THANK YOU Race Organisers of the Samui Triathlon

Fred, Sofiantriathlete and Gerald (Race Director)


We, ten Triathletes from Malaysia that had paid the entry fee for the Samui Triathlon 2011, express our heartfelt thanks to the race organisers, Gerald and Fred for refunding to us the entry fee in cash (less Admin Fee) when we visited their office at Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui on 25 April 2011.


We saw their office, it had indeed been affected by the floods. They suffered significant personal loss because of the floods but they "still did the right thing in refunding the entry fee as they want everybody to return next year on 22 April 2012".


Unfortunately in Malaysia when something similar happened, we did not get the refund. So thank you Gerald and Fred.



On a personal level, we the Malaysian Triathletes urge everyone to come for the Triathlon on 22 April 2012. We should support the sport of Triathlon that we love so much. We should support the kind Race organisers. We should support the wonderful warm people of Thailand.


Regards and best wishes


Sofian

Hello. I keep on writing the koh samui triathlon organisation but they don't reply. I want to participate in the race and I want to know if it is possible to rent a good bike because I'm having troubles bringing my own. I'm living in and traveling from Denmark. Do you know anything?
Hope to hear from you.

Hi Johnsen

Their e-mail is gerald.iacono@free.fr

I did not see any bicycle shops there. I only saw Mountain bikes, so you have to bring your own bike.

Call them. If you cannot contact them, don't go. Last year a lot of unhappiness. I think they only refund to my group because we went to their office.

Last year very bad flood on the island. So race cancelled.

e-mail me if you want
