FOR the fourth straight year, avid triathletes are set to compete in an exciting contest of speed, endurance, and stamina at the much-awaited Aboitiz TRI2017 in September, while fostering a healthy and active lifestyle among spectators and participants alike.
Aboitiz TRI2017 takes place on Saturday, 2 p.m. at various sites around the scenic yet challenging Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club at Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas.
Aboitiz TRI2017, sponsored by Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. and organized by Bike King, brings back the unique Saturday afternoon standard-distance race experience. This consists of 1.5 km of swimming the calm waters of Pico de Loro cove, 40 kms of cycling (including a short but challenging hilly stretch and three flat loops along the Nasugbu-Ternate Highway), and 10 kms of running along tree-lined avenues, rolling hills, and another three loops around the Pico de Loro lagoon before heading to the finish line.
Specially designed trophies will be given to the top three in each age group, while medals will be awarded to finishers. The awarding ceremony and post-race dinner will be at 6 p.m. at the Pico Sands Hotel Baia Ballroom.
