Phuket 2013

posted 25 Oct 2013, 04:15 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

To all those doing Phuket LPT


The Dragons will again be attending in force at this year’s LPT with over 25 of us racing – so make sure you have your club kit on, as we are now very well known in Phuket, by the organisers, the locals and other athletes – although perhaps we are best known, as “The Drunken Dragons” for our post race antics at the awards ceremony. Suffice to say, if you haven’t been before, then the order of the evening is to get drunk, leave your inhibitions at the door and party like a teenager…..or worse!

So, as has been custom over the last 5 years or so, we will be coordinating you over the weekend with the optional activities etc below. If you can join us, that would of course be great – but if you have your own plans re family/friends etc – then bring them too. The more the merrier – we welcome everyone with open arms – it’s the Dragons way.



Saturday, 23-Nov

10am – After you’ve had brekkie, we will meet under the banner at the swim start.

We’ll do a light swim, 20-30mins, just to get a feel for currents and marker buoy sighting etc.

Then return to your hotel and get your bike for the next rendezvous….


11:30am – Bike rendezvous at ‘Y’ junction transition area. The free mechanics are also there all day Saturday.
A very leisurely ride out to the top of the first hill on the course at about the 6km mark – we might go 1-2km further, then turn back.

Stop for coffee and croissants at a coochy little café we found a few years back.

Back at hotels by 1pm for lunch.


Lunch & afternoon is arranged ad-hoc between people during the morning – so as to fit in with individuals plans etc



Sunday, 24-Nov

Race Day.

Turn up, race hard, go party!

This year, the committee have rented a small pool villa next door to the locally known ‘Y’ junction transition area.

You are welcome to join us for bubbly and canapés (courtesy of us) at any time from 1pm onwards – before we stagger down to the post race Banquet tent for the evening’s festivities.

When you arrive at the banquet tent, you will see tables reserved for the ‘Drunken Dragons’.
