AYANA Resort and Spa Bali was proud to once again sponsor the seventh annual Biznet Bali International Triathlon which took place on 23 June 2013 with a new course and a record number of participants.

The more than 1200 participants included three-time Ironman champion and 2009 World Championship runner up, Chris Lieto, and Indonesian swimming legend Richard Sam Bera, a three time Olympian and four-time All-American Championship icon. This year, there was a new running course that led Olympic-distance runners up ‘Heartbreak Hill’ from Jimbaran Beach to AYANA Resort and Spa. The challenging run included a steep hill that leveled out and became an undulating path along the main road to the grand entrance of AYANA.

In keeping with the Bali Triathlon tradition, after the main race on June 23, the weekend concluded with post-race sunset soiree at AYANA’s cliff edge lawn and continued with cocktails at the famous Rock Bar, complete with live music, food and camaraderie for both volunteers and athletes.
