Registration remains open for the Challenge Laguna Phuket

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Registration is still open for the 2014 half-distance Challenge Laguna Phuket in Thailand – and the opportunity still exists to compete in this unique destination event that has captured the hearts of triathletes all over the world.

The race, set for November 30, will be the second Challenge Family series race to be staged on this paradise tropical island, a week after the celebrated 21st annual Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT).

The days between the two events will be filled with a Tri-Fest of training and social events held in and around the luxurious Laguna Phuket destination resort.

This triathlon carnival has proved a popular attraction for international athletes eager to sample the delights of Thailand, while rubbing shoulders with the likes of Rasmus Petraeus (DEN) and Melissa Hauschildt (AUS), last year’s Challenge Laguna Phuket champions.

Rasmus Petraeus triumphed at Laguna Phuket last year in 04:05:06. Following Petraeus home were an elite field of seasoned athletes, including Alberto Casadei (ITA), Alberto Alessandroni (ITA), Ruedi Wild (SUI) and Massimo Cigana (ITA).

The 2013 women’s field top finishers were Melissa Hauschildt (AUS), Radka Vodickova (CZE), Tamsin Lewis (GBR), Belinda Granger (AUS) and Ange Castle (AUS).

This year, both Petraeus and Hauschildt will return to defend their titles. They are set to face strong challenges from a field that will include many of their competitors from last year; Ruedi Wild, Massimo Cigana, Radka Vodickova, Belinda Granger and Ange Castle have all confirmed to race the 2014 Challenge Laguna Phuket on November 30.

Challenge Laguna Phuket Returns

The Laguna Phuket Triathlon is the longest running triathlon in Asia, attracting sports’ legends and age groupers alike to the island for two decades. This year, Laguna Phuket will once again welcome Challenge Laguna Phuket to the weeklong celebration of sport, incorporating the iconic Laguna Phuket Triathlon (Nov 23) and half-distance Challenge Laguna Phuket.
