PHUKET, THAILAND – Asia’s leading active and healthy lifestyle destination, Thanyapura Phuket, held a successful Thanyapura SUPERKIDZ Triathlon event welcoming young athletes and enthusiasts of all nationalities and ages to its world-class sports facilities today.

The triathlon event provided young athletes a chance to experience the world-class sporting facilities at Thanyapura Phuket including its 50m Olympic standard outdoor pool. The bike route was set within the surrounding nature of Khao Phra Thaew National Park and the race ended with the run leg on Thanyapura’s cushioned athletics track.
“It was great to see so many eager young up and coming athletes ready to race on a beautiful morning at Thanyapura. The active healthy lifestyle environment of swim bike and run is fantastic for kids to grow up and be a part of. We will have more of these events and training programmes to support those who would like to better themselves or simply have fun,” said Executive Chairman and 4-time triathlon world champion, Chris McCormack.
The SUPERKIDZ Triathlon was successfully hosted with support from Thalang Police Authority and the Chief of Thalang District, Mr. Supoj Chanakij, ensuring the safety of both competitors and spectators throughout the morning.
