This coming September, in what promises to be an action filled weekend, Challenge Vietnam will bring it’s inaugural Vietnam International Triathlon competition to Nha Trang. The event will welcome some of the world’s top tri-athletes who will compete in one of the most challending triathlon events, right on the shores of Nha Trang City.
The race takes place on the weekend of September 11th 2016, and is certainly not for the faint hearted. Athletes will aim to complete a gruelling course consisting of a 90km cycle, a 21km run, and a 1.9km swim, which is sure to be an incredible feat of endurance.
The challenge can be completed either as an individual (for experienced and rugged triathletes), or through the Team Relay option in which specialists in one discipline can complete one relay before passing over to a team mate.
CHALLENGEFAMILY Asia Pacific CEO, Marcus Altmann, said the organization is very excited to have chosen Nha Trang as the destination for the event:
“This is one of most beautiful places I have ever visited. The locals are incredibly welcoming and as with all our races, it is a destination that will be enjoyed by athletes and their friends and families alike. We are very much looking forward to working with the team at Pulse Active and the local community to create an iconic event on the CHALLENGE FAMILY calendar.”
