Participants Enjoy Premium Experience at Inagural KM Duathlon
Singapore, 21 July 2014 – Nearly 400 participants, including Mr Teo Ser Luck, Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry and Mayor, North EastDistrict rose to the challenge of completing the first-ever KM Duathlon – Singapore’s most challenging Duathlon thus far.
Organised by Infinitus Productions, the inaugural KM Duathlon consist of running and cycling over two distances – the KM60 and the KM30 categories. The KM60 saw participants complete a 10km run, followed by a 40km cycle down Changi Coastal Drive, and ending with another 10km run. The KM30 category is half the distance at 5km-20km-5km. Participants could also opt to partner with a buddy for the KM60 Relay.
Held at Changi Exhibition Centre, the intimate race settings meant participants were able to complete their race without much obstruction and achieve a good time. Clifford Scott, age 31, winner of the KM60 (Male) who completed the race in 02:28:53 commented, “This is definitely one of the most challenging race due to the distance and the heat. The key of the race is to pace yourself and keep your heart rate down. It is a very well-organised race, the smaller numbers was great on the bike especially, with lesser cyclists on route, it is thus much
Participants were also treated to a premium pre and post-race experience; where organisers pampered all participants with complimentary full-body massages, chilled towels, light bites and cold beer, in addition to the special delivery of race packs to all participants prior to the race.
“Being an avid endurance athlete, I’ve always yearned for a complete race experience. I put myself in the shoes of a participant and raced today. I am proud to say my team has delivered a premium experience. Other than providing a safe and wonderful experience enroute, the post-race experience also ensured all participants ended the race on a sweet note. I trust participants enjoyed the race as much as I did and will be keen to join us for KM Duathlon again next year!” said Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions, who participated in the relay along with Mr Teo.
