 MANILA, Philippines — John Alcala sets out for another stab at triathlon glory, top-billing a stellar cast in the 5150 Dapitan that  fires off Sept. 10 in Zamboanga del Norte.

The Digos City native upstaged a tough international cast in the first IRONMAN 70.3 Puerto Princesa late last year then he ruled the 5150 Subic last June, making him the top pick for the overall championship in the Olympic-distance race set over the 1.5-kilometer swim, 40km bike and 10km run distance.

It is the first time that the historic Dapitan City is hosting a triathlon event with no less than Mayor Seth Jalosjos guaranteeing a memorable racing experience for the competing field that also includes those vying in the Go for Gold Sunrise Sprint.

A sub-category to the 5150 triathlon series, the short-distance triathlon series, also dubbed as S2, will be contested over the 750m open-water swim, 20km bike ride and a 5km run. It provides fun and friendly racing experience present in all Sunrise brand of triathlon.
