Dubbed as TriAksyon, the 1.5-kilometer swim, 54-km bike and 10-km run event will highlight the great landscapes and heritage sites in the province and the participants will also be treated with a wonderful gastronomic experience.

Roxas City is considered as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines because of its abundance in marine species.
