Alaska Aquathon 2016 in Manila

Amazing, just amazing.............

Last May 1, 2016; while others are thinking about Labor Day, we are watching kids compete for the 2016 Alaska Iron Kids in Sucat Paranaque

Photos from the event

The 2016 Alaska Iron Kids Philippines, the country biggest and most exciting race for boys and girl ages from 6 to 14 years old start their yearlong calendar of fun and excitement
Just like last year, we have the same venue: the Village sports club where an Olympic size pool serves as their starting point. A 100 meter for swimming and follow by run.

The Alaska Aquathon has three categories namely

  1. Race category with four age group
  2. Play Category with short and long distance intended to promote outdoor play for non-competitive participants
  3. Relay category with tow mix aged groups

It was nice seeing the same old faces and the new ones as well
While the children swim and run, parents and coaches are cheering them all the way; whether their kid is the first or the last participants to cross the finish line; the real winner does not quit and still smiles because they didn’t give up on the competition

As expected, we seems to have the same winners but with different ranking but that’s not what’s important;  the important thing is that they tried harder and believe in themselves that they can do it because they love what they do

What’s the best part during the event is; I got to realize that the sport is the just the preparation of this this for their lifelong dream

While others are saying goodbye because they are turning a year older and will not be qualified to join the event; they are now facing a new chapter in their life

Good to know that after the race, they have dreams and goal in life to accomplish
Hoping  to see them become lawyer or doctor or even an architect  and finish with their  education medal; I know that joining the Alaska Ironkids program prepare them to never give up and reach for the finish line
