Official press release for the Dili international marathon and the Tour de Timor. For Immediate distribution, dated 11 August 2017.

José Ramos-Horta thanked representatives of Timor Telecom for their support for the Dili International Marathon and the Tour de Timor.

The in-kind sponsorship from Timor Telecom will provide vital communications through the generous donation of $35,000 USD of phone credit, 200 phones with Sim cards and ten internet wifi devices. As well as the in-kind sponsorship Timor Telecom has included the invaluable SMS texting service informing residents of the events and consequent road closures.

Talking about the upcoming race the President of the Noble Timor’s Board said: “The 2017 Tour de Timor is an auspicious occasion for Noble Timor. This year we are re-invigorating the international events and planning ahead to next year already. I wish to praise Timor Telecom’s support of the ninth Tour de Timor and their ongoing commitment to the events. Following this year’s incredibly successful elections, which were conducted 100% by Timorese organizers, the continuation of peace and stability in Timor-Leste is a reality. The International Events this year will showcase our amazing country overseas and continue to push the case that the time for Timor-Leste is now. Thank you and God bless you.”

Manuel Joaquim Capitão Amaro, the Country Director for Timor Telecom, said “Timor Telecom is once again delighted and honored to support the events of the Dili Marathon and the Tour de Timor 2017, this year with the support of telecommunications facilities and merchandising acquisition. Sport and the encouragement of stability and peace in Timor-Leste are also a concern to Timor Telecom and deserve our full support. I also take this chance to congratulate the Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Dr. José Ramos Horta who this year will head once again these two events and we are sure that it will have the same success as the previous years.”

The Tour de Timor is between the 19th and 23rd of September. Over 5 days riders will travel over 500 Kms and 10,000 meters of climbs making the event one of Asia’s most famous MTB races and one of the toughest endurance events in the world.
