Staying in shape and keeping healthy is top priority for me. But, joining the Ironman 70.3 Philippines competition… well, maybe someday. Far far away. Haha!
Although the idea of me actually being part of this much anticipated competition is still far from becoming a reality, keeping tabs on each and every Ironman 70.3 Philippines participant and tracking their race times in “real-time” is something I can already do.
Great news to all Ironman 70.3 fans and participants alike!
Do you want to share your 2013 Ironman 70.3 Philippines experience and get a chance to win a prepaid mobile phone unit from Globe Telecom? Just tweet or post your pictures using the #GlobePowersIronManPH hashtag from August 3-4, 2013.
As soon as preparations for the exciting event begin, all participants — athletes, crew, and spectators can already start telling the world about what’s happening by logging in to Twitter or Instagram.
Participants with the most number of unique Twitter posts and best photo shared via Twitter or Instagram by the end of the two-day contest period using the official hashtag will each take home a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. They will be notified by Globe once tally is made.
“We want to show the world that in the Philippines, Ironman is not just about sports. It’s a lifestyle event where everybody can have fun. And what better way to do it but provide all participants a wonderful digital experience using Globe high-speed broadband internet connection so they can log in at social networking sites anytime they want,” said Yoly C. Crisanto, Head of Globe Corporate Communications.
Globe, which is a strong supporter of Ironman 70.3 Philippines since it was introduced locally in 2009, is relying on the power of social media to bring the message to the world that Ironman is entertaining and enjoyable.
For this year’s Ironman 70.3 Philippines, about 2,150 participants from 35 countries worldwide are expected to join either the individual or relay competition composed of swimming (1.9 kilometers), biking (90 kilometers) and running (21 kilometers) activities.
The most number of foreign delegates is expected to come from Singapore, followed by Japan, Australia, US, and Hong Kong.
