Triathlon to test new sports city for SEA Games

Date : 12 Aug 2019

Tarlac, Philippines, August 12, 2019: The New Clark City sports complex 100km north of Manila is geared up for a triathlon race slated from October 19-20.

At least 700 participants are expected at the New Clark City Triathlon 2019 to test the country’s new sports facilities before the upcoming 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games from November 30-December 11.

“New Clark City is a perfect venue for a triathlon since it’s the first facility intended for the SEA Games. Participants will have a chance to be one of the first to use the pools at the Aquatics Centre and the track oval at the Athletics Stadium,” said GoClark Sports and Events Director Jumbo Tayag.

GoClark is an organisation that promotes health and wellness through endurance and multisport events.

The 20,000-seater Athletics Stadium and 2,000-seater Aquatics Centre are already more than 90 percent completed.

“This is totally a fresh change from the usual venues in Subic and Clark,” Tayag added.

He also cited the new road from the new city to the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway which will boost accessibility in the area and ease traffic especially during main events.

The race also serves as a send-off for the national triathletes who will compete at the biennial SEA Games.

The first day will be a children’s triathlon for 8-14 years and the major race will be on the second day.

Registration is open from August 12 to October 8.
