Sunday, 9th of August 2015, saw the second edition of the Mount Mayon Triathlon held in beautiful Legazpi City, at the foot of the towering Mount Mayon volcano. A small race capped at 300 participants provided the triathletes a “boutique” race experience that was very well promoted and smoothly run.
- I will start by saying I have NEVER seen crowds like I did on Sunday at any triathlon event around the world. I have done a lot of races now on almost every continent and this was a spectacular re-minder why I love living up here and racing in the Philippines. Simply amazing.
- I'll start with the boring introductions for those who don't know me. Hi - my name is Mitch Robins. I’m 27 years old and from Port Macquarie, Australia. I relocated to Subic Bay, Philippines in February after racing here for a couple of years and being blown away by the country’s natural beauty, complete with friendly and welcoming people with a passion for health and fitness.
