Laguna Phuket Triathlon returns with thrilling updates for 2023 edition

Asia’s Premier Destination Welcomes Back the 29th Edition of “The Race of Legends” on Sunday, 19th November 2023


Phuket, Thailand — Laguna Phuket, Asia’s premier travel destination and the iconic host of the award-winning Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT), is delighted to announce the much-anticipated return of the 29th edition of this renowned event. Renowned as “The Race of Legends,” the Laguna Phuket Triathlon is set to captivate athletes and enthusiasts once more as it takes place on Sunday, 19th November 2023.

The Laguna Phuket Triathlon, Asia’s longest-standing triathlon, features a unique race distance comprising a 1.8K swim, a 55K bike ride, and a challenging 12K run. These elements will take athletes through the breathtaking tropical landscapes of the acclaimed Laguna Phuket resort and the picturesque local communities in the northern part of Phuket Island.

As we prepare for the 29th edition of this iconic event, we’re delighted to unveil several new and exciting features that will make this year’s LPT an unforgettable experience for all participants.

Cash Prizes for Aspiring Pros

In a groundbreaking move, Laguna Phuket Triathlon is breaking the barriers between amateurs and professionals. For the first time ever, all Thai and non-Thai athletes who aspire to compete with the pros can now vie for cash prizes. To join this elite league of competitors, simply select the “Elite Category” during the registration process, rather than the age group category.

New Pre and Post-Race Experiences

Alongside with the official Bike Practice Session and Clinic, hosted by  Cycosports  that take place on the 17th November, this year the athletes will have the change to kickstart their LPT journey with an Open Water Practice Swim on Saturday 18th November, hosted by TriHub at 7.00am.
Beyond the race day excitement, 2023 brings a series of engaging activities for all participants. From a relaxing recovery yoga session and a sumptuous breakfast at Open Kitchen to an adrenaline-pumping Muay Thai boxing show  4 man Championship. The festivities culminate with the Lifestyle Night Market on Saturday 18th and 25th November in the heart of Laguna Phuket.

Over the past 28 years, the Laguna Phuket Triathlon has earned its reputation as Southeast Asia’s longest-running and most successful triathlon event. In 2020, it was recognized as one of The World’s Greatest Tri Swims by 220 Triathlon Magazine (UK) and ranked 5th on the 10 Best Triathlons in the World list by Let’s Do This (UK). It has hosted elite athletes and triathlon legends, including Jan Frodeno, Amelia Watkinson, Charlie Quinn and Michael Raelert, who have all been captivated by its stunning route, clean air, and abundant natural beauty.


With limited slots available, we encourage all enthusiasts to secure their spots in their desired race designation as early as possible. Race options include the full Individual and Team Triathlon, Sprint Triathlon, and Duathlon. For the ultimate event experience, participants can book their stay at any of the 7 hotels within the Laguna Phuket group at a special rate using code “LTP2023” when booking.
