The Ironman 70.3 Philippines triathlon competition, which is open to Filipino and international triathletes, will be held on August 22, 2010 in the scenic province of Camarines Sur in the Bicol region of Luzon island.

The event is a physically intense, 70.3-mile triathlon race where competitors swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles and run 13.1 miles around a demanding course in Camarines Sur, which has gained worldwide attention as the newest sports tourism capital of the Philippines.

The race starts at the Camarines Sur Watersports Complex (CWC), which boasts of the largest wakeboard park in the world, where the athletes dive into the freshwater lagoon and tackle the swim leg.

They then get on their bicycles and pedal through the national highway, where a spectacular view of Mount Isarog awaits them.

After completing the cycling leg, they run a lung-busting half-marathon through several towns towards the provincial capital Naga City, before finishing back at the CWC.

The competition is open to men and women aged at least 18 years from across the globe. Participants compete individually or as part of a relay team comprising three athletes regardless of gender or nationality under a corporate or collegiate set-up.
