MANILA, Philippines — As the IRONMAN 70.3 Lapu-Lapu kicks off this Sunday in Mactan, Cebu, competitors will vie not only for titles across numerous age groups but also for the coveted chance to participate in the 2024 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.

The race, to be staged at the Mactan Newtown, is offering 45 age-group qualifying slots along with an additional 15 slots dedicated to promoting female participation as part of the event’s commitment to gender equality in sports.

These qualifiers will earn the opportunity to compete in the World Championship slated Dec. 14-15 in Taupo, New Zealand, where participants will experience the New Zealand’s stunning landscapes and the vibrant local culture firsthand.
