Laguna Phuket Triathlon
2 December 2007

 

Course:

1.8km Swim: The swim course comprises two bodies of water. Starting on the beach at the Laguna Phuket resort, competitors swim 1,200 metres in the sea before sprinting 100 metres across the beach to swim the last 600 metres in a lagoon finishing at the Laguna Beach Resort Y-junction. Wetsuits are not allowed.

55km Bike: The bike course takes competitors out of Laguna Phuket onto narrow, winding roads. The route has been changed in order to eliminate the loop in Ban Don. The first half of the course will be similar to the 2006 course with some steep hilly sections on the road to Naithon Beach north of Laguna Phuket. The loop in Bandon has been eliminated and an extra stretch added on the main 402 road. Drafting is illegal. Suggested equipment includes a minimum of two water bottle cages. Athletes should consider a 24-28 tooth rear cassettes to ease the difficulty of hill climbs. Some of the road surfaces may be rough and athletes should use durable tires. The bike course will have 2 aid stations.

12km Run: The run course will be similar to the 2006 course. It is flat and leads runners north through the Laguna Phuket resort complex and onto the award-winning Laguna Phuket Golf Club, before looping back past the Wedding Chapel through Canal Shopping Village and finishing at the Laguna Beach Resort Y-junction. The course will have three Aid Stations approximately 2km apart that runners pass twice.
