This is the biggest Ironman Philippine contigent to-date. 114 Filipino triathletes joined the inaugural Ironman Gurye Korea.
What was supposed to be an “easy” Ironman Gurye Korea race course turned out to be one tough bragging right for our athletes. Midway through the swim, the fog got so heavy forcing the organizers to announce that swim is cancelled. Marshals blew their whistles but no one stopped. After the few seconds, Whit Raymond blares on the mic “Race continues!!!”
Watch the video and feel the challenge of this 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42km run race.
