BE Resort Mactan celebrates 8th year of Ironman 70.3 in Cebu

Last weekend, it seemed all Cebuanos were out welcoming athletes to the Ironman 70.3 Regent Aguila, starting with “free hugs” at Cebu International Airport and cheering them on during the triathlon. This is the 8th year Cebu has hosted Ironman 70.3.

Coming from 57 countries, participants traversed four cities in Cebu and the waters of Mactan’s Hilutungan Channel in their 1.9-km. swim, 90-km. bike and 21.1-km. run last Sunday, Aug. 11. (The “70.3” refers to the total distance in miles, or 113.0 km., covered in the race.)

The athletes also saw some of the province’s most beautiful resorts with the swim and half-marathon in Mactan island while the bike route took them through the cities of Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, Cebu and Talisay, crossing on Marcelo Fernan Bridge to mainland Cebu and back to Mactan.
