(5/25/2009)

With just 5 weeks left until the 3rd MRA Bali International Triathlon on Sunday, June 28, 2009, organizers report that athletes registering for the individual and group events are slightly ahead of last year, when compared on a year-on-year basis.

Now a permanent fixture on Bali's sport's calendar, the MRA Bali International Triathlon is comprised of a 1.5 km swim in Jimbaran Bay, a 40 km bike race down Bali's southernmost peninsula and finishing with a 10 km road race through the village of Jimbaran. Held simultaneously with the triathlon is a 5 km fun run.

Reflecting the growing interest in triathlon in Asia and Indonesia, there is a marked increase in regional and domestic registrations this year. Indonesian swimming icon Richard Sambera will return to Bali this June, competing as an individual triathlete. Sambera, editor of Men's Fitness (Indonesia) and FHM (Indonesia), will use the race to bring to a close a series of articles on training and preparing for a triathlon featured in Men's Fitness' recent issues.

Following Sambera to Bali will be a number of Indonesian national athletes competing as corporate team relay members. 2007 Southeast Asia Game Silver Medalist Andy Wibowo and national swimming star Ira Kurniawan will travel to Bali together with champion cyclist Nurhayati and marathon runner Maria Lawalata. The Bali race is also promises to lure back a number of the athletes who participated in the 2008 Asian Beach games.

Last year's overall winner, Luke McKenzie, and his partner-fellow triathlete Amanda Balding will fly in to Bali from sporting engagements in Tokyo to join the 2009 Bali race. McKenzie's and Balding's appearance in Bali is made possible through the generous support of Garuda Indonesia.

A special festival will be held at Race Central on the morning of June 28th at Coconut Grove Beach, opposite the Four Seasons Resort in Jimbaran. The Four Seasons in cooperation with the Intercontinental Bali Resort are the main hotel sponsors for this year's event. The festival, running throughout the morning of the race, will include live music, games, food and beverage outlets, commercial stands and free massages from Jari Menari

Registered 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 water sports 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.

Also joining as a major sponsor this year is Counterpain - the popular analgesic ointment produced by Bristoil-Meyers.

And, as in years past, BIMC Hospital will be providing field hospital services for the race.
