Fred Uytengsu wants you to be an Iron Man
“Maging Ironman para sa sariling bayan.”
About 500 of the 1,000 Filipino triathletes responded to Wilfred Steven Uytengsu and Greg Banzon’s battlecry for Century Tuna Ironman Philippines.
After years of clamor from the Alaska Milk president and CEO to hold a full ironman here in the Philippines, the Sunrise Events Inc. finally relented to organize one for its 10th year anniversary.
Participants will have to conquer a 3.8-kilometer ocean swim at the Triboa Bay, take the 180-kilometer bike ride at the SCTEX in two loops and end the race with a 42.2-kilometer run on the road offering the best views of Subic bay in two loops.
“The race is 30 percent physical and 70 percent mental. Your mind will quit before your body, and that’s the key. You should be mentally tough,” said Uytengsu. #
