‘The success of last year’s Aquathlon, which attracted a total of 422 racers, has been truly inspiring, and we look forward to offering another exciting race to this year’s participants,‘ Lopa said.
Can’t wait for the event because this will also be my first time and my husband to team up for the swim and run category. We’re sports enthusiasts fun with running but this will be a serious one since our first time with swimming is concern. Our training already started, we’re not aiming to win but for a successful finish, that’s all matter to us. Wish us luck guys!
Registration for the Sun Life Aquathlon will be until September 16 or until slots last.
