Triathletes from around the world are heading to Phuket for a weekend of swim-bike-run where 1,500 competitors from more than 60 countries are expected to compete in the Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand on November 26, and up to 300 youngsters in the Foremost IRONKIDS Thailand.

 

Built on the belief that Anything is Possible®, IRONMAN – the original triathlon brand – was founded in 1978 and today stages over 150 IRONMAN events in more than 50 countries each year including the annual IRONMAN World Championship (3.8km swim/ 180km bike/ 42km run) and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship (1.9km swim/ 90km bike/ 21km run).

 

With more than 1,000,000 people having completed an IRONMAN/ IRONMAN 70.3 since 1978, Thailand joins the largest global triathlon series for a second year with the Foremost IRONMAN 70.3 Thailand which will take place on Phuket at Angsana Laguna Phuket on the spectacular Bang Tao Beach.
