 10 miles through the Sonoran Desert to the turnaround just before Shea Boulevard. Athletes then return to Tempe Beach Park to start their second and third laps.

The run course is flat and spectator-friendly with a few small rollers, as athletes wind their way around Tempe Town Lake and through Papago Park. Athletes should be sure to pack a visor or hat in their T2 bags, as the course offers very little shade.
