Elephant House sponsors first-ever Duathlon
Elephant House F5 recently signed on as the main sponsor of the
first-ever Sri Lankan Duathalon, a run/cycle/run sporting event that was
held on February 14, 2016, at the Spinner Sports Centre in Madiwela.
Held on Valentine's Day 2016, it promoted the need for physical activity
for loved ones, with many kids and even families taking part, in
addition to top national athletes.
The Elephant House F5-sponsored Duathalon 2016 featured over 125
participants of all ages and skill levels, with more than 200 spectators
cheering them on. This event was organised by WrooM Cycling, and Spinner
Cyclist Cafe and Bike Fit Lab.
Also important, Elephant House F5 supported Sri Lanka's first-ever
Duathalon to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle, with many
different communities, and a large number of people, positively
influenced to take part in cycling and running.
A Duathalon is a sporting competition that comprises three
activities. First running, then cycling and, last, running once again.
This event is growing in popularity worldwide since many already know
how to cycle and run and can train without specialised equipment or
venues. The Elephant House F5-sponsored Duathalon 2016, specifically,
featured three major categories: Elite, with 5km of running, 25km of
cycling and 5km of running; Amateur, with 2km of running, 10km of
cycling and 2km of running; and Kids, with 500m of running, 3km of
cycling and 500m of running.
