Other Triathlons in the Philippines have been very popular. For Example, the Cobra Energy Drink Ironman 70.3 Philippines in Cebu filled up registration seven whole months before the August 5, 2012 race day. Word has gone around the multi-sport world that the Philippines throws a great show.
The Olympic-distance Century Tuna 5i50 race will comprise a 1.5k swim, 40k bike, and 10k run. It will be held within SBMA (Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority), a former U.S. Naval base, one of the two former major military bases of the United States in the Philippines, the other being Clark Airfield, which were both reverted back to the home country by the Americans in the early Nineties. Triathletes who join can say they have swum where battleships used to be, in majestic Subic Bay surrounded by breathtaking mountains. These mountains are breathtaking too on the bike leg because this race will feature some vicious climbs. But true to most run legs in Philippine Tri-races, the 10k run route will be lined with spectators, giving that extra needed boost to complete the required 51.5 kilometers total.
The title sponsor is Century Tuna, the leading tuna brand in the Philippines. Other sponsors are Alaska Milk, Summit Water, Gatorade, LBC, 2XU, Timex, Prudential Guarantee, and media partners Philippine Star and Multisport Magazine. The Century Tuna 5i50 Triahtlon Series Philippines, the first in South East Asia, is staged and organized by Sunrise Events, Inc., led by two-time Ford Ironman World Championship finisher Fred Uytengsu.
