Triathletes! Get ready!!! Yellow Cab has just partnered up with the Challenge Philippines Triathlon to be held at CamSur next year 2015.  The course for this big international race is designed to be one of the fastest courses in Asia said Mr. David Roth who is the CEO of Leverage Sports Asia and chairman of Challenge Philippines Race.

During the press event held at 55 Events Place in Quezon City last July 29, 2014, the organizers shared "The 2014 Challenge Philippines race course in Bataan was proclaimed by many around the world as being the ‘World's Toughest Course,’ our goal for Challenge CamSur is to design and deliver one of the fastest courses in Asia and the fastest course in Philippines." 

The Challenge Philippines earlier this year showcased over 729 athletes from 38 countries. Triathletes from different walks of life, including two crown princes of Bahrain, competed in the inaugural race. Twenty-five of the world’s fastest pro triathletes participated in the race competing for two million pesos, the largest prize purse in Asia. Among them are Australia’s Michael Murphy and other current world champions. 




The race’s broadcast coverage reached over 82 counties worldwide showcasing Philippines as the most desired lifestyle and sports destination. Challenge Family, owner of the global triathlon series of long and half distance races, is known worldwide for giving the most iconic and beautiful race locations. This is exemplified with the announcement of the new Challenge CamSur.


So what is a triathlon? According to Wiki, a triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines. It involved swimming, cycling and running in immediate succession over various distances. Triathletes compete for fastest overall course completion time, including timed "transitions" between the individual swim, cycle and run components. 


"In celebration of a new Challenge race in CamSur and a new title sponsorship from Yellow Cab Pizza, plus it’s the 30th Anniversary of the birthplace of Challenge Family Triathlons in Roth, Germany, we will roll back Challenge Philippine's race entry prices to US$190," Voth added

Gov. Miguel Luis Villafuerte
“We in the province of CamSur are proud to be part of the Challenge Family Global Series and we are looking forward to host the CamSur Challenge triathlon next year as a banner event of Challenge Philippines,” 

CamSur Gov. Miguel Luis Villafuerte said. “Being the host of the first major international triathlon event sanctioned by the World Triathlon Corporation in the country in 2009, and this was for three consecutive years until 2011, our contribution to the growth of triathlon in the Philippines is substantive. This has established for us a solid international reputation in terms of hosting world-class triathlon events.” 

“There is strong government support and we are able to offer a complete and integrated package… To add to all these is the enthusiasm and involvement of the local residents who go out as early as 4 a.m. and line the race routes to cheer for the competitors,” Villfuerte said.

The new title sponsorship with Yellow Cab Co. for Challenge Philippines and Challenge Camsur, with an initial term of 3 years, will begin immediately. The famous pizza chain has been a long-time supporter of triathlon by supporting its own team, Team Yellow Cab, and many sport development programs, including its support of Challenge Philippines in 2014 as an official partner. 

Mr. Roy Quejada - COO Yellow Cab Pizza
“The Challenge Philippines Brand and Yellow Cab share a certain status in the market. Only a few can be a triathlete, but a lot of people are aspiring to be one. Similar to Yellow Cab, customers sees the brand as aspirational, a brand that you want to be associated with. This is the reason why we are one family with the Challenge!” said Mr. Roy Quejada


“Being part of the Challenge Family provides an ideal platform to continue our objectives established over a decade ago, but with a wider reach… I am very delighted to have Yellow Cab on board as a Title Sponsor of the Challenge Brand in Philippines. Having supported Triathlon since 2008, having Yellow Cab as part of the Family is a wonderful match”, Challenge Director Jumbo Tayag said. 


"In celebration of a new Challenge race in CamSur and a new title sponsorship from Yellow Cab Pizza, plus it’s the 30th Anniversary of the birthplace of Challenge Family Triathlons in Roth, Germany, we will roll back Challenge Philippine's race entry prices to US$190," Voth said.
