PHUKET, 6 February 2018: Organisers of the Phuket Laguna Triathlon have shifted the race dates to avoid a conflict with other events on the popular tourist island.
In a letter to participants and media, Monday, the organisers confirmed the two-day event will now be hosted 17 to 18 November, a week ahead of the former dates 24 to 25 November.
The triathlon now in its 25th year is expected to attract a record turn out. This year there are three races over the two-day event.
The 25th Phuket Laguna Triathlon is scheduled for Sunday 18 November, covering the signature race distance of 1.8km (swim), 50km (bike) and 12km (run).
For the first time a third event, the inaugural Phuket Laguna ‘25 for 25’ Sprint, will also take place, 18 November, with a sprint distance of 25km swim, bike and run combined.
An early bird registration fee is available until 5 March.
Athletes registered for the 25th Laguna Phuket Triathlon, who are 25 years old in 2018 (born 1 January – 31 December 1993), also get an additional 5% discount on the entry fee.
