MANILA, PHILIPPINES – F and F International Events Group Inc., launched last month its Powerman Duathlon Pilipinas, the country’s franchise of the world’s most prestigious duathlon series.
The first edition of the series will be held in Balanga Bataan on November 15, 2015 and will feature the Powerman Classic distance of 10km-60km-10km as well as the Short category with a 5km-30km-5km distance.
The duathlon series is the official qualifying event for ITU Powerman Long Distance Duathlon World Championship.
“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.
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.
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.
