What about the timing chip?

Run 1 / Run 2 (6km and 3km)

The run will be an easy 2 loop 6km run (3km per loop) and then a 1 loop 3k run after the bike (this is your run 2). We made it loops so that it would be easy for everyone (especially the newbies!) to pace themselves throughout the run. There will be PLENTY of aid stations throughout the run course so make sure to stay hydrated!

LITE DISTANCE WILL DO 1 LOOP (3km) FOR EACH RUN

Bike Course / 20kms

The bike will be a 1 loop – 20k  ride. Do note that NUVALI will be implementing it’s SHARE A ROAD policy for all bikers. So just stay in one lane and you will be safe! Please make sure to take PLENTY OF HYDRATION with you. There will be NO WATER STATIONS on the bike course.

LITE DISTANCE WILL MAKE A U-TURN AT THE ROTUNDA (BIG CIRCLE) INSTEAD OF TURNING RIGHT GOING TO MIRIAM COLLEGE (AVIDA PARKWAY).

PARKING / REGISTRATION AREA

Upon entering Nuvali, go past the guard house and just go straight. The event proper will be on your left (other side of the road).

Registration area will be at the BLUE LINE (run route map). It’s easy to spot as it’s right beside the start arch.

The green stars (bike route map) are the exclusive parking slots reserved for DUAMAN participants. Just mention “Duaman Duathlon” to the guard and they will let you in. The one on the left is the EVO LIVING 3 PARKING and the one on the right is the GRAVEL PARKING lot along SOLENAD 3. You may also park at SOLAR PARKING area.

If you’re having trouble finding the event, the best way is to ask the guard for the directions to the parking lots and take it from there. Nuvali guards will be there to assist you.

TIPS! TIPS! TIPS!

As a bonus, we even have additional tips for you

1. COME EARLY FOR RACE KIT CLAIMING

We are expecting over 1450 participants for the Duaman Duathlon. All race kit will be claimed on race day. Please bring your registration stub or if you registered online or via bank deposit, bring a valid government id.

2. GUN START TIME

Gun start time is set at exactly 6:00 am for the LITE Distance and 6:05 am for the LITE Distance. ALL OF YOU will be released in one go (wave). If this is your first time to join a duathlon, it is recommended that you stay at the back and let the fast ones (and those planning to set a p.r. ) go ahead in front.

3. IT’S GOING TO BE HOT SO HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!

There will literally be ZERO shade on the race course so expect it to be really HOT. Don’t forget to keep on hydrating at the aid stations or pour water over your head. Take your time at the aid stations and drink/pour as many as you like. WE HAVE ENOUGH so make sure to drink and hydrate A LOT.

4. WHERE CAN I PARK? IS IT SECURED?

We worked really hard with Nuvali to ensure security at the parking lot and all throughout the event. However, we still strongly advice that you don’t leave any valuables in car your. If it be helped, leave it in the trunk where it is safe from prying eyes.

When in doubt, just ask any of the roving guards on duty. Designated parking areas are indicated above.

5. IT’S MY FIRST TIME! DO YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL TIPS?

Although there is basically nothing more that we can advice you that will make you GO FASTER on race, we do offer the following tips from Coach Andy Leuterio of Alpha Training Systems

Tip #1: Pace conservatively. The 1st run should be enjoyable and let you speak in short sentences. Use it as a “hard” warmup to get you into the rhythm. Ride the bike at a constant cadence, shifting gears as necessary. Keep intensity around 7-8/10 on Rate of Perceived Exertion. Spin easy for the last 5″ to prepare for the final run. On the 2nd run, go for broke as soon as you get your legs back.

Tip #2: Douse your head liberally. It’s effin’ hot.

Tip #3: Practice your transition at least once this week. Do you go “head to toe” (Helmet on, then change shoes?) or “toe to head” (change shoes, then helmet?). Have 2 small bottles of water to douse with in T1 and T2.

Tip #3: Memorize your spot in transition. Don’t be That Guy wandering all over the place looking for his bike. And keep your spot TIDY.

Tip #4: Pay attention on the bike! Stay right except to pass. Even though you think you’re going pretty fast, always assume there’s someone faster coming behind who needs some room on your left.

Tip #5: Make sure you know how to fix a flat. Don’t let this end your race. Sayang naman.

Tip #6: Zip up your suit if there are cameras around. Keep your hands into loose fists, elbows close to the chest, near 90 degrees. Looks much better for the camera, very “Pro”. and don’t slouch on the run. Upright torso, slight forward lean, relaxed shoulders, smile. Don’t grimace. Smiling looks better for the Facebook and instagram photos.

Tip #7: Give a little energy, to get more of the same. Cheer on your fellow racers, thank the volunteers. Loosen up and enjoy the day!

IS THAT IT? WHAT ELSE?

If you trained properly, don’t worry! YOU WILL FINISH THE RACE. Remember that there is no cut off time. Although, like what we always say, wag lang sana abutan ng lunch time. 🙂

Have fun, live every moment, and enjoy the unique Duaman Duathlon experience.

YOU ARE A DUAMAN!
