An activity that is getting a lot of attention lately is Duathlon.What is a duathlon?
A duathlon is a competition that is composed of running and biking. The usual format for a duathlon is run-bike-run, meaning you start with a run, then transition to the bike, then transition back to running again. Your time starts when you start the race, and finishes when you cross the finish line. This means that the time it takes you to switch from running to cycling and back again is part of your race time. In the Philippines while a lot of people are into Triathlon its really mot an easy sport to commit too the trickiest part is finding a decent swimming pool to practice in.
So some are getting into Duathlon instead.
