Bali International Triathlon, LLC has opened registration for the 2nd Annual Bali International Triathlon to be held on the island of Bali on June 29, 2008 at Jimbaran Bay, Bali.
The Olympic distance course, consisting of a 1.5 kilometer swim in the warm waters of Jimbaran Bay, a 40 kilometer bike course through the Nusa Dua area, and a 10 kilometer run through Jimbaran Village ending with a beach finish, will provide participating athletes with both a challenging and scenic race. As with last year's event, athletes can compete in both individual age group categories or through three-person relay teams. A 5 kilometer "Fun Run" will also take place through Jimbaran Village.
Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, one of the leading race sponsors, is offering a prize package consisting of a seven day, six night stay in one of their world famous luxury villas for both the overall first male and first female finishers. Four Seasons Resort will also provide a pre-race athlete reception and dinner as well as post-race food for athletes. Awards will also be given to the first three triathlon finishers in each age group category, and the top male and female finishers of the 5K Fun Run. All triathletes will be provided with high quality race T-shirts, entrance to the pre-race party, and unique finisher's award handcrafted by local Balinese artists.
"Our goal is to repeat the huge success of last year's inaugural triathlon. In the process, we hope to promote tourism on the island and provide a quality race that will attract both professional and top age group athletes," says Robb Strom, one of the principals involved in the organization of the race. Race organizers also include Brennan Lindner of Generic Events in Los Angeles, and Bali Discovery Tours in Bali.
Participating athletes are expected to come from all over the world to take advantage of this unique destination race. While in Bali, they can take advantage of the wide range of activities available, including scuba diving, elephant riding, white water river rafting, parasailing, and jet skiing. Bali is famous for its spa properties, and athletes will once again be treated to post-race massage by local Balinese therapists.
Special hotel and tour packages for athletes and their families can be arranged by contacting Bali Discovery Tours.
