International Field at Regent 5i50 in Subic Philippines this weekend

A crack international field will be vying for top honors in Subic Bay such as top Aussie pros Casey Munro, Justin Granger, Clayton Fettell, Michael Murphy, Dan Brown, Belinda Granger, Dimity Lee-Duke and Thai Carole Fuchs. On the other hand, spearheading the local challenge are elite triathletes Banjo Norte, Jenny Rose Guerrero, LC Langit while celebrities Kim Atienza, Matteo Guidicelli, Victor Basa, Onemig Bondoc and Isabelle Daza have also signed up to spice up the event.

Clayton Fettel is the pre-race favorite

The race, considered as Regent’s answer to triathletes who love to do short-distance but challenging races in a world-class production setup, will be made up of a 1.5km swim at the waters of the Hanjin Port following a clockwise flow, a 40km point-to-point bike ride, starting from the flat fast runways of Subic International Airport, heading to climbs and descents of IDESS, then to the roads of hilly climbs of Zambales and the fast descents of Aparri road.

The run leg is a 10km run which will have a clockwise flow. It will start at the Transition 2 in Remy Field and then head to Rizal highway for the first turn around in Malawaan wharf. It will then head back in front of Remy Field, going to Dewey avenue for the second turn around near the lighthouse. Participants then head back to Remy Field for that well-deserved finish line.

“We commend Regent Foods for joining the ever-growing list of backers of this popular three-sport athletic competition. With a talent-laden international field, we expect a world-class competition since the event also serves as a fitting tune-up for those competing in the Ironman,” said Wilfred Uytengsu, president of the organizing Sunrise Events, Inc., which also handles the Ironman and the Ironkids and the Safeguard 5i50 triathlon.
