Herbalife becomes title sponsor of the 8th Edition of the Bali International Triathlon set for Sunday, October 25, 2015.
First ran in 2007, the eighth edition of the “Triathlon with a Soul” – the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon will return after a one year absence to the Jimbaran and Nusa Dua area of South Bali on the last Sunday of October 2015.
Last year’s running of the popular Triathlon was postponed until 2015, while Indonesia held nationwide elections for their new President and Vice-President.
The event, comprised of a full Olympic Triathlon, a half-triathlon and a 5-kilometer fun run has won numerous awards, including “Best Destination Triathlon.”
Growing year after year, the 2015 Herbalife Bali International Triathlon, is expected to draw over 1,000 athletes from some 30 countries, including more than 500 Indonesia triathletes.
The race will again be centered at Jimbaran Bay. Generously supported by Jimbaran area hotels and businesses, the race will begin shortly after sunrise with a swim in the tranquil waters of Jimbaran Bay, followed by a bike sprint to Nusa Dua and finishing with a road race.
“Race Central” marking the start and the finish of the race will be within the gardens of the InterContinental Bali Resort and Spa where food, drinks, vendor’s stand and musical entertainment will be presented all morning long. The “Race Central Stage” will provide music throughout the morning and also be the venue for trophy and prize presentation to the winners in the various age and sex categories.
The title sponsor for the 2015 event is Herbalife Indonesia – part of the global nutrition company now operating in 90 countries worldwide. Ms. Andam Dewi, Country General Manager and Director of Herbalife Indonesia, announced the company’s support of the event, “Herbalife is proud to once again assume a sponsorship role in the Bali International Triathlon, increasing our participation in 2015 to that of title sponsor. The dedication, focus and commitment to living a healthy, active life form the core of the life of successful triathletes and are values also championed by Herbalife via its nutrition, weight-management, energy and fitness products. “
Mr. M. Fathur Rozi, race director of the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon, shared a range of strategies now being put in place to accommodate the growing number of athletes expected to participate the challenges of operating a race in the rapidly developing setting of Bali. “This year’s running of the race will see traffic pressures greatly reduced through the opening of the Bali Mandara Toll Way that offers an alternative routing around the main race corridor. Closer cooperation with the Bali Police, Badung regency and the active participation of the Banjars in South Bali will go a long way to ensuring racers along the cycling and foot race routes are not unduly impeded,” Rozi explained.
“As with past races, the welcoming cocktail on Friday night, a traditional Balinese bike blessing, the delicious high-carb race-eve dinner and a post “rock the race party,” he added.
