The history of the Powerman Zofingen

For more than 30 years the Powerman Zofingen has been the biggest duathlon event. The classic is the undisputed number 1 in the international duathlon competition calendar. What began in 1989 as the idea of a small team is still alive more than 30 years later.

It is the athletes who make Zofingen a classic in tradition. They come to Zofingen every year from all over the world. The focus is on you and duathlon. To make this possible, more than 600 volunteers are needed every year. With their cordiality they are the best business card. Be it the helpers on race day or the members of the organising committee, who advance the planning and organisation during the year.

Together the Zofingen “Powerteam” tries to develop something new every year. In the anniversary year, a number of attractions await us, including a world record attempt for the Guinness Book of Records.

“Let us remember together some of the great names, achievements and dramas of the past 30 years. On September 20, 2020 we will know then who will write the newest chapter in history.”

Stefan Ruf, President Powerman Zofingen
