Press Release | Powerman Embrun welcomes strong elite in first year

09. July 2021 (18:23 Uhr)

Powerman Embrun/France will have a great kick off in the first edition on Sunday, the 11th of July. 

- Embrun, 09-07-2021- 
The race organizer, Team Embrun, has a good field of participants bearing in mind all Covid issues including top duathletes from Europe.
World wide, Powerman is considered to be the pinnacle of duathlon competition and the sport of duathlon as a natural progression for runners and cyclists. To visualize and get the feeling of what is duathlon: It’s Run-Bike -Run.

“Last year Powerman Embrun was canceled at the very last moment due to Covid-19. A very though decision for everyone involved in the organization and of course for all participants” said John Raadschelders, president of the International Powerman Association (I.P.A.). “This weekend, multisport athletes from all across Europe will be able to race in I believe that will be the toughest Powerman Classic Distance in the world. So I would like to say: “If you’re tough enough…Be there!”

“We, the local organizing committee of Powerman Embrun, loved to create this challenging race for all participants” added Seb Fuz, race director of Powerman Embrun. "The run and bike course has some hilly sections but at the finish you will be really able to say: Yes I am a Powerman/ Powerwoman.

Seb continues: “We are also very happy to see Europe ‘s finest elite athletes at the start line in our inaugural year.”
