WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT US…
“the ‘Best Atmosphere Award’ goes to Ironman 70.3 Philippines. So far ahead of the other races in the category, this race also takes 2nd and 3rd place. Honestly, you’re truly suffering in Kona like heat and humidity but unable to stop smiling the entire way because of the absolutely crazy support out on course. The bike course is lined 5-6 people deep while the half marathon is an audio-visual sensory overload of music, dancing and thousands of screaming people.”
– Tim Reed, 2015 Cobra Energy Drink Ironman 70.3 Philippines Champion
“I was talking to a really nice guy and I think he was English and he is from the UK. I was at the end of the race and I was eating ice cream and he said: You know what, this is the Hollywood of triathlon, It’s like Disneyland here. And I said it was perfect and it’s a perfect way to describe these place.”
