Registrations expected to flood in for Duathlon

The Cambodia Triathlon Federation is preparing to host its third Duathlon event, which this year will be titled the Samdech Techo Hun Sen Cup, at Diamond Island on June 1.

During a press conference at the Ministry of Information, TFC secretary general Gnin Panha told reporters that the dual-discipline race had already received approximately 300 registrations from various athletics clubs and associations, with another 300 expected to sign up soon.

Meanwhile, TFC president Kong Rithy Chub noted that their original maximum number of participants had been set at 400.

“We’ve got about 100 organising staff members, so it will be alright,” he added.

The U19 category for both boys and girls will feature a run of 2.5 kilometres, a cycle ride of 10km and then another run of 2.5km.

The 18-40 class for men and women will have a 5km run, a 21km ride and then a 2.5km run. The over-40s men’s race will be competed over the same distances as the U19 legs.
