Hi runner friends! Are you ready for an indoor duathlon challenge? Check this out! 🙂

Last Thursday, I learned about “The Fitness & Athletics Indoor Duathlon Challenge”. A 3k run, 20k bike, 2k run event wherein participants will get the chance to use world class fitness equipment such as the Intensa Treadmill for the run, and the Proform Le Tour de France for the bike.

Elite triathletes and celebrities Isabelle Daza, Sandra Gonzales & Niko Huelgas took “The Fitness & Athletics Indoor Duathlon Challenge” that night at Fitness and Athletics Store, Bonifacio Global City.  I was so amazed and impressed by their performance. Ang huhusay! 🙂

I asked myself if i can also do that, given that i have not tried a duathlon before. I am confident on the run part but the 20k bike, hmmm, that will be the challenge. We love challenges right? Haha. Also, this is a chance for  runners who want to try duathlon but do not have their own bike yet, just like me. Another good thing about this race is you will set your own race schedule, upon your online registration, you will be asked for your preferred race day and time. The event already started last June 6 and on going up to August 31, 2013. 🙂

Here are the full details:
