Thursday, September 6, 2012
AFTER the successful staging of the first Triathlon Team Championship Series, the Sugbutriathlon and Sports Adventure Travel and Services is planning to make it bigger and longer this year.
The race will kick off next month.
This was disclosed by Sugbutriathlon’s Benjoe Gimenez after the overwhelming participation in the first tri series held in Bohol, Siquijor and Bantayan Island, when the over-all team championship title was won by Reuben Tri team, which was composed of Noy Jopson, Rochelle Tan, Tyrone Tan, Joseph Miller and Josemari Colmenares.
“We are planning to have a five series this time, because after we start with the first leg next month, we are planning to hold it every month,” said Gimenez.
He added that with the growing popularity of the sport, he is expecting to double the number of participants from last year’s eight teams.
“We are eyeing for holding it in a bigger venue this time, but there is a possibility that we might also hold it in some of the venues from the first series,” Gimenez said.
The race features 1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run among age groups.
