Penang International Triathlon And Duathlon 2016 @ Teluk Bahang, Penang

By : Chha

I was not aware about any Triathlon or Duathlon that is going on in Penang until I was informed about it. As a marathon enthusiastic, getting to know about such event happening in Penang really gets me all hyped up to go, this time is not to join but to have a look at what this Penang International Triathlon And Duathlon 2016 (PGiTD 2016) is all about.


The main sponsor for Penang International Triathlon And Duathlon 2016 (PGiTD 2016) is Thailand's number 1 sports drink name SPONSOR.




SPONSOR is a sports drink that helps to boost performance, sustain endurance and accelerate recovery for those who are serious about their sport. SPONSOR is famously used by the Thai National Football Team as their official sports drink.

Well a triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines. While many variations of the sport exist, triathlon, in its most popular form, involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances (Source).

While a Duathlon is an athletic event that consists of a running leg, followed by a cycling leg and then another running leg in a format bearing some resemblance to triathlons (Source).


This year Penang International Triathlon And Duathlon 2016 (PGiTD 2016) were held at Teluk Bahang Dam, Penang on 17 April 2016 and were managed by EverQuest Sdn. Bhd. The race flag-off time for both Triathlon and Duathlon were at 7:30am. They even have shuttle to swim site for all Triathletes from 6:30am - 7:00am.
