Thank you for all the efforts in putting this event on. The experience that has been gained over many years running the Laguna Phuket Triathlon was very evident and this was certainly one of the best organised races I have ever taken part in. Great job.

Will definitely be back next year & have convinced a few club members from home to join me (they don't believe me about the hills). Thanks for an awesome, if not hard, day. Also thank the Thai people -- they were the best crowd ever.

I thoroughly enjoyed the 70.3 Asia Championship in Phuket. Particularly the bike course; it was very unique and really separated the men from the boys...I loved it! The overall organisation was great and the friendliness of all the helping hands on and off the course was just amazing. I would recommend the race to anybody and I have already made many positive remarks to my friends.

I have been doing triathlon for almost 20 years all over the world and taken part in the LPT race 6 times. After a race like this, the key question for me to ask myself is, "would I recommend this race to my friends?" The answer is a resounding "Yes!"

At Phuket 70.3, you can hold your head high- truly one of the toughest, most honest courses I have ever done in my 20 years of triathlon. Fantastic race, fabulous event…definitely worthy of Championship status!

Whether you prefer the WTC's Ironman 70.3 Laguna Phuket or the classic (and shorter) Laguna Phuket Triathlon, it's hard not to choose Laguna Phuket, Thailand, as our No. 1 luxury race destination.
