FastTwitch Super Enduro Duathlon Opens 2023 Multisport Racing in the Philippines
The FastTwitch Super Enduro Duathlon happening on January 22, 2023 opens a new season of multi-sport racing in the Philippines. Around 370 duathletes from all over the country will troop to Clark Freeport Zone to race a unique duathlon format consisting of short run and bike distances.
“I always envisioned FastTwitch as a wake-up call after the holiday off-season. Short distances but due to the multiple leg format, there’s a category for everybody. Mini-sprint (2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k) is perfect for beginners. Enduro (2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k run) is tailor-fitted for the average age grouper, and for those looking for a challenge the Super Enduro (2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k run-15k bike-2.5k run) will definitely give you fits. It is also a good opportunity to practice your transition flow skills,” said Event Director and Coach Abe Tayag.
- FastTwitch is back after a two-year absence, and has retaken its position as the early-season race opener for multisport athletes in the Philippines. “Last year we weren’t able to organize FastTwitch because it was already April when we were given permits. Now that it is back, we are glad to have its biggest number of starters even if the event was missing for two years. The cycling boom during the pandemic gave us a new batch of athletes looking to try multisport—and FastTwitch is a good platform to try out the sport” mentioned Jumbo Tayag, GoClark’s Race Director.
Participants can expect a fair but challenging course that winds through the parade grounds and Clark’s “The Wall”. The race will feature all athletes of all skill levels, including elite duathletes who will be battling for overall honors.
The event is sponsored by Cycles and Brew, venue partners Clark and BCDA, SYLBS performance gear, Clarkwater, VelogicFit, media partner AsiaTRI and GetPica.
