The weather was just perfect for an IronMan race. But what made yesterday’s Cobra IronMan 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship a perfect one as described by the participants themselves was the collective effort of all stakeholders, from LGUs, the thousands of volunteers, medical teams, the warm support from the locals and the exciting side events.
Truly it was one race that will not be forgotten by the record number of participants.
