CHALLENGE Philippines will hold two triathlons on February 21, in Subic Bay and on June 14, in Camarines Sur next year.
David Voth, the chief executive officer of Leverage Sports Asia and chairman of Challenge Philippines Race, is expecting participants from more than 40 countries.
“We are honored to welcome Challenge CamSur as part of the Challenge Philippine’s family of races,” Voth told reporters during Tuesday’s press conference in Quezon City. “CamSur has a rich tradition and legacy in the sport of Philippine triathlons.”
“With the passion and warmth always evident from the people of Camarines Sur supporting our athletes, it’s just amazing,” added Voth.
Voth also announced that Yellow Cab pizza has been tapped as the title sponsor of the race. “We could not ask for a better partner. Yellow Cab is symbolic of quality, passion and a positive lifestyle that makes it a perfect fit for the Challenge brand,” said Voth.
A total of 729 athletes from 38 countries joined Challenge Philippines’ last races in Subic Bay and Bataan.
“The 2014 Challenge Philippines race course in Bataan was proclaimed by many around the world as being the world’s toughest course. Our goal for CamSur is to design and deliver one of the fastest courses in Asia,” Voth said.
Anna Stroh, the event director of Challenge Philippines and Challenge CamSur, said that their primary goal is to give participants a chance to join in a triathlon that offers the highest level of challenge, is well-organized, safe, and is in a beautiful location.
