THE COMING Powerman Philippines Duathlon races just got more interesting as the team competition participants will now vie for the prestigious Champions Jersey. This is in addition to the earlier announced prizes of trophies and gift items from event sponsors.
Basically yellow in color, the jersey is inspired by the same jersey awarded to the overall leader of multiple stage cycling events like the Tour de France. This is truly a lasting symbol of athletic achievement in the challenging sport that combines long distance running and cycling.
A team must be composed of five individually registered participants of either all-male, all-female or mixed. The combined times of all team members will be used to determine the overall winners.
Athletes entered in the team competition are also eligible to win in their individual age group categories. However, professional and elite athletes are disqualified to join the team competition.
Powerman Philippines will stage two events this year starting with the Anytime Fitness Asian Invitational on November 20, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. What follows is the much awaited Maybank World Series on December 4, 2016 at the Clark Freeport Zone that will offer slots to the 2017 Powerman World Championship in Switzerland.
