WITH a field of close to 300 competing, the stage is set for a beginner-friendly racing experience in the 2nd MediCard Sprint Tri set on Nov. 10 at the Fontana Leisure Park in Clark, Pampanga.
The race, organized by Bike King, features a 600-meter swim at the Olympic-size pool of the water park followed by a single loop 20-kilometer bike course around the Clark grounds and a single lap 5-kilometer run on the rolling paths of the resort. The finish line will be at J.P. Rizal Avenue.
At stake in the event sponsored by MediCard Philippines, Standard Insurance, Fontana and Royce Hotel & Casino are specially designed trophies and gift items for the age-group winners, Team competition, and relay category winners.
“Wellness is more than being free from illness. It includes physical, mental and social well-being. This is the reason why MediCard promotes wellness through sports because aside from promoting physical health through physical activities, sports also improve social skills and gives positive mental health,” said MediCard president Dr. Nicky S. Montoya.
