October 28, 2012 marks one of the most awaited and biggest triathlon series in the world – the Xterra off-road Triathlon Global Championships. The coolest part about it is that it takes place in Maui, Hawaii! Woot woot! Talk about fun, competition and relaxation all in one!


This year, the Vaseline Men will organize a five-member team to represent the Philippines for the first time in the prestigious event. The team is composed of Coach Noy Jopson and celebrity athletes Matteo Guidecelli and Drew Areallano. The two other members will be selected via the Vaseline Men Xterra Tri-Outs Camp: Race to Maui

Vaseline Men Tri-outs Race to Maui 01


The Vaseline Men Xterra Tri-Outs Camp: Race to Maui was held last Sept. 15 – 17 where seven triathletes competed for the two remaining slots on the Philippine team. The training camp included seven grueling and physically demanding Warm Up and Tri-Challenges which tested and prepared the participants for the actual Maui competition in October. The members all needed to swim, bike and run through challenges as well as learn different techniques to help them become a better triathlete. Moreover, they were asked to do mini-triathlon competitions under time pressure to test their speed. All the participants went thru at least one Warm up Challenge and one Tri-Challenge each day during the three-day camp.
