Green Triathlon

Filed under: Races — levyang @ 2:38 am

Ateneo taught me to be a man for others.  Hence, I’d like to do my part and help spread the word that Lasalle is sponsoring a triathlon race this September at Ayala Alabang.  As you will gather from the details below, this race is for everyone (hear that NIKE?  EVERYONE), from kids to adults who wish to try triathlon for the first time.  I joined my first triathlon in Alabang and I think the course is perfect for beginners.  Now, if only I can find a blue tri-suit to wear for the race…..🙂  

Calling all triathlon enthusiasts!  Even Ateneans can join.
