The European Triathlon Union (ETU) and International Powerman Association (IPA) are delighted with the early registration for the 2014 European Long Distance and Sprint Distance Duathlon Championships.
This unique joint event, now in its third year, is held at Horst aan de Maas and combines the European Long Distance and Sprint Distance Duathlon Championships in a thrilling festival of duathlon.
The number of registrations for this year has already surpassed last year’s total, which has thrilled Powerman CEO John Raadschelders.
He said: “We are very happy with the registrations so far with over 500. Many athletes have used our early bird offer and there is still time to take advantage of this up until 28th February. After that, the race fee will increase by 20€.
"I encourage all athletes and National Federations to come to Horst and experience our fantastic event.”
Raadschelders confirmed that some changes have been made to the course at Horst, particularly on the 20km bike loop which has been added to the Sprint course.
The European Long Distance Duathlon Championships is a 15km run (6 laps)/ 60km bike (3 laps) /7.5km run (3 laps) course through the streets of Horst and is open to Elite athletes and Age Groups.
