Frequently Asked Questions

The difficult decision was made following ongoing consultation with the Ministry of Health, the Malaysia Sports Commissioner Office, Perbadanan Putrajaya and the Malaysian Triathlon Association. As a mass participation event, we were advised on Saturday 7th March by the Ministry of Health to postpone Powerman Malaysia 2020. It was vital that we recognise the recent surge in recorded COVID-19 cases and as event organisers, it is our duty to protect the wellbeing of our participants, volunteers, staff, vendors, partners and the general public. As such, we immediately made the decision to postpone the event until 14-15 November 2020.

We hope that the situation with COVID-19 will be resolved soon as we want to ensure that all Powerman athletes have the opportunity to compete in 2020. We have been working closely with Perbadanan Putrajaya on date availability and are pleased to announce that the new date for Powerman Malaysia 2020 is 14-15 November 2020.

We appreciate that you are disappointed about the race postponement; we are too and we regret any inconvenience caused through disruption to travel and other arrangements. Re-scheduling a major event like Powerman at a sought-after venue such as Dataran Putrajaya is a complex undertaking and we recognise that you might not be able to participate in the re-scheduled event on 14 – 15 November 2020. If you are not able to attend Powerman Malaysia on 14 – 15 November, we will soon be launching an online marketplace that will allow you to sell and then transfer your registration to another person. As stated in the Powerman Terms and Conditions, agreed to by all athletes during registration for a Powerman event, we are unable to offer refunds for postponed events. All race entries are automatically transferred to the new event date.

All Powerman, PowerTeens and PowerKids finishers will receive a finisher medal and e-certificate upon successful completion of their race.

Finisher t-shirts will only be provided to Powerman Individual Classic and Individual Short finishers.
