After a tool long two-year hiatus (curse you, COVID-19), the highly anticipated Ironman 70.3 competition will take place in Desaru Coast on 23 and 24 July, welcoming triathletes from all over the world to the picturesque coastal town in Johor.
If you’re a triathlete who also enjoys the finer things in life, then you need to know that One&Only Desaru Coast is taking their resort experience one step further with Bonfire Legends — a curated series of private evenings that brings guests unique views from innovators and game-changers across diverse professions, as they mingle around the bonfire beneath the twinkling night sky.
As a special treat for its debut, the upscale resort will host Azran Osman-Rani for an exclusive interview on 22 July, just before the race. Guests at the resort will have the pleasure of Osman-Rani’s company as he recounts his incredible journey from receiving head injuries and many limb fractures after being struck by a car while preparing for the 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championships to racing in the event only six months later.
Osman-Rani, CEO and Co-founder of Naluri, a digital health start-up focused at making mental and physical healthcare accessible to all, will share his uplifting story of triumph over hardship around a bonfire before competing in the 2022 Ironman 70.3 in Desaru Coast, where he must complete a 1.9km open-water swim, a 90km cycle ride, and a 21.1km run.
One&Only Desaru Coast is offering a unique package for the race weekend that starts at RM3,031 a night and includes one free daily activity per guest, breakfast for two adults, and an invitation to the Bonfire Legends event on 22 July, 2022. You won’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet one of Malaysia’s most prominent speakers.
