The exciting and challenging ‘Bangkok Triathlon 2018’ or ‘Sahaviriya-Bangkok Triathlon 2018’ returns after a two-year absence and is scheduled from 7 to 8 July in the Thai capital.
Surely this is the one day for participants to swim in Chao Phraya river because people don’t do that normally. Swimming in Thailand’s mightiest plus running across Bangkok’s picturesque Rama 8 Bridge and cycling along deserted overpasses are treats not to be missed.
The event features six individual challenges packed into two days. Participants can choose from colourfully named sections of different durations and degree of difficulty, including: ‘Bangkok Beast’, ‘Bangkok Beast Duathlon’, ‘Bangkok Braveheart’, ‘Tough Thai’, ‘Tough Thai Relay’ and Tough Thai Duathlon’.
Each stage has its own race route and different lengths of the running, swimming and cycling stages. All stages also divided into categories according age, gender, single, and team. The event is open to online registration that must be completed before midnight on 16 June.
Entry fee includes running number, timing slip, pre-race souvenir pack, commemorative finisher’s medal and trophy for winners in each category.
Registration meeting point is under Rama 8 Bridge, Rama 8 park side. All participants should do so one day in advance of race day, which is open to register on 6 July at 7.00-21.00 Hrs. and 7 July at 10.00-17.00 Hrs.
