Sprint triathlon takes spotlight

Sprint triathlon, one of the most popular types of endurance competitions, levels up as it shares centerstage with the main event in Penong’s 5150 Davao unfolding 4 September in Tagum City, Davao del Norte.

The Sunrise Sprint or S2 features the 750m open-water swim, 20km bike and 5km run, the length of which is a perfect entry-level distance for athletes making a comeback in the
ever-growing sport or those looking to practice and build up to reach IRONMAN level. It is also ideal for competitors who are new to the sport because it requires less training and experience.

The organizing IRONMAN Group/Sunrise Events Inc. expects another spirited battle for top honors in the sub-category to the centerpiece 5150 triathlon on an Olympic-style setup.

Meanwhile, the 5150 Davao triathlon also continues to draw in participants, including foreign entries from at least 10 countries, guaranteeing another fierce chase for top honors in various age categories, including the overall championship, over the 1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run race course.

Other titles to be disputed are the all-male and all-female relay and mixed relay.
