Organizer announce registrations for the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon have hit record levels with many last-minute entries for the add-on event of the 5 kilometre fun run. In all, athletes for some 24 countries are registered to participate this year.

The 2012 Olympic Distance and Half-Triathlon in Bali includes some important changes. The bike race down the crowded roads of the Ungasan peninsula has been moved to the less congested Ngurah Rai Bypass Highway connecting Nusa Dua and Jimbaran with half of the highway set aside for the exclusive use of cyclists. The run down the sandy beach between the swim and the cycling legs of the Olympic Distance and Half-Triathlon has been eliminated with both the swim start and finish moved to an area directly in front of the transition area. The transition and race-day-party venues have moved to a spacious garden located on the north side of the InterContinental Bali Resort. Registration and the Saturday afternoon pre-race mandatory briefing have moved to the InterContinental, also the new locale for the popular “high-carb” dinner on Saturday night for race participants.

Returning athletes to this year’s race will notice that many aspects of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon remain unchanged. Back again are the welcoming “sundowner” cocktail party at 5:00 pm on Friday night with tasty canapés from Four Seasons Resorts and free flowing wine and beer – sponsored by Bintang Bir and Hatten Wines will be held at one of palatial private residence of the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay.

Also back by popular demand from last year is the popular VIP Winner’s Sunday night cocktail on the cliffs of the AYANA Resort and Spa Bali overlooking Jimbaran Bay, a magical affair that concludes with a drink at Bali’s fabled “Rock Bar.” Tickets for this event co-sponsored by the Resort, Bir Bintang and Hatten Wines will be sale at registration and the transition area on Sunday morning. The cocktail, open to racers and the public, starts at 6:00 pm with the party adjourning with a first drink at the “Rock Bar” at 8:00 pm. Advance tickets are available at Rp. 250,000 each with tickets at the door costing Rp. 400,000.

Also unchanged at the 2012 BIZNET Bali International Triathlon will be the uniquely warm welcome extended to race participants by the people of Bali who have adopted the race as their very own.

The BIZNET Bali International Triathlon main sponsor is BIZNET Networks - the leading fixed-line and multimedia telecommunication provider in Indonesia. Lead hotel sponsors of the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay, InterContinental Bali Resort and AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali will again provide valuable top-winners prizes and help sponsor the meals, parties and supporting functions of the race. Member hotel of the Bali Hotels Association have generously provided accommodation for winners, celebrity athletes, the press and race officials. Jenggala Ceramics are again creating trophies for winners along with a couple of new sponsors . Back also is the BIMC Hospital providing medical care during the race backed up by Bali’s most sophisticated medical centers at each end of the race. Herbalife has also joined this year’s race as a major sponsor. TYR Indonesia is providing every participant  with an official race T-shirts and swim caps.
