IRONMAN Asia-Pacific today announced that IRONMAN® Malaysia Langkawi will double as the Asian TriClub Invitational.
“The TriClub Invitational shows our commitment to providing a special experience for the clubs within Asia. We want them to come to Langkawi and find out who is Asia’s top TriClub,” IRONMAN Malaysia Langkawi Race Director CG Lim said.
Tanakorn Cheeptumrong, co-founder of Thailand’s 02Max Tri club, has welcomed the Tri Club Invitational.
“We will have five to ten athletes at IRONMAN Malaysia Langkawi, and I’ll be encouraging as many of our athletes as possible to get involved,” he said. “Triathlon in South East Asia is growing quickly, and programs like the TriClub Invitational are a great way to encourage athletes to race with their friends and teammates and to do what they love.”
Registered clubs will fight it out for a number of great prizes, in a number of different categories.
They will include;
· TriClub Participation Award – The Club with most athletes registered on race day.IRONMAN Malaysia Langkawi will also feature a TriClub Tent village. The village will be located in the heart of the action near the finish at Meritus Pelangi Beach and Resort.
· Most Supportive TriClub Award – The club that makes the most noise, dresses up and has the best support crew for their club in the TriClub Tent Village on race day.
· Fastest Local Award – Each Malaysian club will have their fastest male and female member’s times combined. The Malaysian club with the fastest cumulative time will be the winner.
“This is a great initiative from IRONMAN Asia Pacific, clubs in South East Asia are becoming bigger and bigger,” Cheetumrong said.
All athletes entered in the TriClub Invitational will receive a Limited Edition Official 2015 TriClub Invitational Cap.
