This year’s 18th POWERMAN Malaysia Duathlon 2023, scheduled in Putrajaya this weekend, will see the biggest number of participants which include elite and amateur as well as junior athletes, thus maintaining its status as the world’s largest duathlon event.
The two-day event will see a record 4,000 participants from over 30 countries including Singapore, Thailand, Japan, France, Kenya, Hong Kong, the UK and the Philippines converging for the big action in the country’s iconic administrative capital on 17th and 18th June. A newly-designed 80km course in Putrajaya awaits participants who will have to be in their best shape to battle against the gruelling course under the scorching tropical heat.
Organised by Fresh Events Asia, this year’s POWERMAN Malaysia Duathlon will see 3,500 adults and 500 juniors tackling the newly-designed course in the run-bike-run format race which starts from Dataran Putrajaya and ends in front of Perbadanan Putrajaya.
Apart from the customary Elite Men’s race, the introduction of the Elite Female category this year is sure to add spice to the most anticipated event which offers a total prize purse of USD 5,000.
