OCEANMAN makes a triumphant return to Malaysian shores, bringing excitement to Pulau Redang, a stunning island renowned for its beauty.
From August 26-27, 2023, participants will have the chance to compete in various race categories, including the Oceanteams, Oceankids, Sprint, Half OCEANMAN, and the prestigious OCEANMAN race.
This international event is a first for Pulau Redang, known for its pristine waters, picturesque beaches, and vibrant marine life, making it a haven for snorkelers and divers.
With high expectations and the goal of establishing OCEANMAN Redang as a top destination in the world, organizers are thrilled to showcase Malaysia’s clear waters, rich culture, traditions, and delectable cuisine to swimmers from around the globe.
OCEANMAN Redang offers a range of race categories suitable for participants of all levels, making it an exciting event for friends and families to enjoy together. The choice of Pulau Redang as the venue is strategic, as the island is already a highly sought-after holiday destination in Malaysia.
Beyond its appeal to ocean lovers, Pulau Redang provides a tranquil escape for anyone seeking relaxation and rejuvenation away from the city. The island offers a diverse range of activities, including snorkeling, scuba diving, jungle trekking, turtle watching, sunset watching, stargazing, batik crafting, and a vibrant nightlife scene. Additionally, each resort on the island offers full boarding, including transportation to and from the jetty.
OCEANMAN Redang presents a tremendous opportunity for open-water swimming to flourish in Malaysia. The sport is gaining popularity, thanks to initiatives like monthly clinics and training sessions organized by Swimon, a swimming open specialist.
By participating in OCEANMAN Redang, swimmers can form new connections within the open-water swimming community and enjoy the health benefits that the sport offers, such as improved immune systems, blood circulation, and enhanced brain power.
The event aims to encourage more Malaysians to take up open-water swimming by showcasing its various health benefits and opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals. The organizers believe that OCEANMAN Malaysia will significantly boost and promote Redang Island in Terengganu as the ultimate destination to explore, inviting everyone to experience the beauty of Terengganu, its rich culture, captivating places, and friendly people.
