(2/20/2010)

The organizers of the 4th Annual MRA Bali International Triathlon have announced that this year's event will offer athletes an opportunity to participate in a sprint distance race.

To be held on June 20, 2010, this year's race will provide athletes the chance to race either an Olympic distance race, (1,500 meter swim, 40 kilometer bike and 10 kilometer run), or a shorter Sprint distance race (500 meter swim, 20 kilometer bike and 5 kilometer run). Sprint distance athletes will begin in a separate wave, commencing within 30 minutes after the start of the main Olympic distance race. The shorter sprint distance will be open to both individual and 3-member team participation.

Both categories will feature trophies handcrafted by Bali's renowned Jenggala Ceramics for each age group category winners, as well as a variety of other fabulous prizes. As in past years, all athletes will receive special t-shirts, finisher's medals, and invitations to attend both a VIP pre-race party a "high carbohydrate" pasta party catered by race sponsor Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay.

The Four Seasons Resort and InterContinental Bali Resort - both located on Jimbaran Bay have combined forces as supporting sponsors of Bali's only annual international triathlon event.

"Our title sponsor, the MRA Group, suggested that we include a Sprint distance this year to increase participation by those athletes who may be attempting a triathlon for the first time, or who are more comfortable racing a shorter distance" said Robb Strom, one of the race organizers. "We loved the idea and recently worked out the details," continued Strom.

The MRA Bali International Triathlon was recently named one of the 100 best races around the world in the March 2010 issue of Triathlete magazine and one of the 10 best vacation triathlons in the world.

Athletes participating in this year's race, as in past races, will come from all over the world to take advantage of this unique destination race. While in Bali, they can partake of a wide range of activities, including scuba diving, elephant riding, white water river rafting, para sailing, and jet skiing. Bali is famous for its spa properties, and athletes will be treated to free post-race massages by local Balinese therapists.

A limited number of discounted hotel rooms and packages for athletes and their families are available through race sponsors Four Seasons Resort and Intercontinental Bali Resort.

Further information concerning these packages and the MRA Bali International Triathlon race can be found at [Bali Triathlon Website].
