Description

If you ever wondered how the swim at the Ironman World Championships in Kona feels like, this beach and ocean water of Mactan Island at Cebu gets pretty close. It’s a challenging but definitely a beautiful swim. One need to stay focused at their effort and pacing plan not to get too distracted by several types of fish, coral and sea life. Its only one lap, rectangle shape, and you swim clockwise. The rolling start makes it a much more relaxing, spacious effort. In 2015, strong current was experienced, which slowed down below-average swimmers, but in terms of water quality, marine life and safety (swim was marked with bouys and lines all throughout), the swim course at Ironman 70.3 Cebu is tops!
