In 2013, Powerman Zofingen is going to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The history of the Powerman, the most important duathlon event worldwide, taking place in the heart of Switzerland since 1989, is full of drama and emotions. Only in Zofingen do the world’s best triathletes, duathletes and athletes of other endurance disciplines compete in the same race. To finish the Powerman Zofingen at least once is a must in the career of every longdistance enthusiast. Some finishers even claim that the Powerman is more demanding than the Ironman. Also therefore the international triathlon union (ITU) accomplishes the long distance world championships already 2013 for the 6th time in Zofingen. In Zofingen quality comes before quantity. We welcome you at the Powerman Zofingen 2013!
