Posted 3 years ago
Top professionals gearing up for bigger battles and triathletes specializing in short distances mix it up for the inaugural Black Arrow Express 5150 on Nov. 4 in Subic Bay.
The Olympic distance 1.5-kilometer swim-40K bike-10K run event in the country’s triathlon capital has lured triathletes from 21 countries, with competitions up in the Pro, Asian Elite and various age-group categories. Also on tap are relay events for male, female and mixed.
“Subic has been incredibly cooperative in helping ensure the successful staging of each triathlon event,” said Wilfred Uytengsu, president of the organizing Sunrise Events, Inc.
Black Arrow Express 5150 is billed as the answer to triathletes seeking to step up for tougher races or get the hang of the tri-sport, depending on their skill levels.
The second Sunrise Sprint short distance race series (S2) will also be staged—750-m open water swim, 20K bike ride, 5K run.
