With over 500 confirmed entries so far, the event marks the 27th consecutive year of the event known as “The Race of Legends”.

The signature race distance includes a 1.8km swim, 50km bike and 12km run and sprint distance (0.5km swim, 20km bike and 6km run). In stringent adherence with all the latest event safety standards, race organisers have redesigned the race setup to accommodation athletes with safe distancing criteria in mind, which includes a beach run finish and exciting new post-race afternoon party being held at Xana Beach Club.

This year Southeast Asia’s longest-running triathlon will feature the inaugural Laguna Phuket Duathlon (LPD). Crafted in a 4km run, 50km bike, and 12km run combination, the Duathlon will take place on the same day, giving all athletes the chance to experience the race’s signature bike course.

Online registration is open until Sunday Nov 15 at and on-site registration is available on Saturday Nov 21.
