Minh Long to sponsor the IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam 2017

Minh Long is proud to be one of co-sponsors for IRONMAN 70.3, the largest international triathlon event taking place in Viet Nam this summer.

Not only is it innovative and leading in its industry, but Minh Long also catches up with regular participation in social activities and fully supports meaningful events nationwide.

The third edition of IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam 2017 will take place in Da Nang on May 7, attracting well over 1,100 professional athletes of all ages from more than 50 countries around the globe. With over 300 athletes, the host country Vietnam has the most participants.

All athletes will compete in the triathlon event including swimming, cycling and a half marathon loop, which makes up the 113km race (equal to 70.3 miles that IRONMAN 70.3 gets its name from). The event has each participant swim 1.9km before cycling 90km along the coastline of Danang and running 21km to the finish line. The race is organized on Son Thuy beach, along Danang’s pristine coastline and past some of the city’s key landmarks.

30 finishers of the 2017 event, regardless age groups, will be attending the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. This year the event also qualifies two slots for Vietnam’s Best Male and Best Female Athletes.

Along with IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam is Sunrise Sprint (S2), a short-distance race for all triathlon first-timers.
