Desaru Long Distance Triathlon

Desaru Long Distance Triathlon is just one week away from now. It will be a 2 day event(2 & 3 Oct), Saturday will be the Long Distance race which consist of  a 2km swim, 90km bike and a 21km run and will start aorund 10am. On Sunday will be the Sprint race which consists of a 500m swim, 18km bike and a 3km run(its more of a super sprint) and will start around 9am. If you are planning to come down be there a bit earlier because the main roads leading into Desaru will closed during the race.  And if you still wanna drive in DONT you will be disturbing the race and you dont want people booing you.

If you are NEW to Triathlon and just wanna check out the race and get a feel of the atmosphere i do recommend you coming on Sunday and chek out the Sprint as it will be a short race and there will be lots of action going around. But if you have the patience to sit around for 4-6 hours then see you on Saturday. 🙂

This will be the 15th year that the race is being organized. And it is the first time that the race has moved to a different venue although still on the same Desaru road, it will be hosted in a different hotel this year(hope the food will be good!!)
