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:
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
