On August 5, 2012, Cebu was host to the Iron Man 70.3 Philippines. It’s one of the most grueling competitions in the world. This race featured a 1.9km swim, a 90km bike ride and a grueling 21km run.
Pete Jacobs finished 1st with a time of 04:07:38. Here’s what he had to say about the Iron Man in Cebu:
