Laguna Phuket Announces Childrens Race for Triathlon 2008
Southeast Asia’s premier multi-sport event, the Laguna Phuket Triathlon 2008, will take place on Sunday 7 December and has already sold out. However, there are still opportunities for young athletes to get involved in this year’s sporting event, by participating in a Kid’s Splash & Dash at 8am on Saturday 6 December.
Youngsters can challenge themselves to the following distances depending on age: 8-10 year olds will swim 50m then run 1k, 11-12 year olds will swim 75m then run 1.5k, 13-14 year olds will swim 150m then run 2.25k and 15-17 year olds will swim 300m and run 4.5k. All participants who complete the race will receive a medal and the top three in each category will receive a trophy to mark their achievement.
Laguna Phuket’s Senior Assistant Vice President of Government and Community Relations, Mr. Niyom Tassaneetipagorn commented “Laguna Phuket is delighted to announce this new race and takes pride in its social inclusion policies. We already include a Fun Run for children in our international marathon so this really opens up the Triathlon to both local and guest’s children staying at the resort - offering a unique
dimension to their holiday”.
