not trained long enough

long distance specialist
-      O2 Inter-Club Competition - 3 individuals
entries from a club can form a team, 2 best times are
added and entered as the team time (Team Polo Tri, Fitness
First and Herbalife are the front liners.. But who knows,
Xycos and the Herbalife-fueled Trantados may post an
upset. Not to mention Clark’s Multi-Sport Group, San Pedro
SPTUSA and Team Legenda Hotel).
-      O2 Relay Team Race - For cyclists who have a
friend who can swim and another who can run. Or for
swimmers who can find others who can do the cycle and run
legs. Each team composed of 2 or 3 members. No gender
differentiation.

promise.

The Race Course
Swim - start at boardwalk area (same as SEA games and
Subic Intl Tri), triangular shaped course, start at left
side, 1 km per loop, O2ers do 3 loops, Sprinters do 1
loop. December is a bit chilly but wetsuit not needed and
not allowed.
 
Bike - 80 kms of undulating terrain..ouch!!!. 2 loops for
O2. Each loop goes all the way to the Ocean Adventure
area. If you cursed the Binnictican hill in SuBIT 2005 and
SuBIT 2006, this will be a different kind of curse.he he
he. You will hate me while on the saddle but will love me
during the sumptuous lunch served by Legenda Hotel.
 
Run - 8 rounds around the familiar
Waterfront-Manila-Dewey-Sampson loop. I know some of you
will be groggy by now. There will be 4 ways to count your
loops: (1) by yourself - the usual way of counting, (2) by
TRAP race marshals - we will appoint staff specifically
for counting loops and updating you, (3) rubber bands -
you get one for every loop, you must have 8 bands on your
wrist before entering the finish line area, and (4) by
your family and friends - this is a grueling race, make
sure to bring your own cheering squad and loop counters.
