The venue for the second Pho3nix Kids Triathlon on 23 April has now been finalized. For the first time ever, a junior triathlon will take place in the heart of Bangkok at Virgin Active 101, 101 True Digital Park. The swim is contested at Virgin active’s lap pool, the bike portion will be on calibrated stationary bikes with the run staged at Virgin active’s 200 meter indoor track. This spectator friendly format is the first time such an event is held for juniors in Thailand and will offer a new and unique challenge to athletes tackling the course. Virgin active offers world class facilities for the race and you won’t even have to bring your own bike!
Race distances remain the same for all triathlon categories except for the 8-9 year old advanced triathlon category’s bike leg which has been reduced from 5km to 3km, a more suitable distance for that age group. The Duathlon format has been changed to a Bike-Run format for logistical reasons.
