Nakhon Nayok, 19 January 2017 – Since the opening of race registration November last year, Powerman Thailand received continuous buzz and stories over its inaugural instalment in the land of smiles. Despite happening two-hour away from its capital Bangkok, local brands have partnered with the globally recognised race.
In showing their support, two units of Optima Bike worth TBH69,000 each was given away last week, and a grand highlight of an Optima Bike worth TBH99,000 awaits its lucky owner at the lucky draw session in the Powerman Expo this Saturday, 21 January 2017. Moreover, merchandises and products by Optima, CP-Meiji High Protein, Dever Energy Gel, 100PLUS, The EmQuartier Shopping Complex, as well as complimentary entries to Powerman Indonesia and Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships in Malaysia, will also be in the list of giveaways. Participants are required to register and be present at the expo before 4:00PM to be eligible for this draw.
Iskandar Shahril, Managing Director of E-Plus Entertainment Productions (Thailand) Co. Ltd., described that the first Powerman race in Thailand backed by major corporate supporters showed its significance locally. “Powerman is a well-received duathlon race around the world. The support we receive shows its potential to be a major sport in Thailand, and possibly grow and hold the title as the prominent race in the future. I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to our sponsors and supporters for their unwavering support.”
Among the Powerman Elites participating for the race includes world no. 3 male elite Thomas Bruins from Australia, world no. 5 female elite Airi Sawada from Japan, and Mandana Dehghan Manshadi from Iran.
“Powerman Thailand will kick-off the Powerman World Series calendar for 2017. The new addition to the campaign will elevate the industry’s appeal and attract the looming multi-sport athletes’ market in the region. The growing number of host cities around the globe annually will also be a substantial factor in propelling Powerman’s races globally,” said John Raadschelders, President of International Powerman Association.
On Sunday, top three race winners for each age group category will also receive with a complimentary slot to participate at the upcoming Powerman Asia Duathlon Championships – Malaysia on 5 March 2017 at Putrajaya, and a special entry price to contend in the Powerman World Championships in Zofingen, Switzerland. This will be part of the package in addition to the trophy and cash prize.
