“We are extremely proud and very satisfied with the fast record breaking sell out of the individual and relay slots of the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines 2014 in the magnificent province of Cebu. On behalf of Michael Tan, Hubert Tan and the Cobra Energy Drink Team and Asia Brewery Inc, we thank Fred Uytengsu of Sunrise and congratulate our partners Governor Davide of Cebu, Mayor Paz Radaza of host Lapu-Lapu City, DOT and the rest of Cobra Ironman Philippines sponsors.”

“I was confident that in a few hours after registration opened it will be sold out because this year’s Ironman 70.3 was a success despite the inclement weather. The challenge is for the organizers to mount an even more memorable Ironman 70.3 event next year. As host city, in close cooperation with Sunrise Events, we’re up to the challenge.”
Hon. Paz Radaza, Mayor of Lapu Lapu City

“I am thrilled to part of one of the most successful triathlons in the world. The pressure is on to design a medal that’s worthy of my name and a prominent place on your display.”

“The Tourism Promotions Board is very glad that the 70.3 Ironman Philippine triathlon is gaining global recognition as a sporting event with the incredible application of thousands of participants for next year’s staging in Cebu within the first few hours of registration opening. The Philippines has shown it’s growing readiness to welcome and host international sporting events with a bigger competitive spirit and better organization and coordination. We congratulate the organizers and wish you more success.” – Chicoy Enerio, COO, Tourism Promotions Board, Department of Tourism
