Following the success of the inaugural Laguna Lăng C Triathlon in 2013, organisers have confirmed that this years event will take place on Saturday, 29 March 2014, the same weekend as the hugely popular Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

What impact holding the triathlon the same weekend as the Hong Kong Sevens will have, if any at all, is anyones guess. The Sevens is one of the biggest sporting events in the entire region, and while for many it is a two to three-day party with some amazing rugby on the side, it is also a major networking event for some of the largest companies in Asia Pacific.

Hopefully there will not be too much overlap, as professional and non-professional athletes alike will once again gather in Lang Co to take part in the triathlon. In total, up to 300 people are expected to take part in the Lang Co event across four separate age categories.

Competitors will swim 1.8km along the resort beaches and cycle for 62km through the idyllic Hue countryside before running the final 12km stretch around Lagunas world-class golf course, designed by Sir Nick Faldo himself.

Lagunas Managing Director, Ravi Chandran, has revealed his aim for the annual triathlon is to put Laguna Lăng C on the global map not only as a world-class integrated resort for all holidaymakers and second home owners but also as an exciting destination for sports and adventure aficionados.

Last years mens event was won by Italian Massimo Cigana, who will return to defend his title. Also attending this time around is Chris Macca McCormack, a two-time world ironman champion, and they will be joined by approximately six other male professionals.

The womens race was previously won by Radka Vodickova, but as yet this years line-up has not been finalised.

Aside from the main event, athletes looking for a slightly less imposing course have plenty of options to choose from.

There is a triathlon team relay and a duathlon, which complete the morning programme. The afternoon hosts a standalone 62km cycling race and is expected to attract a strong Vietnamese field of athletes.

The Laguna Lăng C Triathlon is aiming to build on the success of its renowned sister event, the Laguna Phuket triathlon, which in December celebrated its 20th year in operation (Pictures from Laguna Phuket Triathlon 2013).
