VALTTERI BOTTAS DUATHLON
Valtteri Bottas Duathlon powered by Tunturi was held in picturesque Pajulahti scenery on Sunday, 18 August 2019. BIG thanks to all the competitors, partners, the event team and the students of Pajulahti and of course the record audience who made the sunny day even more amazing! Next year’s date will be locked during the fall and registration will open as soon as possible! Stay tuned – see you next year!
Let´s do GOOD together!
Valtteri Bottas Duathlon and Westpro4U have started co-operation to develop and support positive growth for children and young people. Collaboration is supported by both similar values and the desire to have a better tomorrow. This year’s charity is dedicated to youngsters in Nastola. Westpro4U and Westpro donated € 20,000 to a charity in partnership with Valtteri Bottas Duathlon. The amount increased by € 5,000 as a result of the time outs on race day. The City of Lahti youth services and youth work in the Nastola region receive the amount donated and it is allocated to enable mobile youth work, to buy their own car.
Environmental issues were taken a step further with our partners this year.
– We received a convincing list of actions for the environment. There are, for example, ecological electricity and biodegradable containers, food waste is minimized, all materials are reused or recycled wherever possible. This year, together with Loiste Energia, we reduced the carbon footprint of the event by 8,500 kg CO2e. The emission rights were acquired with Co2Esto Oy, says Anna Komu, who is responsible for the event’s partnerships.
We reserve the right to make changes.
Where I come from has always meant a lot to me. Nastola provides excellent opportunities for sports, and the location is excellent. I am happy to show where I’m from. I appreciate my roots.
For a couple of years now, I’ve been thinking about a sports event of my own. My own way of life is athletic, and I am a big fan of sports. The event was chosen to be an off-road duathlon, and I definitely wanted it to take place in my home town, Nastola. The aim is to create a nice event with a relaxed atmosphere – not forgetting a decent competitive spirit. It would be great if formula one fans and people from Finland and abroad came to see where I’m from. Sports is such a great thing that I hope that this race, too, will encourage people to exercise more. The race will be a family event.
– Valtteri Bottas
