Below is a list of all events our staff in Asia took part in during 2016:
Completed during February 2016, winter conditions in Japan. Top time was 2:06:56, set by Feyisa Lilesa of Ethiophia. This race was a nice scenic one through one of the world’s most beautiful big cities, completed during the winter in Japan for a cool, comfortable temperature during the race. Stayed in Shinjuku close to racing grounds.
Completed during April 2016, warm tropical summer conditions in Bali. This was one of the hottest and most challenging events of the year, with humid tropical weather and significant heat increasing the difficulty. This race was sponsored by Maybank. Accommodation was provided in the Kuta area of Bali for the team.
This race was completed during July 2016. Weather was hot and humid, as is normal for Pattaya during the midyear period. The race was sponsored by Bangkok Bank and took place along the Beach Road stretch of Pattaya, as well as the city’s Second Road and highway. Accommodation was provided by Guest Friendly Hotels Pattaya at Pattaya Hilton and Siam Bayshore Hotel.
