World class triathlon races organized by Sunrise Events continue to be vehicles for worthwhile initiatives with the holding of the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay Presented by Big Boss Cement on June 2, 2019 advocating environmental awareness.
The country’s triathlon capital Subic Bay will once again host the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Philippines with Sunrise Events welcoming Big Boss Cement as the Presenting Sponsor from 2019 to 2022.
The newest player in the industry Big Boss Cement is an environmentally friendly company according to VP Ishmael Ordoñez who is a triathlete himself.
“Big Boss Cement represents innovation and environment conservation by producing super strong premier cement that is eco-friendly. IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay will be a test of human endurance but to be enjoyed in the surrounding nature which Big Boss Cement aspires to preserve through its products. Therefore, it makes sense to partner Big Boss Cement with IRONMAN as both brands attest to the human will to endure and persevere,” said Ordoñez.
Subic Bay – a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world because of its first-class hotels and restaurants, numerous attractions and pristine beaches – was the logical partner for 100 percent Filipino-owned Big Boss Cement the eco-friendly cement company.
“We are super tough. We are eco-friendly. And that goes well with IRONMAN and Sunrise Events because as you know this (triathlon) is the only sport where you don’t have to build an arena. You don’t have to build a gymnasium to hold it. All you need is Mother Earth. And so with Big Boss Cement we want to protect Mother Earth as well,” said Ordoñez.
“We pride ourselves in being Filipino. Nobody in the world, I’m telling you, makes the same cement we do. At least in the way we do it. So we are a proud Filipino innovation.”
Multi-awarded Aussie Tim Reed, Swiss Caroline Steffen and last year’s full IRONMAN champion Nick Baldwin of Seychelles return to face the determined challenge of their top rivals led by Sam Betten, Tim Van Berkel and Dimity-Lee Duke, all from Australia. Other returning pros include Laura Wood of New Zealand and Manami Iijjima of Guam.
