The Cobra Ironman 70.3 event has become an event to look forward to not just for triathletes but also for the Cebuanos who want to do some star-sighting.
This year, seven celebrities were spotted: Matteo Guidicelli, whose girlfriend Sarah Geronimo waited for him at the finish line; Paul Jake Castillo, who came with girlfriend Kaye Abad; plus Kim Atienza and Victor Basa.
Yup, this actor joined as well...
Oh yes, they cheer, take his photo, and some scream, "I love you, Piolo!!!"
This year, he was part of the Team Sunlife, where he was the designated cyclist. He biked the 56-mile course for 3 hours and 11 minutes.
BEFORE THE RACE, he trained with his sister Pats Pascual, son Iñigo, and his Pinarello bike.
AFTER THE RACE, he extended his stay in Cebu, where he had a solid bonding with his group, rode the banana boat, and took selfies and groufies!
