Century Tuna’s Superbods: The Underpants Run returns for the third time! Happening on March 11 at 9:30 AM, the fun run kicks off at Subic Bay Yacht Club to take runners through a scenic route along the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Inspired by the tradition at Kona, home of the renowned Ironman World Championship, Century Tuna continues its own local fun tradition with the Superbods Underpants Run. Started as a pre-race activity for the Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 back in 2015, it has since then made headlines when it brought some of the world’s super athletes racing alongside superbods finalists and raised funds for a cause.
This year, Century Tuna invites everyone to come to Subic Bay as it opens the race to anyone who wishes to showcase their superbod fitness. Individual runners get a chance to win P 15,000 while groups of four can vie for the P 20,000 prize. Century Tuna will also be giving away P 15,000 to the individual and P 20,000 to the group with the most inspired costume. Loot bags with tons of exciting freebies, and finisher shirts are up for grabs for the first 150 finishers.

Two pairs of winners (foreign and local) are selected to bring home the coveted prizes: Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Superbods Award and US$ 500 each.
