Bigger & Better: BIZNET Bali International Triathlon 2012

Important Changes at BIZNET Bali International Triathlon to Enhance Safety and Participants’ Overall Experience


(4/7/2012)

With a little more than two months remaining until the sixth edition of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon, preparations are in full swing for Bali’s hosting of three simultaneous events - the Olympic Distance Event, half-triathlon of 5-kilometer fun run to be held on Sunday, June 24, 2012.

With bookings keeping pace with last year’s record attendance, the 2012 edition of the event will see many changes to accommodate the growing popularity of a sport that sees individual and teams of athletes compete in a sport that combines swimming, cycling and running.

Course Changes

One of the most evident changes in the 2012 event will be changes in the races routes.
  • Relocation of the transition area to the Bali InterContinental Resort will remove the narrow and sometime crowded feeder roads to the beach. Cyclists and runners will now leave the transitional area as they emerge directly onto the Jalan Uluwatu thoroughfare that connects to the Ngurah Rai Bypass highway.
  • In cooperation with government authorities from the Badung Regency, local administration across south Bali and police officials one-half of the Bypass between the Jimbaran intersection (McDonalds/Kentucky Fried Chicken) and the back access road to Nusa Dua will be closed to regular traffic. Vehicle traffic traveling between Nusa Dua and the Airport will be channeled into a two-way flow using the west lane of the highway. Cyclists will no longer travel through the crowded roadways of the Ungasan Peninsula.

Transition Area

Both the starting line and the transition area will be located in a new area, adjacent to the Bali Intercontinental Resort Bali. The large field located between the Resort and the Spa offers a large and attractive area for athlete transitions, vendors area, food and beverage stands and awards ceremonies.

BIZNET NETWORKS

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.

BIZNET will be providing free Internet services at the transition area as well as advanced monitoring of the race in real time.

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. 


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 professionals providing emergency medical assistance to the race. In 2012 BIMC Hospital will have “both ends” of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon covered with the opening of their new medical facility inside the Nusa Dua Complex thereby serving both ends of the outer limits of the race course via 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.
