The event will feature a new and unique format. The swim will take place at the club’s 25m lap pool in groups of 12. After the swim there will be a short break with athletes being moved to the stationary bike area.

All athletes in the group will then start the bike leg at the same time, T2 will be a live transition to the run. The final time will be made up by combining the swim time, bike time, T2 time and run time.

The venue for the second Pho3nix Kids Triathlon on 23 April has now been finalized.

The swim is contested at Virgin active’s lap pool, the bike portion will be on calibrated stationary bikes with the run staged at Virgin active’s 200 meter indoor track. This spectator friendly format is the first time such an event is held for juniors in Thailand and will offer a new and unique challenge to athletes tackling the course.

Race distances remain the same for all triathlon categories except for the 8-9 year old advanced triathlon category’s bike leg which has been reduced from 5km to 3km, a more suitable distance for that age group. The Duathlon format has been changed to a Bike-Run format for logistical reasons.

Junior Tri Dash welcomes Pho3nix Foundation as major partner

Junior Tri Dash welcomes Pho3nix Foundation as major partner

The Junior Tri Dash, Thailand’s leading junior triathlon series will become the Pho3nix Kids Triathlon series in 2022, after inking a major partnership with the not-for-profit Pho3nix Foundation.

The five-race Pho3nix Kids Triathlon series spans from March through November 2022. The first event will kick off on 12 March 2022 at Bangpoo Golf & Sports Club, followed by the next race venue at Pattana Sports Resort. The season finale will be held on 19 November 2022 at Laguna Phuket, where the race will start off two days of activities as part of the legendary Laguna Phuket Triathlon.

The events will feature different race formats such as triathlon, duathlon and fun run. There will be beginner and advanced categories with race distances appropriate for the respective age groups and skill levels. Registration is now open. Click here to register.

Building on the success of the Junior Tri Dash, Pho3nix Kids will take junior triathlons in Thailand to the next level as well as opening up participation to more kids. Pho3nix Kids Triathlons aim to provide a fun and inclusive environment for kids as young as five to race and develop the core skills of swim, bike and run.  With Pho3nix Kids Triathlons already held in Poland, Switzerland, Spain and Australia, Thailand is now set to host the first event on the Asian continent.

Pho3nix Kids is a global initiative by the Pho3nix Foundation, a charitable foundation, founded in early 2020 by Polish businessman and philanthropist Sebastian Kulczyk.  The foundation’s vision is to create a worldwide legacy in which sport and activity are integral to the personal development of all young people, fostering a sense of purpose, focus and possibility that strengthens across generations. The event series are part of a whole range of educational initiatives aimed at giving children of all socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to be active and take part in sports. 

Pho3nix Foundation board member and MANA Sport and Entertainment CEO Chris McCormack is passionate about getting kids active and providing accessibility to sport. The four-time triathlon world champion says, “We are proud to be partnering with Junior Tri Dash to bring you a new look series in 2022 and expand our Pho3nix footprint into Thailand.”

McCormack, who is also a four-time triathlon world champion, added, “I lived in Thailand for six years and know there is a great passion for swim, bike and run in the community. That’s why I’m so excited to help deliver the Pho3nix program here and drive further participation for all kids.

“Equally, we want to be part of the pathways program for kids who want to develop their skills to whatever level they choose, and those inspired by the performances of all our elite athletes in Pho3nix Team.”

The program has expanded from Poland and has launched with dual Olympic medallist Nicola Spirig in Switzerland, dual Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee through the Brownlee Foundation in the UK, 7-time world champion Javier Gomez in Spain, and McCormack in Australia. 

More than 60,000 children have so far participated in Pho3nix Kids initiatives globally.
