2023 brings us back to race where it all started in 5150 CAMSUR

The IRONMAN Group and Sunrise Events, in collaboration with the Province of Camarines Sur, brings back triathlon in CamSur, where the first internationally-renowned IRONMAN brand races started in the Philippines.

With commendations for the exemplary environmental initiatives of the provincial government to the burgeoning tourism industry, CamSur is flourishing. Attaining steady progress through time, the province now offers a variety of modern amenities in perfect harmony with heritage sites and old soul charm, apart from being an adventure travel destination.

“It’s been a long time, over twelve years, I always say it was a very memorable experience when we first hosted the IRONMAN brand in CamSur, and we are happy and proud for it to come back,” Congressman Luis Raymund Villafuerte Jr. said. “I am sure it would be bigger and better with more love and warmth from the province of CamSur,” he added.

“The province is more than ready, we have developed many new facilities and infrastructure that can really cater to the triathlete crowd.  I am very excited to showcase what CamSur has to offer this time around.” said Governor Luigi R. Villafuerte.

This year, on August 6, the 5150 Triathlon will be held in CamSur, taking the format of an Olympic distance swim-bike-run equaling 51.50 kilometers (1.5km swim, 40km bike, and 10km run). Along with the Olympic distance event, the Sunrise Sprint triathlon race is a shorter distance event that consists of a 400m swim, a 20km bike and a 5km run.

The Go For Gold Sunrise Sprint event offers an introductory distance to those who are contemplating on trying triathlon for the very first time. With CamSur providing a unique swim course – a 1.5km or a 400m swim in still waters would make a first-time triathlete’s race unintimidating. This will encourage younger athletes to become involved in triathlons while participating in a more relaxed atmosphere.

With the 5150 CamSur & Sunrise Sprint events held in its OG scene, celebratory perks are offered to 2009-2011 IRONMAN 70.3 and IRONKIDS CamSur alumni. A special commemorative ribbon for their finishers’ medals will be gifted to the alumni who finish this year’s race, and a special award will be given to the top athletes in special age categories under 40 and over 41 years old. TriClub teams will also benefit with having their own team cabana at the TriClub Hub, where their members and families can rest and enjoy exclusive amenities.

Aside from the perks for the CamSur Alumni and TriClub teams enjoy, a 5150 package discount is offered to any registrant who will race the three destinations this year. Instead of paying US$495, the participant will save $95 in the promo. Aside from this, groups of five can avail of a 4+1 Group Discount promo for any of the 5150 & Go for Gold Sunrise Sprint Philippines races in 2023, with the first 20 groups to register to receive a free bike jersey for each destination.

“It is exciting to come back to where we started. In the past fifteen years, we have been a witness so many milestones and achievements of the participants. The growth of the community choosing a healthy lifestyle has been incredible. Coming back home is a milestone for us, and we celebrate our IRONMAN 70.3 and IRONKIDS alumni, as well as introducing the sport to newbies in a course that is not intimidating,” said Princess Galura, General Manager of The IRONMAN Group Sunrise Events, Inc.

“Both the Olympic and the Go for Gold Sunrise Sprint distances will start at the wakeboard park in the CamSur Watersports Complex, exiting the wakeboard park to transition into the CWC road. Athletes will then start the bike course heading towards Pili-diversion Road and head to Barangay Anayan then back to CWC park. The run course will then head towards the San Antonio National Highschool returning towards the finish line at CWC,” added Galura.
