- First Black Arrow Express 5150 Triathlon a huge success
- The inaugural Black Arrow Express 5150 race crowned Australia’s Mitch Robins and Guam’s Manami Iijima as this year’s first-place finishers
Black Arrow Express, last mile and consumer delivery firm under total logistics provider AAI, recently sponsored the 5150 Triathlon held at Subic Bay last November 4. In partnership with Sunrise Events Inc., the official licensee of the 5150 series by the World Triathlon Corporation, the event had an outstanding turnout of more than 1,500 attendees, including over 900 participants from all over the world.
As the title sponsor of the 5150 series, and official logistics partner of all Ironman races until 2020, Black Arrow Express is proud to host an event that encourages both seasoned and novice triathletes to challenge themselves to compete at Olympic distances.
“The 5150 race series reflects our vision and mission as a key player in the logistics industry. Black Arrow Express’ passion for performance is similar to athletes’ drive and relentless dedication for success,” says Allan Brizuela, President and CEO of Black Arrow Express.
Some notable race participants include Black Arrow Express’ very own President and CEO, Allan Brizuela, President of Sunrise Events Inc., Wilfred Uytengsu, as well as Ironman pros Sam Betten, Mitch Robbins, Jakub Langhammer, Tim Linn, Dan Brown, Manami Iijima, Dimity Lee Duke, and Leanne Szeto, amongst others.
“Our sponsorship of this prestigious event also highlights our commitment to the values and attitudes we live by day-by-day — strength, stamina, and the determination to go the last mile. We aimed to create a unique experience for everyone, from the expo all the way to the finish line, and we look forward to hosting the next 5150 triathlon races,” adds Brizuela.
