The Globe triathlon team prepares for the sixth staging of Ironman 70.3 Philippines
Globe Telecom has again proven its strong support for health and fitness by keeping its role as the official technology partner of Ironman 70.3 Philippines for five years now. Ironman 70.3 2014 takes place in Mactan, Cebu on August 3, 2014 having 2,500 registered participants from different parts of the country and abroad.

Globe is strong supporter of Ironman 70.3 Philippines since it was introduced locally in 2009. It will provide WiFi connectivity, laptops, Tattoo sticks, and cash support to the game so participants, organizers, and spectators can all have a wonderful digital experience sharing the event real time with the rest of the world.

Twelve of the participants belong to the Globe Triathlon Team which regularly competes in Ironman 70.3 Philippines since it started six years ago.  Team Globe expects to better their personal best in the local premier event.

This year, there will be improvements on the swim course as well as transition areas to accommodate the larger field. The slight change on the bike route presents a new challenge while the ever scorching run course will further test the athletes’ stamina.

Ironman 70.3 is an international triathlon competition that takes place in over 30 countries around the world. The event offers a unique racing opportunity to old and aspiring triathletes as it challenges them to stand out and be their best in three major endurance sports – swimming, biking, and running. Highly anticipated by over thousands of athletes and sport enthusiasts all over the world, Ironman 70.3 Philippines consists of a 1.9 km-swim, a 90-km bike, and a 21-km run.
