Port Macquarie Ironman, 1st May 2016

Thanks everyone for the kind words of support, congratulatory messages and for following every updates, thanks Jen as well as Mango for your countless cheers, it got us through. And of course to our wives who where there before the start, up until everyone finished, to make sure we get the best 'pictures' :) as well as shouting the loudest cheers. Port Macquarie bike course is honest and tough, add the rain and it became a brutal course. There were a few crashes that I saw, and I too had a near slip as my rear wheel skidded going up Matthew Flinders drive. I managed to recover luckily. The run course was wet, some sections looked like a tough mudder race with all the mud you had to go through. On the swim, due to low tide, one section was too shallow that we had to walk, but overall it was good, especially the weir crossing. Everyone finished safely, very painful legs for a few days but the finisher medal is well deserved as we worked hard for it today. - Rom Faro

FilOz in the Triathlon NSW Newsletter, July 2015

Triathlon NSW was obviously impressed by FilOz Triathlon Club as the group was featured in their July newsletter. Sarah Koen, Triathlon NSW Membership and Participation Manager, had a glowing report of the club thus far - she calls it "undeniable spirit of a community", but to us Filipinos, it's just plain old "Bayanihan" spirit. Read all about it here.

FilOz Triathlon Club in the media, July 2015

FilOz Triathlon Club was recently featured in the front page of the leading Filipino Australian publication, Ang Kalatas, in their monthly print, online, and eNewspaper editions.

Joey Guerrero, Manny Saguid, Jay Jueco, Ferdinand Boydon, Peter Loteria, and Delfin Posada travelled to the Philippines and raced the Regent 5i50 Olympic distance race in Subic.

Melbourne Ironman, 22nd March 2015

Debuting in 2012, IRONMAN Melbourne has since attracted the world's finest competitors. Athletes begin their day in the town of Frankston, south of Melbourne. The one-loop, 2.4-mile swim course leaves from the south side of the Frankston pier and heads north, before turning south to finish on the opposite side of the pier. The 112-mile, two-lap bike course incorporates the Eastlink Tollway, a world-class expressway closed exclusively for the use of competitors on race day. The iconic point-to-point run course also starts in Frankston, and concludes in St. Kilda, a funky beachside neighborhood with views of the Melbourne skyline.

Our History

How It All Started

  • Mid 2013

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Around the middle part of 2013, a Facebook Group consisting of several triathletes was formed with the purpose of competing and training together. It also helped that many of the members of this group lived in the same area. We struggled in finding a group name, but in the end settled for FilOz Triathlon Team, derived from Filos, the urban term for a Filipino-Australian.

  • March 2014

    First FilOz Race

    9th March 2014, marked the first race that the team raced together - the 2014 Tri-the-Gong. This was a momentous stepping stone for the team as many of us were competing in our first "real" triathlon - being a standard Olympic distance race, having escaped the grasp of the enticers and sprints.

  • 2nd Half 2014

    Spreading out

    Throughout the rest of 2014, FilOz started spreading out and joined races interstate and abroad. Now FilOz gathered together and thought it best to form as an official team and align ourselves with Triathlon Australia. Meetings were made, then a plan was put forth to become a TA affiliated member club in the next membership year.

  • June 2015

    Transition To An Official Triathlon Club

    From June 2015, the FilOz Triathlon Club became incorporated and became a Triathlon Australia affiliated club. This marks the end of the dream, and the beginning of exciting times for FilOz Team.
