Jumping into the Next Triathlon Adventure: Challenge Iskandar Puteri + Ironman Taiwan
The next two races in this very busy 2017 season will take Laurel to Malaysia and Taiwan (via Hong Kong & Singapore). First up is Challenge Iskandar Puteri a half iron distance race. The race takes place in and around southern Malaysia's Puteri Harbour Marina, a 20 minute drive from Singapore. The run course winds through Hello Kitty Land, Lego Land, and a Thomas the Train theme park.
After a few days of recovery (maybe checking out one of those parks?), Laurel heads to Penghu, Taiwan to take on the full Ironman distance on October 1. The bike course traverses various islands in the Taiwan Strait. If there's a moment to sightsee during the race, Laurel might be able to catch the beautiful beaches and Taiwanese temples that the region is known for.
