GFNY expands in Asia with Krabi Thailand

September 13, 2022

GFNY Krabi is adding to races in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines and will take place on February 26, 2023

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series adds GFNY Krabi, scheduled for February 26, 2023. The competitive long distance is 135.4km long with 2115m of climbing. Start and finish will be hosted directly aside Krabi´s most famous, central and prominent beach: Ao Nang.

“GFNY’s expansion in Asia had been paused due to the pandemic but we’re back on track now with this spectacular new destination,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

“The GFNY events in South East Asia attract a much younger demographic compared to mass participation events in Europe or North America. Similar to Latin America, there is also a much higher percentage of women racing which is exciting.”

“In traditional cycling countries there is concern about the lack of young riders. Having held races in Asia since 2016 and seen the excitement for the sport, I have been confident ever since that the popularity of road cycling among young people there will ultimately extend back to Europe.”

Krabi, located in the southern west coast of Thailand, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand. It’s famous for stunning views, breathtaking beaches and islands, as well as being home to one of the most beautiful coral reefs around the world. Krabi also features some of the most photogenic sunsets in Thailand accompanied by spectacular cloud displays and dramatic limestone formations.

Krabi presents GFNY riders, families and friends a wide range of countless nature attractions, cultural activities, a variety of hotels and restaurants, fantastic cuisine and tourism options which will make the GFNY adventure of a lifetime.
