MANILA, Philippines – Actor and champion kart racer Matteo Guidicelli is looking to conquer a new kind of athletic race – the kind that leaves him quite happily with a deep tan.
Actor and kart racing champion Matteo Guidicelli
“For Holy Week, I’m going to Bantayan Island, we have a race there, a triathlon race,” Guidicelli said in an interview with ABS-CBN News. “I’ve been doing that (triathlon). This weekend, I have a race also in Cebu.”
Guidicelli, who is a three-time winner of the Philippine Karter of the Year award, credits his father for his new-found “addiction.”
“I started training and now I’m into it. Actually, my dad talaga [got me into it]. He did the Iron Man last year and he convinced me [to join],” he said. “I started biking, running, swimming, and then I got addicted to it.”
“[That’s why] I am very tan now. Just keeping healthy and keeping a fit lifestyle,” he added. “I found a new sport and I enjoy it a lot.” – Report from Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News

Popular Kapamilya actor Matteo Guidicelli took time from his hectic schedule to join over 3,500 runners in DZMM’s annual “Takbo Para sa Karunungan” yesterday (March 11) at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila. Matteo, who ran the 10km race, stressed that through education, children can contribute to their communities and help their families. He even pledged his dedication to DZMM’s cause and promised to participate again in next year’s fun run. DZMM anchors Karen Davila, Ariel Ureta, Cory Quirino, Freddie Webb, and Gerry Baja also participated in the race, which will benefit 75 scholars from Ondoy-hit areas in Mega Manila and Sendong-devastated Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in Mindanao.

CEBU, Philippines - Richard Gutierrez and Matteo Guidicelli, television actors and commercial models with Cebuano lineage, are expected to add glitz and glamour to the highly-anticipated Vaseline Men XTERRA event this weekend at the picturesque Amara subdivision in Liloan, Cebu.
Gutierrez, who has played several lead roles in GMA-7 shows, will compete in the 24-29 age bracket, while Guidicelli, a decorated racer-turned actor who has starred in television series of ABS-CBN, will flex his athletic muscles in the triahtlon segment of the Xterra Lite under the 24-29 class.
Joining Gutierrez and Guidicelli in the list of prominent personalities set to see action in the star-studded race are Senator Pia Cayetano, businessman/sportsman Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Jr., Liloan Mayor Vincent Franco "Duke" Frasco and former COMELEC commissioner Gregorio "Goyo" Larrazabal among others.
The two-day tilt kicks off with a demanding trail run on March 17. Featuring 21K, 10K and 5K categories, the top male and female finishers will take home cash prizes. Most importantly, top age group finishers for the 21K trail will qualify for the XTERRA Trail Run World Championships slated in Oahu, Hawaii this year.
Capping off the exciting weekend are two triathlon events on March 18 with the XTERRA Lite and the XTERRA Philippines Championship.
The XTERRA Lite involves a 500-meter swim, 30-kilometer bike and a 5-kilometer run. On the other hand, the XTERRA Philippines Championship involves a more grueling challenge with a 1.5-kilometer swim, 30-kilometer bike and a 10-kilometer run.
