Northern Cement, Trisports launch triathlon event ‘Tigasin Series’

Sunday, October 29, 2017

NORTHERN Cement Corporation and Trisports Solutions Inc bring you are “Tigasin Series: Tagisan ng mga Tigasin”, a two-part event that consists of a cycling challenge and a triathlon race.

The Tigasin Ronda Norte will take place on February 15 to 18, 2018 while the Tigasin Triathlon is set on May 13, 2018.

To kick-off the Tigasin Series is the Tigasin RONDA NORTE (TRN600), a four-day cycling event from Sual, Pangasinan all the way to Pagudpud. Now on its second year with a new and more demanding course, it aims to promote road safety among cyclists and motorists, at the same time is a fund-raising event for each team’s chosen beneficiaries.

The TRN600 is the first-of-its-kind cycling challenge with the approximate distance of 600 kilometers. The teams who will be completing the four-day challenge will receive a pledge of P100,000 for their chosen beneficiaries.

The Northern Cement Corporation celebrates more than 50 years of paving progress in communities by giving back to different causes through this event.

Next up is the much-awaited Tigasin Triathlon with Open Water Swim. With last year's favorable outcome, festivities will go back to the capital municipality of Pangasinan, at Lingayen: a new triathlon destination.

As the multisport community continues to grow, the Tigasin Triathlon is becoming one of the "must race” events. The race weekend will start on May 12, 2018 with the Open Water Swim at the beachfront of the Capitol Beach Resort, the same location where the triathlon race will be held a day after.

This event would not be possible without the full support of Gov. Amado “Pogi” Espino III of the Province of Pangasinan.

Registration for the Tigasin Triathlon and Open Water Swim opened last October 26. Visit www.trisports.ph to register.

The events have also been made possible by their marketing partners Light N’ Up Marketing, 2XU, Neptune Actives, Movement Perfromance Manila and media partners GMA Regional TV, Business Mirror, Cook Magazine, Health and Fitness, Philippines Graphic, Pilipino Mirror and Philippines Locale. (PR)
