February 13, 2020 - Thursday 2:02 AM by Daniel Joaquin
The 2020 Ironman 70.3 Davao triathlon, initially scheduled to take place on March 22, has officially been postponed to May 10 to avoid the potential risks of the recent novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak.
This was announced by organizer Sunrise Events, Inc. through the event’s official Facebook page in the morning of February 11.
Mexican Mauricio Mendez won the first edition of the race in 2018 with a time of 3:48:54, while German Markus Rolli claimed the crown last year with a time of 3:49:29.
The 2020 Ironman 70.3 Davao triathlon is the last of the three races under the contract between Sunrise Events, Inc. and the city government of Davao.
The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) also recently announced the postponement of annual events such as the National Sports Summit, Philippine National Games, and Batang Pinoy also due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
