Thanyapura Phuket’s standing as Asia’s premier sports training, lifestyle and education institution has been highlighted by a series of blue ribbon events to top off the year, beginning with the infamous 2015 TRI Super Camp in August, and finishing off the year with a fun-filled colour fun run that will see you get doused in coloured powder while you run.
Mr Philipp Graf von Hardenberg, Thanyapura President and Chief Executive Officer, said the sporting events showcased a trifecta of Thanyapura’s core strengths – triathlon, swimming and running – as well as its cutting-edge facilities and world-class coaches, which has attracted scores of professional and amateur athletes.
“We’ve got some really exciting events coming up that illustrate what Thanyapura is about – namely improving performance and health through the best coaches and training facilities, the optimum diet, a focus on harnessing the power of the mind to elicit better performance from the body, and using all the considerable resources at our disposal to ensure everyone at Thanyapura can make real strides towards optimising their potential,” he said.
“We’re delighted to be able to give Thai and international athletes a state-of-the-art outlet to achieve that through our ongoing presence and these superb events.”
First up on the exciting and busy schedule is the TRI Super Camp, which runs from 22-30 August. The camp gives people the opportunity to live, breath and sleep triathlon, and is centered on an intense training focus.
Later in the year, the Thanyapura SUPERKIDZ Aquathlon and Anyman Aquathlon 2015 will kick off the school year with a range of race distances and formats for all ages and fitness levels. The fun-filled event will be staged on September 5.
