Posted 5 years ago
In keeping up with a time-honored tradition, participants of the BOSS Ironman Motorcycle Challenge XIII will take off from Clark, Pampanga on Jan. 13, 2018 and complete the 1,200kms of the Northern Luzon Loop.
The event is expected to draw some 500-700 riders and car drivers not only in pursuit of fun and adventure, but to promote local tourism and road safety as well.
Lito Flores, chairman of the BOSS Ironman Challenge organizing committee, said they have adopted significant changes on the format to ensure that the riders and drivers comply with road safety measures by strictly observing traffic rules, particularly on speed limit.
With road safety as primordial concern, the Department of Tourism (DoT), the Philippine National Police (PNP), have thrown their support to the BOSS Ironman, one of the grandest and longest riding and driving endurance event in the country. BOSS stands for BMW Owners Society of Saferiders, Inc.
This event is also backed up by local government officials from 10 provinces which are part of the route. These include Pampanga, Bataan, Zambales, Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan, Isabela and Nueva Ecija.
Topping the list of format revisions is for each of the participants or teams to strictly observe the speed limit in all areas. They are required to engage in fun activities like taking ‘groufies’ in designated checkpoints.
These fun photos will be posted on BOSS Ironman Facebook page in real time and the wackiest shots will win special prizes.
