‘IronKids’ set in Subic

Kids aged 6-to-14 showcase their stuff ahead of the Regent 5150 Triathlon when the Alaska Ironkids Aquathlon is held next weekend at the WOW Recreation and Activity Center/Remy Field in Subic Bay.

The top finishers in the Ironkids Aquathlon I at the Manila Polo Club last April are expected to banner this weekend’s cast, including 6-8 yrs old titlist Rylee Marasigan and Kyle Toledana, 9-10 yrs old winners Michael Lozada and Aubrey Tom, 11-12 yrs old rulers Zedrick Borja and Katrina Salazar and 13-14 yrs old champions Juan Francisco Baniqued and Emmanuelle Joves.

The event, tipped to draw some 300 youngsters, serves as the aperitif to the Regent 5150 Triathlon on June 4 where Aussie ace Sam Betten is eyeing a record three-peat in the men’s pro side.

Also up for grabs in the Alaska Ironkids Aquathlon II are the relay long and short titles with the regular campaigners expected to dominate and a slew of newcomers out to pull off some surprises.

The event, produced and organized by Sunrise Events, Inc. and sponsored by Alaska Milk Corp., also serves as the third of a four-stage Ironkids circuit which will culminate in the Alaska IronKids Triathlon in Mactan, Cebu in August.
