Posted by Tuan Rumah | 2:17 AM | | 0 comments »

Brought to you by renowned sports brand name Lotto, this event will be held on February 23 2008 on the tropical island of Langkawi, Malaysia.

With up to USD 50,000 cash prizes up for grabs, individuals from all across the globe will come together and compete in this annual Langkawi event. Only male and female pro-triathletes are eligible to receive the cash prize, while age groupers will receive medals and an opportunity to compete at the final triathlon held in Hawaii.

Competitors for Ironman Malaysia Triathlon will have a very rough course to complete to obtain the coveted prizes. Set on the Equator with tropical hot and humid temperatures, Langkawi will give even seasoned athletes a professional and personal challenge.

This year’s triathlon installment consists of several obstacles, namely:

  1. Swimming – Athletes begin their day with a two-loop swim in the Kuah Bay, beginning and ending at the waters beside the prominent Dataran Lang (Eagle Square).
  2. Cycling – The 180.2km route begins at the Jetty after athletes complete their initiating swim. The terrain for this three-loop course is a combination of flat land and hills.
  3. Running – With a fairly acceptable terrain, athletes should feel comfortable to complete this obstacle. However, even the strongest athletes have a hard time running in the heat of Langkawi in February. The total of 42.2km run begins and ends at the Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) in Kuah.

Enjoy the beginning of this great event onboard one of your own chartered yacht from Blue Water Star Sailing. Then set sail for the day on pristine waters and discover the wonderful hidden treasures Langkawi has – mangrove forests, limestone rocks and bat caves, and wonderful secluded beaches. And grab a chance while you’re out cruising, to anchor and take a swim at a nice spot.

Or opt to enjoy the evening with a luxurious dinner while cruising in the Andaman Sea. View the sunset from the deck of your chartered yacht. Blue Water Star Sailing will help make your boating dreams come true.
