We are the Greenhills Triathlon Team – where heroes train and living legends are made.
We are a mixed group of professionals and businessmen who share a mutual passion for adventure and the sport of triathlon. The Greenhills Tri Team is actually a spin-off from legendary Greenhills Running Club. A legendary running club that is well respected and admired in the marathon community way back 1970s.
The Greenhills Triathlon Team was created when the four ex-members of Tri Dogs (Gilbert, Willy, Peter and Jevon) realized that suddenly they became orphans. They do not have any team identity anymore when the Tri Dogs (Ex Tribe) got stagnant and inactive, eventually getting disbanded. That was when the four decided to form a triathlon team to give themselves an identity when they join Cobra Ironman 70.3 in CamSur. Eventually, Atty. Ric and Dr Eddie joined to help us form the team, thus forming the Greenhills Triathlon Team.
Our hero is a medical doctor who in spite of his age enjoys competing in ultra-marathon and 70.3 Ironman triathlon events. He is 73 years old.
We have been training together for at least 4 years and have been competing in major triathlon events like Subic International Triathlon, White Rock Long Distance Triathlon, Cobra 70.3 Ironman Triathlon, major marathons including Boston and New York marathons and ultra-marathons.
Team members have cumulatively finished more than 150 full marathons, more than 10 ultra-marathons, more than 10 half Ironman triathlons and more than 20 olympic distance triathlons.
Over the years, not only did we develop a strong bond of friendship, we created our vision of total wellness and healthy competition as a way of life.
We believe that through this multi-disciplinary sport, we can develop one’s strength in character and the heart of a warrior.
In order for us to promote our vision, we decided to establish a clear identity by creating a team uniform with the generous support of our sponsors.
We believe that by working together we can spur enthusiasm in encouraging people to experience our vision and spirit.
