Held on the beautiful grounds of Laguna Grove and Laguna Phuket, the race is loved for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere and inclusive nature with activities for everyone, including the “Pasta Party”, held the night prior to the main race to help athletes fuel their bodies for the big day.

Marketed as “The Race of Legends”, Laguna Phuket Triathlon has a long history of attracting some of the best triathletes from around the world, and legends such as Mark Allen, Greg Welch, Craig Alexander, Paula Newby-Fraser, Michelle Jones, Chris McCormack, Chrissie Wellington and Michael Realert have all competed in the race. This year professional sports commentator and TV voice talent Whit Raymond will preside over the event.

A truly inclusive event, athletes can choose between the main individual race as well as the newly introduced sprinting distance, the 25For25 Sprint, with 0.5km swim, 18.5km bike and 6km run. Back by popular demand is also the Charity Fun Run, comprising of 5km and 10km distances to raise funds for underprivileged children in Phuket. A 2km distance for junior runners is also available.
