In a month’s time it’ll be the “-ber” months. This is usually time for most triathletes to wind down and enjoy some kind of offseason. For runners, most of the major local marathons are done by October. It’s the time of year people start asking themselves, “What’s next?”
Of course, now that we have Challenge Philippines coming up in February, the offseason is shortened and triathletes will be looking for an event to wake up the tri muscles as they start building up again. For runners thinking about venturing into triathlon, a sprint triathlon is a great way to start.
As part of the Subic Fitness Festival weekend, the Subic Invitational Triathlon (Si3) will be held on November 17, 2013 at the Camayan Beach Resort and Ocean Adventure, Subic Bay.
There are two categories that will cater to experienced triathletes (coming out of offseason) and newbies alike.
The Individual Sprint will have a 1-kilometer open-water swim, 30-kilometer ride, and 6-kilometer run. This is priced at P2,950 per participant.
The Buddy Sprint involves forming a team of two who will go through the course (same as individual sprint) side-by-side and finish together. This is priced at P4,950 per team.

- Category: a. all male, b. all female, c.mixed
- Must cross finish line together
- Drafting allowed but no pushing on uphill
- No cut-off time
