2022 Ironman Philippines and Ironman Subic Bay 70.3 Kicks-off Safe Return to Racing

The 2022 Ironman Philippines and Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay will be the first Ironman Asia event in two years.

After numerous cancellations and attempts, Ironman Philippines and Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay will finally be held this weekend at the beautiful triathlon country of Subic Bay, Philippines.

With over 900 athletes participating on both events, Ironman racing is back in the Asian calendar after two years of absence due to the covid-19 pandemic.  Despite the restrictions, athletes from 23 countries still made it to the event, but this will be mostly a local Filipino contingent, with more than 850 Pinoys making up the start list.

At great stake for triathlon enthusiasts in the Philippines is the allotment of 45 Ironman World Championship slots in Kona.  This will be an opportunity for the biggest Philippine delegation in the big Island since 2011.

The event, organized by Sunrise Events of Ironman Asia group, brings international racing back in Asia after an absence of two years.   Working with Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority and the Regionial Task Force-3, it aims to bring safe and enjoyable racing back into fold in the Philippines.
