Langkawi Island, the Jewel of Kedah, is set to host IRONMAN Malaysia again in 2017. Located within a cluster of tropical islands that attract visitors the world over, the race will take athletes on a truly Malaysian cultural journey through tropical, hilly and demanding terrain passing traditional kampungs (villages), mangrove clusters and rainforest vistas. The ocean swim starts from the picturesque white sandy beach of Pantai Kok with a two-loop triangle out and back course. A two-loop bike course heads out of Pantai Kok on to a clockwise loop from towards the rolling hills of Datai and the fringes of Kuah Town. Athletes will return from the bike into an unique indoor air conditioned transition at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Center (next to the airport) . The 2 lap run course will be an amazing scenic run beside the Langkawi International Airport towards the finish line at the stunning Cenang beach. There are 50 qualifying slots to the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
