The second edition of the Superbods: the Underpants Run kicks off Century Tuna’s Ironman 70.3 next weekend in one of the region’s desired triathlon destinations, Subic Bay. Running among the world’s top athletes will be the country’s superbods finalists–all for a cause.
Inspired by the tradition at Kona, home of the Ironman World Championship, Century Tuna is continuing the Superbods Underpants Run which started last year to cultivate a fun local tradition that also gives back to the community.
This pre-race activity, which made last year’s headlines, is open to all participants of this year’s Ironman 70.3. The fun run will raise over US$ 2,000 to support the National Greening Program of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Ecology Center. 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.
The Underpants Run will start 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, Century Canning Corp. general manager.
