[Press Release] MANILA, Philippines—Not quite your usual run, soon keeping pace among the world’s top-ranked Ironmen will be the country’s Superbods finalists—all for a cause. Century Tuna Superbods: The Underpants Run will kick off Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 this March in Subic Bay, gathering the world’s top athletes to one of the region’s desired triathlon destinations for the second year.
Inspired by the tradition at Kona, home of the renowned Ironman World Championship, Century Tuna is continuing the Superbods Underpants Run that it started last year to cultivate a fun local tradition that also gives back to the community.
This exciting pre-race activity which made last year’s headlines is open to all participants of this year’s Ironman 70.3. Adding to the thrill of the 2016 Underpants Run are the 18 Century Superbods finalists who will be running alongside the triathletes.
The Underpants Run participants will run, race, and raise over USD 2,000.00 to support the National Greening Program of the SBMA Ecology Center. Two pairs of winners, foreign and local, will be selected and bring home the coveted Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Superbods Awards and will win USD 500 each. This amount will be matched by Century Tuna for the donation.
This year’s Century Tuna Superbods: The Underpants Run will kick off on March 05 at 9:30 AM from Subic Bay Yacht Club and will take participants through a scenic route along the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
“We are all excited about the return of this year’s Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 triathlon as it further strengthens our vision to help Filipinos live healthy. We also hope to cement new traditions like the Century Tuna Superbods: The Underpants Run that people will anticipate for years to come,” said Greg Banzon, General Manager at Century Canning Corporation.
