IRONMAN full distance race in the country on our 10th year      our website.
anniversary!

We at Sunrise Events Inc. worked closely with IRONMAN
Asia to ensure consistency in rules between the local
Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines Race Rules and the
2017 IRONMAN Global Competition Rules. You can view
the rules from our website.

With over 1,200 participants and 21 pros from all over the
world, the first full distance IRONMAN will be a race to
remember. There will be no relay category for this race –
so it’s time go hard or go home. Winners from the pro
category, Asian elite category and age groupers will take
home a range of prizes, treats as well as the title and
bragging rights for the rest of the year!

This year, the race will again feature the rolling start for
the swim where triathletes are seeded according to swim
zones based on a recent finished race. The two-loop swim
course at the Acea Beach Resort will be a 3.8 km counter-
clockwise swim, followed by a 180 km bike and 42.2 km
run course. The course will be challenging – only the
toughest athletes will be able to endure the two-loop
swim, pedal through the hot and hilly SCTEX bike course,
and power through the punishing run course around Subic
Bay.

Once the home base of the U.S. Naval Forces in the Pacific,
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. 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.

                                                                                                                           3
