(The Philippine Star) - August 28, 2015 - 10:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The scenic Alviera in Porac, Pampanga welcomes back participants from around the country for another unique duathlon racing experience as it hosts the Bike King Duathlon Sept.  27,  starting at 6 a.m.

Organized by Bike King headed by Raul Cuevas, the race covers a 6 K run-60 K bike-4 K run for seasoned duathletes as well as a shorter 3K run-20 K bike-2K run for the less competitive participants.

For the initial 6K or 3K run, participants will make a right when exiting Alviera and then run 3 K/1.5 K out. Upon reaching the halfway mark, they must go back to the transition area inside Alviera.

For the bike leg at the SCTEX, the best bike course for duathlons with its smooth yet challenging terrain, bike leg participants must make their way to the Floridablanca exit and back to Porac to complete the 20K loop (3 loops for long distance, 1 loop for short distance).

Up for grabs in the event supported by Alviera, Aboitiz, TIMEX, NLEX-SCTEX Cycling, AboitizPower, WeatherPhilippines, Sante Barley, Orbea, Fontana, SwimBikeRun.ph, Multisport, RaceDay, SPIN.ph and The Philippine Star are cash prizes of P10,000, P6,000 and P4,000 for the Top 3 elite male and Top 3 elite female finishers. Also at stake are medals and gift items for all Top 3 male and female category winners.

In addition to recreational facilities that spectators can use, the SandBox in Alviera will host the awarding ceremony as well as an Event Expo and food and beverage stands. Post-race recovery services at the venue will be provided by Sante Impact Systems (SIMS).

Alviera is a 1,100 hectare master-planned development by Ayala Land in partnership with Leonio Land. It is envisioned to become the regional growth center of Central Luzon complete with residential options, country club, shopping and dining choices, as well as educational and business facilities for a holistic living experience. The SandBox outdoor adventure park is its pioneer attraction and will be the venue for more exciting events this year.

Registration for the duathlon is ongoing online at BikeKingPhilippines.com. The entry fee includes event shirt,  finisher’s medal, racing equipment (including timing chip and race bib) and a post-race meal. Registration is until Aug. 31. The day before the race – Sept. 26 – participants are welcome to pick up their race kits at the Fontana Leisure Park in Clark, and at the Alveo sales office at Bonifacio Highstreet, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
