Following the success of the previous races, Tri Ilcoos Norte 4 continues to strengthen its ‘sportourism’ advocacy. Participants from different parts of the country and international triathletes alike are awed by the world-class race course combined with scenic views and historical landmarks of the region. “I felt safe all throughout the race course,” quoting Michael Murphy, Australian professional triathlete and overall male champion of last year’s Tri Ilocos Norte 3. All these have been possible with the support of The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte headed by Gov. Imee Marcos.
Tigasin Triathlon, on it’s second year, continues to draw more attention to triathletes and local tourists as the venue takes place in an upbeat contrast of pristine beach resorts and perplexing race course.
