Wednesday, July 4, 2012
THE distances in the Alaska Ironkids will be followed in the Supertrikids division of the 2012 Sogod Mayor Moonyeen Durano Triathlon Cup set on July 14 at the Alegre Beach Resort in Sogod.
The Alaska Ironkids on Aug. 4 in Lapu-Lapu is the junior counterpart of the premier Ironman event.
“The supertrikids race will be using the Ironkids distance because this will serve as a tune-up race for them, especially since a lot of the participants are from Cebu,” said Triathlon Association of the Phiippines executive director Oscar “Boying” Rodriguez.
The supertrikids has specialized distances according to the age group.
To underscore the growing popularity of the sport, especially to kids, a total of 150 young triathletes have signed up for the Alaska Ironkids, surpassing the 95 who joined in Camsur last year.
Interested participants of the Sogod triathlon may register at the Ayala Active Zone and at the Rudy Project until July 12.
