As a sponsor of the Bali International
Triathlon, Ayana Resort and Spa Bali has unveiled a customized
promotion in celebration of one of the island’s most eagerly
anticipated sporting events of the year.
This year’s 5th annual race will be held on 26
June in the area surrounding picturesque Jimbaran Bay. The course
will consist of two distance races: an Olympic Distance Course
comprising a 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km flat and fast run;
and a Sprint Course comprising a 500m swim, 20km cycle and 5km
run. A 5km fun run and other activities will also be held,
including a Balinese Hindu bicycle blessing before the race for
all participants, highlighting the unique nature of this event.
Past winners of the Olympic Distance race
include Australia's Luke McKenzie, a 5-time Ironman Champion,
whose wife Amanda Balding finished third in the 2009 women's
"This race has become one of the most high-profile events
on Bali's sporting calendar, and has drawn participants from
around the world," said Ayana's General Manager, Charles de Foucault. "Everyone loves an excuse to come to Bali, and for
triathletes, this race represents a unique opportunity to
challenge themselves in a completely different environment, whilst

event continue to grow and bring people to the Jimbaran area."
