MANILA, Philippines – Some of our favorite local celebrities were at the Ironman 70.3 triathlon in Mactan island on August 1 to 2, to both compete and support their loved ones.
Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli and Victor Basa were among the 2,616 participants for the two-day race. There was also a race for kids 6 to 14 years old, called the Alaska Ironkids.
Here are some pictures from the race:
Actor and model Matteo Guidicelli was at the race with his brother Paolo and sister Giorgia. His brother competed in the Alaska Ironkids event.
His girlfriend, singer Sarah Geronimo, made it to the event to support him.
Piolo Pascual competed at the event. He was there with his son Inigo and sister Pats.
Kim Atienza, better known as Kuya Kim, competed in the race with TV commercial director Sid Maderazo and Gilbert Remulla.
Kuya Kim’s kids, Emmanuelle and Eliana, were also at the race to support him, and it looks like they bumped into Matteo.
Model and actor Victor Basa was also at the event to compete.
Senator Sonny Angara even wished the participants luck.
