The Duaman Duathlon is the second leg of the SBR.ph Tri Series and is our perennial biggest event. We designed both distances of the Duaman Duathlon to be short enough for the newbies and lung-busting enough for the seasoned duathlete. The Duaman Duathlon was the biggest recorded duathlon in Philippine history. Garnering over 1,500 participants from all walks of life and varying skill levels. The DUAMAN DUATHLON 2018 is currently the BIGGEST recorded duathlon event in the country.

F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)

When can I claim my race kit? 

All race kits will be available on race day. Optional race kit claiming in advance at the SBR.ph Headquarters in Quezon City.

Ack! I lost my registration slip! How can I claim my kit?

Please bring a valid government id with picture.

What’s inside my race kit? Your race kit will contain the following :

  • 1 Race Bib (Your race number)
  • 1 Bike Sticker
  • 1 Helmet Sticker
  • 4 Safety Pins
  • 1 Wrist Band


For the relay, your race kit will contain the same except it will have 12 safety pins and 2 or 3 race bibs and wrist bands. (Depending on the number of athlete’s per team)

For a faster transition, and if you don’t want to ruin your expensive tri suit, we will have race belts available at the SBR.ph booth.

How come there are so many stickers?! What will I do with the wrist band?

The wrist band should be worn at all times during the race.

What about the timing chip?

The timing chip can be claimed at the timing booth of the registration area.

Extra Security!

Your (and your bike) security is our #1 concern. So as an extra security measure, please be reminded of the following :

  • No one will be allowed to enter the transition area except for participants with the official wrist band.
  • After the race, no one will be allowed to get their bikes UNTIL THE LAST BIKER leaves transition for his/her final run.
  • The number on your bike MUST MATCH with the number on your wrist tag, race bib, helmet sticker, and body marking.
  • What if I lose my wrist band? You will NOT BE ALLOWED to exit the transition area with your bike unless you can show proper identification.


RUN 1 and 2 (6km FULL / 3km LITE) 

  • RUN 1 will be a CLOCKWISE loop (2 loops for FULL and 1 loop for LITE)
  • RUN 2 will be a COUNTER CLOCKWISE loop (1 loop both for FULL and LITE)

– from CAMP N go straight and then turn left at the intersection.
– FULL distance will do 2 loops, LITE distance will do one.
– each run loop is 3kms.
– there will be aid stations along the run course.
– the run course i relatively flat until you turn left. That is where the hills will begin.

BIKE (20km FULL / 13km LITE)

– transition will be at CAMP N
– after transition, proceed to the other side of the run course towards Miriam Collage (you will do the lollipop route)
– after finishing the loop, LITE participants will turn right and head back to transition. FULL participants must turn left and do another loop.
– there will be NO aid stations along the bike course.
– the bike course is a mix of rolling hills (uphill, downhill, and flats)
– we advice everyone to TAKE IT EASY AND BE CAREFUL on the downhill sections.
– for the safety of everyone, the bike course will be longer than the published distance. The u-turn has been extended to a farther distance as originally planned. This is because to anticipate the speed of the bikers going downhill and give them enough room to slow down prior to the u turn.


Upon entering Nuvali, go past the guard house and just go straight all the way to the first guard house. Turn right at the roundabout and turn left at the second exit.

From Nuvali Blvd, go straight all the way until W. Diversity Avenue and then turn right. Turn right again at  the guard house and just go straight all the way to the race venue. Parking will be AFTER the start / finish arc and also along Ecology Avenue (right side if your coming from CAMP N

Parking is on a first come / first served basis.


Parking at the race central is limited. For those who have drivers, have then drop you off at CAMP N and then they can park at the following areas.

Those who wants to warm up, you can also ride to the venue from the parking area. A bit of the workout but a good warmup!


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.

As a bonus, we even have additional tips for you


We are expecting over a thousand 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.


Gun start time is set at exactly 6:00 am for the LITE Distance and 6:15 am for the FULL 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.


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.


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.


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!


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.
