(11/18/2011)

The sixth running of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon is now sets for Sunday, June 24, 2012 with registration now open on-line at [www.balitriathlon.com] .

With registration growing each year, the race dubbed the “Triathlon for the Soul” attracted over 700 participants in 2011 in the Olympic Distance event, the shorter sprint distance and the 5 km run.

Sponsored by Indonesia’s leading fiber optic Internet provider BIZNET Networks, the race will get underway at  early dawn with a swim in Jimbaran Bay, followed by a bicycle race down the Nusa Dua Peninsula, ending with a foot race through the village of Jimbaran. The Olympic distance is comprised of a 1.5-kilometer swim; a 42-kilometer bike race and concludes with a 10 kilometer run. The Sprint Distance course covers a route that is only half that of the Olympic event.

The race continues to receive widespread support from the island of Bali and its surrounding communities of Jimbaran and Nusa Dua, traversed by the racers. In addition to the invaluable main title sponsorship by BIZNET Networks, the race has a long-standing record of support from the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, InterContinental Bali Resort and AYANA Resort and Spa Bali. In addition, the Bali Hotels Association, an organization representing all starred hotels on the island, has also given enthusiastic support to the race, which has won numerous international race and destination awards.

Over the past six years interest and participation by Indonesian athletes has grown dramatically reflecting the surge in interest in cycling and running in Indonesia generally. Beginning national participants, opting for the shorter “sprint distance” event or entering as a member of a corporate team challenge, oftentimes return in subsequent year to participate as individual athletes in the fully-fledgedOlympic distance triathlon.

Improved Bike Course

Based on detailed post-race surveys conducted among 2011 race participants, the 2012 bike course will reflect a number of significant changes to improve flow and overall safety on the bike and running courses.

Advancing the starting time for the race in 2012 and working with the regional and provincial authorities in Bali, plans are under way to offer a more sanitized course with sections of the course closed to vehicular traffic during the race.

The bike course this year will forsake the busy side streets of Ungasan in favor of multiple circuits through the Nusa Dua Complex, where racers will urged on by the thousands of tourist staying a luxury hotels located along the route.

“The new bike course will be a flat and fast course guaranteed to offer new excitement to the race next year,” explained Fathur Rozi, Race Director for the 6th BIZNET Bali International Triathlon.

Returning Partners

Returning to support the race are our loyal partners from Jenggala Keramik who will provide all winners with their custom-designed ceramic trophies and Jari Menari providing post-race massage to event participants.

BIMC Hospital continues to supply a team of dedicated medical team providing emergency medical assistance to the race, as required. In 2012 BIMC Hospital will open have “both ends” of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon covered with the opening of their new medical facility inside the Nusa Dua Complex serving the outer limits of the bike course while their hospital at Simpang Siur in Kuta provide a state-of-the-art medical facility in close proximity to the start and finish line of the race.
