Course Maps for the DURIANMAN® Triathlon has been released! (For better quality maps, go to Course Overview)
The 1.5KM point-to-point cross channel swim will be the most challenging leg for the DURIANMAN® Triathlon. Athletes will have to cross the Pakiputan Channel from Sasa, Davao City to Brgy. Caliclic, Samal. Even with the support of boats, jetskis, and kayaks (not to mention the 1.5km buoy lines on both sides), it could still be a difficult swim depending on the weather on race day.
The 40KM bike course takes the athletes along the Circumferential Road of the Island Garden City of Samal. There will be short manageable climbs throughout the course, with fast, downhill portions. Athletes will be able to enjoy the breeze as well as the breathtaking view of the sea.
Finally, the athletes will run 10KM in an out-and-back course from Club Samal. With the summer sun up high, athletes will have to be prepared for the heat as portions of the course are unshaded.
