Event summary

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.

Everything was excellent in regards ro the race. The course on the swim bike and run was top notched. Future racers need to watch their intakes and keep hydrated to do well due to the weather, the humidity, and a strong and many rolling hills on the bike route.Avoid last minutes flight because only limited flight hours are available from only a few number of airlines… read more

Im not a huge fan of a 2 lap, beach run break in the swim course. The bike course is also a 2 lap situation. For the run leg I find laps helpful in breaking up the distance mentally, but there were some long, grueling, bleak sections to this run course. The conditions are tough - its hot, humid, and there were some heavy showers. This is a race where you can expect to be soggy all day, so definitely come prepared with a waterproof anti-chafe balm. These factors aside, the race is very well organized, with an army of friendly and helpful volunteers. Langkawi is a beautiful island when you get out of town, and the people are welcoming and supportive. Its a tough but feel-good race. Id definitely consider coming back.… read more
