Expo, listup kick off 5150

An expo on health and fitness, along with the athletes’ registration both in triathlon and Sunrise Sprint events, take place today at the WREC, Hijo Resorts Davao, marking the busy weekend culminating at Penong’s 5150 Davao in Tagum City, Davao del Norte on Sunday.

A merry mix of bidders, from beginners to weekend runners and those building up to reach IRONMAN level, including 10 foreign entries, are all geared up for the Olympic distance 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run event.

This is the first IRONMAN Group/Sunrise Events, Inc.’s endurance race in Mindanao after the pandemic with the upcoming race to be held after the successful staging of the full IRONMAN in Subic, the Sun Life 5150 in Bohol and the IRONMAN 70.3 Philippines in Cebu.

“We’re all set. It’s been a long wait to hold this event here in Tagum City but it’s all worth it,” said Princess Galura, general manager of the organizing IRONMAN Group/Sunrise Events, Inc.

Meanwhile, the 5150 and sprint athletes’ check-in starts at 2 p.m. alongside the opening of the official IRONMAN store and the Expo Open with a press conference set at 11 a.m. tomorrow to be followed by race briefing along with 5150 and spring bike and gear check-in.

Sunday’s race will kick off at 6:20 a.m. for Penong’s 5150 rolling start to be followed by the Go for Gold Sunrise Sprint wave start for all-male and all-female.
