Top triathletes to race in Lang Co

THUA THIEN –HUE  (VNS) — Over 300 athletes will compete in the Laguna Lang Co-Vietnam Airlines Triathlon on March 29, the oragnising committee has announced.

Professionals and amateurs will compete in a 1.8km swim along the beach resort and then cycle 62km through the idyllic Hue countryside before running the final 12km stretch around Laguna's world-class golf course designed by Sir Nick Faldo.

Athletes are expected to take part in four age groups.

Italian Massimo Cigana, who won the men's race last year, will return to defend his title.

Also taking part this time around will be Chris ‘Macca' McCormack, a two-time world ironman champion, and they will be joined by six other male professionals.

The Laguna Lang Co-Vietnam Airlines Triathlon is built on the incredible success of its renowned sister event, the Laguna Phuket triathlon.

Last year, over 200 athletes from the US, France, England, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, and Japan took part in the race.
