(6/22/2009)

Fast paced preparations are underway in anticipation of the MRA Bali International Triathlon to be held at Bali's picturesque Jimbaran Bay and south island on Sunday, June 29, 2008.

Organizers report that registrations are running well ahead of last year's inaugural event for individual racers swimming the 1.5 km water course, 42 km cycling route through Nusa Dua and the Ungasan peninsula, and 10 km run through Jimbaran village. Registrations are also ahead of last year's levels for 3-person teams covering the course in the "corporate team challenge" and the 5 km fun run being held simultaneously with the triathlon.

Fun for both the athletes participating in the event or those coming just to enjoy the excitement of race day. The start and finish lines located on Jimbaran Beach's race headquarters, opposite the Four Season’s Private Estates at Jimbaran Bay, will be the place to track the progress of athletes, enjoy music and live broadcasts from Hard Rock Radio, sumptuous quantities of food and drink, booths displaying local merchandise and free massages from Bali's world-renowned Jari Menari.

Free Massages

Back by popular demand, the Jari Menari team will be on hand offering free massages to rejuvenate athletes. At last year’s event, Susan Stein, the founder of Jari Menari’s and her team spoiled athletes from their special pavilion equipped with massage tables, massage chairs and reflexology stations. According to Stein: "We loved setting up under a tent and in the 'bale' where the cushioned matt proved to be the perfect location to share massage and stretching sessions. The fresh air and coolness under the canopy were welcome relief from the heat and we arranged the tent like a living room for massage, very comfortable to be working in the open air, with natural light, sound of sea and birds to serenade us all.”

As shown in the accompanying pictures on balidiscovery.com - after swimming, running, and biking athletes were thrilled to be touched by the Jari Menari "dancing fingers" team as muscles needed attention and encouragement to relax after the hours of hard use.

Bupati to Start the Race

Following his attendance at last year's race, the Badung Regency's bupati, Anak Agung Gede Agung, now confesses he is a fan or triathlon and has graciously accepted an invitation to start the race at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, June 29th.

Be There!

There's still time to register to undertake the Olympic Distance event or the 5 km fun run by registering at [Official Bali Triathlon Website].

Special accommodation packages are also on offer from Bali Discovery Tours at [Triathlon Accommodation Offers].

As much fun for spectators as it is for race participants, join the party at Jimbaran Beach starting from 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 29, 2008.
