DURIANMAN Triathlon 2017 | April 23, 2017

The home of the durian once again plays host to the 5th DURIANMAN Triathlon happening on April 23, 2017 in Davao City!


Brave ​the ​depths ​of ​the ​Pakiputan ​Channel ​during ​the ​1.5km ​cross-channel ​swim ​from ​Davao ​City ​to ​Samal ​Island, ​bike ​40km ​through ​the ​roads ​of ​the ​island ​with ​a ​beautiful ​view ​of ​the ​sea, ​and ​finally, ​run ​10km ​under ​the ​summer ​sun!

Durianman Triathlon was initially a Standard Distance event with an easy course in Davao City. In the few years after, it became an event for all – kids, beginners, serious triathletes. In 2016, Durianman Triathlon transferred to the Island Garden City of Samal, introducing the cross channel swim leg. DURIANMAN has now been streamlined to cater to hardcore triathletes who are worthy of comparison to the King of Fruits – the Durian.

RACE SCHEDULE

We will post updated race schedule once we get it from the organizers.

COURSE MAPS

SWIM

The swim will be a point-to-point cross-channel swim in the waters of the Pakiputan Channel. Race day is scheduled on a day wherein based on tides and current patterns, the course will not be too hard and not too easy. However, this will still be dependent on the weather on race day (wind, rain, etc.). The swim course will have buoy lines on both sides with the support of small boats every 100-200 meters, as well as jet skis and kayaks surrounding and going around the race course.

BIKE

The bike will be a two-loop course on Circumferential Road with short manageable climbs, which mean athletes will also go downhill in some portions. Athletes can enjoy the sea breeze and a scenic view of the sea as they ride along the 40km course.

RUN

The run will be an out-and-back course along Circumferential Road. The course is all concrete with fresh air provided by the greenery surrounding the course. Portions of the course will be unshaded so athletes should prepare for the heat come race day.
