Due to the Coronavirus (nCoV) outbreak, Ironman officials have decided to move Alveo Ironman 70.3 Davao to May 10, 2020. The decision was made in line with the advisory of the Department of Health (DoH) to secure the safety of the athletes.

The annual event, which was supposedly scheduled to take place on Mar. 20-22, include the IronKids and IronGirls events. The decision was also supported by Davao mayor Sara Z. Duterte who also cancelled a number of events in the city like the Araw ng Dabao events.

According to the official facebook post of Alveo Ironman 70.3, athletes who registered for the event will receive an email about the change of events shortly.
