The corona crisis has affected all of us, some more directly than others. The event industry has been hit especially hard. It is the first to shut down and will probably take the longest to recover. For events to keep going ahead in the future, it needs all the support it can get right now.
You can show your support for the ‘Bike Zone Tri Dash Bangkok’ by signing up to join the next race on 2 August 2020.
If you can’t join there are other ways to support the event. By signing up to race virtually if you cannot make it to the physical race. Our 2020 event merchandise is also available for sale online. Many athletes also chose to pay forward an entry to another athlete who currently cannot afford the entry fee. More info on that below.
We really do hope that the tri community will rally behind us and support Thailand’s longest running grass root triathlon series. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
If you cannot make it to the physical race on 2 August, you can still race the Dash virtually. There will be three race categories that you can choose from: Mini Dash, Standard Dash distance, or Long Dash distance. We will start sending out your race entitlements by post mail from 4 August on wards (*shipping only within Thailand).
Record your swim, bike and run times for the required distance. You may use a bike smart trainer or real bike performance for your bike time and a treadmill or real run performance for your run.
Some of our athletes and fans have kindly sponsored entries into the August race for athletes who currently cannot afford the entry because of the situation. As of now there are 10 entries available and more people are joining the initiative. If you would like to take advantage of one of these entries please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request one. There are no conditions attached to requesting one of these entries. Many people are experiencing difficult times financially right now so hopefully a free entry into the race will help. Perhaps one day you can pay this kindness forward to somebody else.
For those who want to sponsor an entry for somebody else, simply enter for the race online and then contact us to let us know that this entry is available to be transferred.
