“Le Fruit Triathlon” is not only about the challenge of overcoming itself, it is rather about participating to a family-friendly celebration of off-road sports in Vietnam and bringing people from different skill levels, ages, and backgrounds together” – said Jean Luc Voisin, founder of “Le Fruit” and creator of “Le Fruit Triathlon”.
The Ho Coc Beach resort, located along the coastline and adjacent to the primitive forest of Ba Ria, will allow participants, friends and family to enjoy not only the Triathlon but also to appreciate the weekend on a “farniente” mode on the white sand beaches.
“Le Fruit Triathlon“, named after the local and sustainable fruit juice “Le Fruit“, and produced in collaboration with Pulse Active is committed to create an environmentally friendly event by reducing its carbon footprint and adopting sustainable practices; such as giving people the option of bringing their own containers instead of using plastic cups to create a sports event without waste.
