Tropical Paradise

Cebu is a province of the Philippines, in the country’s Central Visayas region, comprising Cebu Island and more than 150 smaller surrounding islands and islets. Its tropical conditions and beautiful island location make this IRONMAN 70.3 a favourite on the race calendar.


The weather during race time will be hot and humid, with an average top of 30 degrees. The nights are also warm, and we advise our athletes to pack and dress accordingly, especially on race day.




Swim start at the beautiful Shangrlia Mactan Beach – with crystal clear waters.  T1 is at the Mactan Newtown, about 100 meters away from the swim exit.

The bike traverses four cities forming an M–Loop, showcasing urban Cebu.  Here you will experience the famous headwind of the IRONMAN 70.3 Cebu!
