Celebrating five years of pushing the mind, body, and spirit

It’s only a few more weeks until the toughest race in the nation, and athletes are girding themselves for another round of extreme triathlon action. Pushing the limits has never been so personal, so palpable, so potent, but for the second time in Cebu, it’s just another test of survival of the toughest.

Now on its 5th successful year, Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines is back on the shores of Cebu for a one-day-only race this August 4. With more than 2,000 participants from all over Asia-Pacific, the country’s premier triathlon engages athletes in a 1.2-mile swim, a two-loop 56-mile bike course, and a 13.1-mile two-loop run course.

“Cobra has been a long-time partner of Ironman 70.3 Philippines. From Camsur to Cebu, we have supported this sport and its warriors since it first started in 2009. We’ve witnessed how these athletes thrive, persist, and survive, and Cobra Energy Drink is proud to be celebrating another milestone of empowering their minds, bodies, and spirits,” imparts Abe Cipriano, AVP for Marketing, Non-Alcoholic Beverages.
