READ: SUN LIFE AQUATHLON 2018


Sun Life Financial Philippines in partnership with BikeKing Philippines, brings back the Sun Life Aquathlon which gives athletes who are interested in multisport racing a venue to test their skills.

Sun Life Aquathlon, now on its second year is set to be held on October 14 at the Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite. It will also mark the conclusion of the first ever aquathlon series in the Philippines, thus the tag "Series Championship." 

At a recent press conference attended by Sun Life Philippines executives and Bike King Philippines, details were shared to the invited media guests, which includes me, (thank you Sun life for always including me on your bloggers' list!) 

The Sun Life Aquathlon is designed to be the perfect race for the newbie who wishes to get his/her feet wet in multisport, while it also gives the race-honed athlete a variation in his/her training program.
