Nearly 300 kids raced the fourth Pho3nix Kids Philippines event on October 14 at the New Clark City Aquatics Centre in Capas, Tarlac, marking the largest turnout yet for the series in its first year.
Children ages 5 to 17 splashed, cycled, and ran to a fun-filled finish across five multisport categories including duathlon, triathlon, and fun runs featuring age-appropriate distances.
Every finisher received a Pho3nix Kids medal and breakfast meal at the finish line as well as timed results post-race. Advanced Duathlon and Advanced Triathlon participants competed for age group awards and trophies.
Finishers automatically entered a giveaway for one GT Stomper Prime bicycle courtesy of RD Cycles, while Milo Philippines provided over 100 pairs of free running shoes for participants.
Pho3nix Kids Philippines has seen a 69% jump in year-to-date attendance since its first race in March. Duathlon and fun run categories are proving to be very popular especially for kids from nearby communities doing their first multisport or mass participation event.
“I’m really excited to see how this Pho3nix Kids series in the Philippines has grown in such a short period of time,” said Roman Floesser, regional director for the Pho3nix Foundation. “It’s the objective of the Pho3nix Foundation to create a movement of active kids, and I can see that this movement is well and alive in the Philippines.”
The series will conclude with the Pho3nix Kids Philippines season finale on November 26, 2023 at Fontana Resorts in Clark, Pampanga. Register now at pho3nixkidsphilippines.com.
