Duathlon meet on June 8

Life is Calling, in association with Electronics City Industrial Association, will organise the second edition of the Duathlon event on June 8 in Electronics City.

In the competitive category, the participants first get to run 2.5 Kms and then cycle 18 Kms and then run again for 2.5 Km. Altogether they need to run for 5 Kms and bike for 18 Kms in the run/bike/run format.

There are both individual and team categories. In team category two participants can form a team of which one team member can run and the other team member can bike the distance. The first participant will be carrying a timing chip on his chest BIB and the same bib needs to be passed on to the partner once he/she completes the activity. 

The complete timing of the run and bike will be recorded in this automated timing chip and will provide accurate results post the event.

There is also a 10K and 5K run for individuals who are only interested in running. The 10K run will be competitive and the participants will be provided timing certificate and finisher’s medal post-race.

Attractive prizes are on offer for the duathlon category with the first-place winner in the individual men and women category  receiving a  bicycle from Trek and Firefox. 

Last day for registration is on May 31, 2014. People interested may log on to www.lifeiscalling-sports.com or call 98807 44332.
