Many local health-conscious celebs hit the road to run or ride the bike or join charity races even before the sun rises.
This year, Vaseline Men challenges everyone yet again to conquer their limits via the 2013 Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series. The celebrity-studded event is dubbed as the world’s premier off-road triathlon event. Slated on March 2 to 3, it features exhilarating trail run and triathlon races that will test even the most seasoned athletes. On its second year, Vaseline Men will bring triathletes to Liloan, Cebu for a more exciting set of challenges.
Cebu will host two triathlon events on March 2: the XTERRA Lite and the XTERRA Philippines Championship. The XTERRA Lite involves a 500-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike and a 5-kilometer run. The XTERRA Philippines Championship involves a more grueling challenge with a 1.5-kilometer swim, 35-kilometer bike and a 10-kilometer run.
More, the total cash prize is a whopping US$15,000 and the top age group finishers will vie for 40 slots to the XTERRA World Championships in Maui, Hawaii. Those interested in the March 2 triathlon events may register via the Vaseline Men XTERRA Philippines website. Capping off the Vaseline Men XTERRA Weekend is a trail run on March 3, which will feature demanding courses in 21, 10 and 5-kilometer distances for both the male and female categories. More importantly, top age group finishers for the 21K trail run will qualify for the world championships for the XTERRA Trail Run slated in Hawaii this year.
