My First Duathlon @ Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships 2017

My First Duathlon @ Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships 2017


Wootz! I completed my first ever Duathlon @ Powerman Asia Duathlon Campionships 2017 in Putrajaya on February, 5th early. Well, this year I decided to be more adventurous and try some new sports or fitness activities. 

My First Duathlon @ Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships 2017



I signed up for the short relay duathlon run-bike-run; which is 5km run, 30km cycle and 5 km run. This Sunday morning the highly anticipated Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships – Malaysia 2017 started with over 3,300 registered duathletes taking on the run-bike-run course across Putrajaya. I did the running (start and end) and Irfan cycled 30km.

It was drizzling when we started at 7am and then the rain stopped around 830am. It was fun  experience, perhaps next year we should step up the challenge by doing classic relay.
My First Duathlon ~ Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships 2017

Powerman, the premier label for long-distance duathlon in the world, established its presence in Malaysia since 2002. Last year, its Malaysia edition was conferred as the ‘Largest Participation in a Duathlon Championship’ by the Malaysia Book of Records and was acknowledged as the world’s largest duathlon in a Powerman series by the International Powerman Association.

200 children aged from 5 to 12 years old took part at the inaugural Powerkids yesterday. The grassroots programme initiated by the organiser, E-Plus Global Sdn Bhd, aim to nurture and develop more multi-sport athletes in the country.
