Today (Wednesday 4th September), Asia’s premier destination resort Laguna Phuket has hosted a press conference at Banyan Tree Bangkok for members of the press to preview its 26th annual Laguna Phuket Triathlon, coming up in November this year.

The 26th edition of Asia’s longest-standing triathlon race Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT) in Phuket, Thailand, is scheduled to take place during Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th November 2019 at premier destination resort Laguna Phuket.  Comprising a unique race distance of 1.8K swim, 50K bike and 12K run through the scenic backdrop of Phuket province in Thailand, world champions and elite pro triathletes from around the world will race against each other on Sunday vying for USD 20,000 prize purse. LPT also features “25 For 25 Sprint” short-distance category (0.5K swim, 18.5K bike and 6K run) which was launched in 2018 in celebration of LPT’s 25th anniversary, and “LPT Charity Fun Run” (2K Kids Run, 5K & 10K Charity Run) which will take place in the late afternoon on Saturday 23rd November prior the triathlon races on Sunday.

The press conference was paneled by Mr. Phakaphong Tavipatana, Phuket Governor; Mr. Khemmapol Auitayakul, Secretary to Minister of Tourism and Sports; Mr. Ravi Chandran, Managing Director, Laguna Phuket and Mr. Artiwara Kongmalai (Toon Bodyslam) representing Kao Kon La Kao Foundation, LPT’s new charity partner.

Following last year success where 25th LPT sold out the newly-launched sprint category long before race day, saw record-breaking number of participants, and raised more than Baht 250,000 for Children First Fund (CFF) in support of more than 400 children at 7 orphanages in Phuket, Laguna Phuket Triathlon aims at doubling its charitable causes this year by also supporting Kao Kon La Kao, Thailand’s largest charity run series, in support of hospitals nationwide.
