Wounded but Still Fighting

Even with bleeding legs and arms, young triathletes (ages 15 and below) from Zambales, Laguna and Manila finished the race at the recently concluded Batang Pinoy Triathlon Game.

Six out of 12 triathletes had an accident because of the slippery bike route. But this didn’t stop anyone in completing the course which includes 200m swim – 5k bike – 1.2k run.

IBTOR Challenge 2011- Triathlon with a Twist

November 3rd, 2011 5 comments

I was surprised when I was reading this funny triathlon race happening on December 17 (Saturday) at Rosales, Pangasinan. Continue reading to know why I was all smiles…

IBTOR Challenge is a triathlon match with a local twist of the three sports disciplines: swimming, cycling, and running. It kicks off at the Acop Dam and loops around our Eco-Tourism Area, passes at the heart of the municipality and culminates at the SM City Rosales.


The IBTOR Challenge comprises of the following:

• SWIMMING – the pair of swimmers has to carry with them a banana log in crossing the Acop Dam with the distance of 350m. It is necessary for them to surrender the banana log in order for them to qualify for the second leg which is running.


• RUNNING – subsequently the participants will have to run the 9.5km trail of rough and mountainous road.


• CYCLING – for the third leg of the match, the cycling stage exposes the Rosalenian culture. Pedicabs are being utilized instead of the commonly used mountain bikes to negotiate the distance of 15km. The participants (in pairs) must take turns in steering the pedicab.


• RUNNING – in the last leg of the event, the participants will have to run the 10km distance to be able to finish the race. The participants will be tied by a rope on each opposite hand in order for them to reach the finish line together.



A hefty prize awaits the winner and the names of the finishers will be engraved in the IBTOR Landmark which is a tangible legacy for those who completed every IBTOR Challenges. In this wall, their names will be inscribed at the stone tablet and be carried through in the years to come.


COOL ayt?

And so i thought that SWIM-BIKE-RUN is so cool, this BIKE-KAYAK-RUN race is cooler for me. AWESOME!

Yeah, if I have a bike for racing in a tourney like this, I would love to join. Just the thought of doing this and finishing is already an achievement for me.
