ROXAS City, Capiz – Capiz is one of the best locations for triathlon events.
Greg Atienza, chair of the Capiz International Triathlon, said Capiz has been acknowledged as having one of the best terrains for triathlon.
The running event will take the route of the tourist destinations and historical places such as the Roxas City public plaza, Panay town’s church that houses the biggest bell in Asia, the new city’s development area at Pueblo de Panay and a lot more.
The Baybay beach, which has more or less 7.5 kilometers of shoreline, will be the swimming area.
The Capiz International Triathlon, dubbed Triaksyon 2017, on April 22 and 23 is one of the main activities in this year’s Capiztahan. It is also the first in Capiz.
The event, which will feature local and international triathletes, aims to showcase the province’s sports and tourism destinations.
Atienza said 250 triathletes have confirmed their participation but they expect to overshoot the target of 300 participants.
Meanwhile the DoubleDragon Properties Corp. and ACS Corporation each gave P1 million to the Capiz International Triathlon competition aside from the budget appropriated by the provincial government of Capiz. (PIA Capiz)
