Embarking on its third successful year, the MRA Bali International Triathlon will return to Jimbaran Bay where it has become a regular fixture on the international sporting calendar. The only annual triathlon event held on the popular island resort, the MRA Bali International Triathlon is sponsored by the MRA Group of companies and generously supported by the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay.
In 2008 the MRA Bali International Triathlon attracted more than 350 athletes and 2000 spectators from around the world, numbers the organizers hope to duplicate in 2009 due to the growing popularity of the sport both in the region and internationally. The Olympic distance event held in Bali includes an 1.5 km swim in Jimbaran Bay, a 40 km bike race down the island's southernmost peninsula and a 10 km run through the traditional Balinese communities surrounding the bay. As in years past, the race will be open to both individual athletes and corporate relays comprised of teams of three. A simultaneous 5km fun run will also be held during the event headquartered at the transition area on the beach in Jimbaran where food, drink, a merchandise bazaar and live music will all be on offer throughout the morning of June 28th.
Complete race information and registration on line are available at [www.balitriathlon.com].
