Dumaguete mountain bikers are expected to dominate a 38.5-kilometer duathlon on July 4. {{more}}

The 1st L.G. Sinco duathlon, to be held on Sunday, July 4, will be one of the highlights of the 61st Founding Anniversary of Foundation University.

The fun race will start at 5:30 a.m. with a 2.1 kilometer run around the Robinson’s Mall Dumaguete. Paultom Paras, FU sports coordinator, said the contestants will actually be running three rounds of the Robinson’s Mall.

After running, they will ride their bicycles and pedal for 35 kilometers passing through the Rizal Boulevard, then on to barangays Looc, Piapi and Bantayan. The bikers will turn left heading for barangay Camanjac and take the trail through the Dumaguete City Wastewater Treatment Plant and head off to the mountain barangay of Calabnugan in the town of Sibulan.

They will then connect to barangays Balili, Cambucad, Pulangbato and Palinpinon in Valencia. Upon reaching the City Limit in barangay Palinpinon, the bikers will turn towards barangay Candau-ay and come back to the Robinson’s Mall Dumaguete.

This route, Paras said, will treat participants to the green and unspoiled hilly environment in the outskirts of Dumaguete.

Upon reaching Robinson’s Mall, the participants will again run two rounds of the Mall complex, to complete the 38.5 kilometer distance.

This route will be familiar to participants of last November’s Dumaguete Adventure Marathon because most of the route covered by the bikers is the same route of the DAM participants, Paras said.

The contestants will be divided into five categories: beginners, master, veterans, executive and women.

Those interested to join the duathlon may register with the Foundation University Institute of Youth Sports for Peace (IYSPEACE) at the Foundation University North Campus.
