Eight months ago, I realized that I need to do a little extra than the efforts put in for the 2nd edition and hence started working since early Feb 2017 towards Wada Duathlon 3rd Edition.
Every great success is an accumulation of thousands of Ordinary efforts that no one else sees or appreciates…A lot of friends told me that the route was difficult well, if it does not challenge you, It won’t change you. The only thing common between us is, we are athletes’ and we don’t stop when we are tired but we stop when we are done when we crossed the finish line.
I need to thank a lot of my friends, well-wishers and partners to the event…
#NatventureHolidays – Logistics Partners: The Natventure family was of immense help and I want to thank them for helping us for the race.
#OceanWater – Hydration Partners: Hydration is an essential element when you plan a sports event and we appreciate Ocean Water for partnering with us for the 2nd year in the row.
Enerzal – The energy drink by #Enerzal is not an uncommon requirement with the athletes. It helps all the athletes maintain their body salts. They have been with us right from the first edition and ensured that the athletes were taken care of.
#CareFacilitiesManagementServices: Wada Duathlon has been able to keep a no trail policy thanks to CFMS team which cleans all the 14 villages along the route.
#Decathlon and #Tannlines Sport: It’s always pleasure to have Decathlon and Tannlines sport as a prize sponsor.
#Pedalpower – We are indebted to Pedalpower team for helping us with Bike Maintenance Services across the beautiful route.
71 year young Vijay Pednekar finishing a Solo Full Duathlon in style and the best part is he still not know what is Social Media /Strava.
Paralympic athlete Dr.Raju Turkane completed the 40 Km cycling leg.. I need to thank every single Duathlete / participant and their supporters who gave a much need standing ovation in pin drop silence when Sir Raju and Sir Vijay came to collect their medals. That was the best moment of the day… even better than watching the Tiger kill at Bandipur.
It’s always pleasure when you team up with the best folks Roop Betala & Dipesh Gindra
