(2/3/2007)

Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay will act as host-venue for the 1st annual Bali International Triathlon to be held on June 24, 2007. This Olympic distance event will be the first international-caliber triathlon ever held in Bali. A unique race that will combine a challenging course of swimming, cycling and running within the dramatic setting of Bali; the start and finish line for the Triathlon will be at the world-renowned Four Seasons Resort.

The event is expected to attract a large number of spectators from around the world in additional to "corporate challenge" teams from around the region who will run the race in 3 man/woman relays.

On Saturday June 23rd, the day before the race, the Four Season Resort will serve be the meeting venue for a pre-race meeting and a optional unique traditional blessing of the athletes and their bikes on the beach-side Coconut Grove. Later, that same evening, the athletes will return to the romantic beach-side setting for a high carbohydrate Pre-Race Dinner, designed and prepared exclusively for the occasion by the Four Seasons' world-acclaimed chefs.

Four Seasons has also designated one of the Resort's elegant Private Estates as an office and "race-central" for the duration of the event. Located just 50 meters from the beach and the official start of the race, the palatial villa is screened from the outside world by a Balinese wall, flowering shrubs and mature trees.

Working in close cooperation with Bali's Police authorities and members of the local Balinese community, the Four Season's finely-tuned security team will be in charge of the transition area.

Bless this Bike

Spiritualism dominates every aspect of daily life on the Hindu island of Bali and, even in the grounds of international five-star hotels, daily rituals necessitating offerings and prayers take place to secure harmony, balance and protection from evil. To this end, Four Seasons Resort will be arranging a 'Prayasita' bike blessing as well as a 'Majaya Jaya' ceremony to bless and ensure the spiritual protection of all the participants. A 'Pemangku' lay priest will conduct the ceremony, using special offerings including fruit, yellow coconut juice, grains of rice, sandalwood powder and young coconut leaves tied with white thread and Chinese coins.

The Resort will also be providing refreshments, in the form of bottled water and fresh fruit, to the race participants, and while catering for up to 300 VIP guests and spectators with a tantalizing choice of gastronomic delights. The Resort's beach restaurant, PJ's, will be the dedicated seaside venue for the post-event Awards Social Lunch, which will be served between 11 am and 2 pm on June 24th, complete with traditional entertainment presented by a Balinese music ensemble.

Join the Race Stay at the Four Seasons

In additional to special race packages for triathlon participants and their families, the Four Seasons has generously offered a 3-day, 2-night packages in a One-Bedroom Villa at its Jimbaran Bay Resort to the first athlete to finish the race. Hidden within frangipani-scented gardens on a gentle hillside, enhanced by stunning views of the bay, each of the spacious thatched-roof Balinese villas features a private garden, plunge pool, an open-sided living and dining area, an air-conditioned sleeping pavilion, and a bathing area complete with an oversized soaking bathtub.

The Race

The event will comprise a 1.5-kilometre swim in the warm waters of Jimbaran bay; a 40-kilometre bike along paved roads to Nusa Dua, looping back to Jimbaran; and a 10-kilometre mostly-flat run on paved roads through Jimbaran and Kedonganan villages, ending with a beach finish at the Four Seasons Resort Jimbaran Bay.
