CEBU CITY, Philippines — A record number of 383 young triathletes will be vying for the titles in their respective divisions in the Alaska IronKids Cebu happening early Saturday, August 10, 2019.

The children’s version of the Regent Aguila IronMan 70.3 Philippines Cebu will start and end at the Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. 

This was confirmed by Diane Guerta, the associate brand manager of Alaska Chocolate Powdered Milk Drink Alaska Corporation.

Guerta attributed the increase to the widened awareness about the IronKids.

Also, this event is the first swim-bike-run race of the IronKids this year. The previous ones were just bike and run events.

This event will have three categories—the race, the play and the relay.

The race category will have four age groups—6-8 years old, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14, in boys and girls division.

The play category will have category 1 for short, 6 to 10 years old, and 2 for the long, 11-14 years old. It will basically serve as an introduction race for the beginners for them to get a feel of what the race is about.
