Powerman Duathlon

Powerman Duathlon Pilipinas 2015 is a long-distance duathlon event that aims to raise the level of competition in the Philippine duathlon scene. This premier duathlon event will be held in the city of Balanga in the province of Bataan, which is less than a 3-hour drive from the capital Manila, on November the 14th and 15th, 2015. The event offers a classic category with distances of 10-60-10 km (run-bike-run), a 5-30-5 km sprint and various kid’s categories.  Powerman Duathlon Pilipinas is a qualifying event for the 2016 Powerman ITU Long Distance Duathlon World Championships in Zofingen, Switzerland. The event welcomes professional and highly competitive age-group athletes, seasoned multisport athletes who want to take on a different challenge as well as beginner multisport athletes.  The event was recently launched by F and F international Events Group, as the country’s franchise to the world’s most prestigious duathlon series.

Powerman is gonna showcase the beauty of Balanga’ Bataan

The Philippines is a perfect venue for the Powerman Duathlon event with a growing running and multisport community.  Duathlons are at times a stepping stone for budding triathletes but it’s a whole different competition when it comes to duathlons.  It happens at a more frenetic pace with participants being able to exert more effort as each discipline uses different sets of muscle groups.   This helps people to transition more into the sport and also be able to display their prowess in the international scene.  Powerman Duaman will also showcase the beauty and historical charm of Balanga, Bataan and give the participants a better appreciation of the scenery, the culture and the heritage.

 “More than just the chance of bringing the world class sports event to the country, this is also an opportunity for us to send our athletes to the international arena,” Powerman Duathlon Philippines President Tobias Bernando said during the official media launch held at the Balesin Islander Restaurant, Alphaland Makati.

Bernardo, who is also a marketing specialist and a multisport enthusiast, has teamed up with veteran multisport adventure athlete and organizer of the country’s biggest and longest running duathlon series, Thumbie Remigio and restaurateur Raymund Magdaluyo to introduce the world class sports event to the Philippines.

“Duathlon is the best training for multisport enthusiasts because it toughens up the legs.  Duathletes start cycling with already pumped up legs, having started off with an intense run leading up to transition one. To endure a duathlon, athletes need to build up their leg muscles’ power and stamina to see them through all three legs of this tough event,” Remigio said.

F and F events group is also the team behind the Bataan International Triathlon (Bi3) event which was awarded as the 2014 Race of the Year (under 600) by SwimBikeRun (SBR.ph) in the same media event. Bi3 also presented a plaque of appreciation to Las Casas, Local Government of Bagac and the Tourism of Bataan for the successful triathlon competition held last year.

“We are looking forward to the continued success of both the triathlon and the duathlon races in the Philippines. By organizing and supporting these sports events, we are getting one step closer to joining and winning the international competition,” Bernardo said.
