(5/6/2009)

There's less than two months to go until the 3rd MRA Bali International Triathlon at Jimbaran Bay on Sunday, June 28, 2009.

Registrations remain on target for both Indonesian and international athletes signing up to participate in an event named the "best triathlon destination" by Competitor Magazine.

On race day, individual participants and corporate relay teams of three will set off on an 1.5 km swim in Jimbaran Bay, followed by a 40 km bike race down Bali's Ungasan peninsula and Nusa Dua, and finishing witha 10 km running foot race through the village of Jimbaran.

This year's course will widen its footprint on Jimbaran Beach with the swim starting in front of the fabled Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay and swimmers coming ashore at the adjacent Intercontinental Resort Bali where they will transition to bikes for the next segment of the race. In order to handle the growing number of participants coming each year to the Bali event.

Intercontinental Bali Resort has joined as a major hotel sponsor of the triathlon.

As in year's past, the Coconut Grove in front of the Four Season's will serve as race central with refreshments, live musical entertainment and a lively bazaar on offer throughout the morning to keep spectators occupied while waiting for the racers to sprint across the beach side finish line.

Sign Up Now and Start Training

Race participants will receive high quality race t-shirts, competitor swim caps, a pre-race high-carbohydrate dinner at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, invitations to a post race lunch and party, discounted tours and watersports activities during their stay in Bali, and special rates at Bali hotels. Prizes from Bali hotels and other businesses will be presented with a custom-made trophy for each age and gender category donated by Jenggala Ceramics.

Those not prepared to join the triathlon can sign up for a 5 km fun run held simultaneously with the main event.

BIMC Hospital will be on hand, providing a field hospital and ambulance support, on race day, while Jari Menari Massage will be soothing racers with free massages.

Star Athletes to Return

The 2008 overall winner, Australian pro Luke McKenzie, and athlete partrner, Amanda Balding, will return to Bali to join this year's race. Organizers also expect the 2008 women's champion, Rachael Gaudry, to return, as well.
