The Laguna Phuket Triathlon is probably the longest running triathlon in South East Asia. The “race of legends” started in 1994 and can boast a remarkable list of triathlon stars on their winners list. The November event was a welcome season closer cum holiday for the invited pro athletes.
Besides it’s unique 1.8km swim / 55km bike / 12km run distance and the challenging hilly start of the bike, it was the wild after-party that made it a must-do event on the regional race calendar.
From 2010 to 2012 Laguna Phuket also hosted an Ironman 70.3 and from 2013 to 2015 a Challenge Half. Since 2016 the Laguna Phuket Triathlon is the main event again. However, with nowadays so many events on the calendar it has lost its prominent status.
Men: Simon Lessing, Craig Alexander, Greg Bennett, Alastair Brownlee, Jan Frodeno
