Iron­man 70.3 re­turns to Cebu

Sun Star Cebu Yearbook - - FRONT PAGE -

More than 2,000 ath­letes vis­ited Cebu in early Au­gust 2013 to com­pete in the Co­bra Iron­man 70.3, which the prov­ince hosted for a sec­ond straight year. The com­pe­ti­tion tested the com­peti­tors’ en­durance, as well as the pa­tience of com­muters in four cities.

Lapu- Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza, in whose cities the 1.9kilo­me­ter swim and 21- kilo­me­ter run took place, thanked con­stituents for their un­der­stand­ing.

“We have a big­ger host­ing chal­lenge in 2014 as we at­tempt to undo our­selves,” she said. Lo­cal govern­ment and po­lice of­fi­cials cred­ited the suc­cess of the event to close co­or­di­na­tion among lo­cal of­fi­cials and or­ga­niz­ers, as well as an in­for­ma­tion cam­paign, par­tic­u­larly on the road clo­sures, a week be­fore the race.
