Clark Global City Duathlon slated
MANILA, Philippines — A unique run-bike-run experience awaits 650 participants at the modern Clark Global City (CGC) in Pampanga as the Clark Global City Duathlon fires off on May 12 starting at 6 a.m.
Duathletes start the race inside the sprawling property and along well-paved roads of the CGC. They then mount their bikes for a smooth ride on the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) from South Clark to Porac to Floridablanca before heading back to Clark Global City to take on the last leg of the run.
The event features two categories, a long distance 6 km run–60 km bike–4 km run, and a sprint distance 3 km run–30 km bike–2 km run course.
At stake are specially designed trophies and gift items for all winners (age-group, relay, and team competition). The awarding ceremony takes place 11 a.m. following the race.
Backers of the event are Phoenix Pulse Technology, NLEX-SCTEx Metro Pacific Tollways, Standard Insurance, Udenna Group, Gardenia, Royce Hotel & Casino, TIMEX, and media partner The Philippine STAR.
Spicing up the event is the “Baga” Manila Food Festival offering foodies a wide selection of grilled meat, seafood, barbeque, and Kapampangan favorites such as sisig, menudo, embutido and more.
