·1 min read

TRAFFIC delays can be expected during the Ironman 70.3 event that will be held in Lapu-Lapu City on Sunday, August 7, 2022.

Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan urged the public to plan their trips ahead of schedule to avoid inconvenience in line with the activity.

Mayor Chan announced on social media that there will be road closures on that day from 4 a.m. to 2 p.m. to ensure the safety of the participants.

“Akong panawagan sa kadtong mga adunay lakaw nianang adlawa, palihug sa pagbiya sa inyung mga panimalay sa dili pa sa alas 4 sa buntag,” Chan said.

(I'm calling on those who have appointments on that day to please leave your home before 4 a.m.).

The mayor also gave the same advice to those who have scheduled flights on that day, saying it would be better for them to stay in establishments offering airport lounge while waiting for their departure.

Chan also urged pet owners to keep their animals such as dog, cat, cow, goat, chicken, among others, from the race courses.

He, however, said that a clearing team will be deployed along the race courses to ensure the safety of the animals and the participating athletes.

About 2,000 athletes from 48 countries are expected to join the event, thus the mayor urged the public to cooperate for the success of the event.

As of July 15, Chan said all the hotels and resorts in the city were already fully-booked, including the flights and other tourism-related services. (MKG)
