The Penang International Triathlon & Duathlon (PgiTD) which concluded its fourth annual event on April 17, 2016 was a great success with this year’s event drawing 1000 participants both locally and internationally. 550 participants took part in the triathlon and 450 joined the duathlon.


“This year’s PgiTD is a great boost for tourism in Penang. We have participants from over 22 countries all the way from United States, Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, France, Philippines, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, Netherland, Norway, Pakistan, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Venezuela and Malaysia. This really helps to put us on the map,” shared by the organizer, Chairman of G-Club Cyclist Penang, Dato Dr. Lim Seh Guan.
The main sponsor for the PgiTD 2016 is a newcomer and Thailand’s number 1 sports drink, SPONSOR. Brought to you by the same makers as Red Bull, the world’s No.1 selling energy drink, SPONSOR is a sports drink that helps to boost performance, sustain endurance and accelerate recovery for those who are serious about their sport. SPONSOR has been around in Thailand for more than 30 years, and famously consumed by the Thai National Football Team as their official sports drink.



Flagged off by Chief Minister of Penang, Y.A.B. Lim Guan Eng, General Manager of SPONSOR Malaysia, Mr. Charles Wong, and Chairman of G-Club Cyclist Penang, Dato Dr. Lim Seh Guan at 7.30am, the triathletes started the day with a 1.5km swim at Pantai Jubilee followed by cycling 40km and running 10km. Meanwhile, duathletes were flagged off by Director of Community Services Department Penang, Rashidah Binti Jalaludin, Pornsak Sermwiwatwong, Senior Business Development Manager from TC Pharmaceutical and Organizing Chairman of PgiTD 2016, Ben Woon. They started off with their 7 km run around the scenic Teluk Bahang fishing village, followed by a race to complete a 40 km cycle from Teluk Bahang Dam to Balik Pulau and back, and then a 10 km distance run and looping back to the finishing line at Teluk Bahang Dam.

“This year’s race was the toughest of all years. The heat and weather was the biggest hurdle for me. I find the availability of chilled SPONSOR sports drinks at the water stations, very helpful in cooling me down and providing me with the energy to endure till the finishing line,” shared by Irene Teoh, one of the PgiTD 2016 participants.

“We are glad that our first year, as main sponsor for PgiTD has given us huge exposure to our direct target consumers. I would say that this sponsorship was a great success as I am able to see a huge acceptance of the drink; they loved the taste and they loved what it did for their performance,” said Mr. Charles Wong, General Manager of SPONSOR Malaysia.
