Organisers call it “A bucket-list destination with one of the fastest courses in Asia.” You’ll recall it as the day you proved to yourself that you have what it takes to challenge your mind and body to an agonising, glorious and soul-satisfying competition slated for 12 May 2019 and staged in an area that’s so scenic, athletes need all of the focus they can muster to stay on goal.
Have you thought about venturing off on a challenge that is guaranteed to add to your credibility and self-confidence? Book a ticket to Vietnam after you register for the Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship. You’ll test your mettle along a glorious 30-mile stretch of sugar-white sand and experience the wonder of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
In addition to traveling through tourism hot spots like the Imperial City of Hue, Hoi An Ancient Town and the My Son Sanctuary, you’re going to find yourself feeling great about the fact that you trained like a champion for this competition so you’re able to do your very best under the usual daunting circumstances.
When you’re not taking part in the event, there’s so much about Danang that you’ll want to see that arriving early (or staying on) is worth taking extra time from your job and family. As Vietnam’s third-largest city, don’t miss myriad cultural attractions and treat yourself to white glove dining, whether you prefer international cuisine, or you want to indulge in ethnic dishes you can’t get elsewhere.
The race itself is fast and formidable, beginning with a 1.9km ocean swim that’s to be staged at the designated race central: The Hyatt Regency Da Nang Resort & Spa. This posh resort serves as headquarters for athletes and their families and also marks the start line triggering the 2-loop, 90km bicycle course over nicely paved roads that run along the coastline.
The Grand Finale
The swim and bike portion of your challenge completed, it’s time to move on to the grand finale: the 21km road race that takes runners past a number of famous beach resorts before they loop around and return to the Hyatt where the finish line ends this grand adventure.
Danang is more than just a 3-part Asia Pacific challenge. It also qualifies you for September’s World Championship in Nice, France if you are fit enough to snag one of the 50 slots available.
Do you have what it takes to face this Danang endurance race with the grit and courage you’ve displayed at other athletic events? Gain inspiration from those who jumped in at the Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam 2018. If you can imagine the water on your skin and the earth beneath your feet while you watch this video, you’re an ideal candidate for the 2019 version!
