Calling all athletes and triathlon enthusiasts! Get ready to embark on a journey of endurance and excitement as the 29th edition of the Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT) makes its triumphant return on 19 November 2023. Known as “The Race of Legends,” this iconic event promises a thrilling experience like no other.
The Ultimate Triathlon Challenge
The Laguna Phuket Triathlon holds the distinction of being Asia’s longest-standing triathlon event. It’s not your ordinary race; it’s a test of skill and endurance. The race features a unique distance that includes a 1.8K swim, a 55K bike ride, and a challenging 12K run. This demanding course will take you through the breathtaking tropical landscapes of the renowned Laguna Phuket resort destination and the picturesque local communities in the northern part of Phuket Island.
Cash Prizes for the Pros in You
Breaking down barriers, the Laguna Phuket Triathlon now offers cash prizes for both aspiring pros and seasoned athletes. For the first time ever, all Thai and non-Thai athletes who aspire to compete at a professional level can vie for cash prizes. Simply select the “Elite Category” during registration and compete like the pros, instead of registering in the age group category.
Pre and Post Race Experiences
Your LPT journey doesn’t start and end with the race. This year, a range of pre and post-race experiences are being offered to enhance your overall experience. Kickstart your journey with an Open Water Practice Swim hosted by TriHub on 18 November 2023, at 7:00 AM. Prepare your body and mind for the ultimate challenge.
Beyond race day, enjoy a variety of engaging activities, including a relaxing recovery yoga session, a sumptuous breakfast at the farm-to-table restaurant Open Kitchen, and an adrenaline-pumping Muay Thai boxing show. Don’t miss the Lifestyle Night Market on 18 – 25 November, right in the heart of Laguna Phuket, where you can soak up the vibrant atmosphere.
