Bintan Resorts is bringing back the Bintan Triathlon by Trifactor in 2023 after a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The sporting event is in collaboration with TriFactor Asia, a brand by Orange Room, and Singapore’s foremost triathlon and endurance sports brand.
Set against the scenic backdrop of Lagoi Bay, Bintan, this renowned event is scheduled to take place on October 21, inviting athletes from around the globe to participate in various competitions such as a sprint distance triathlon, an Olympic distance triathlon, an Enduro distance triathlon, and the Kids Splash & Dash.
A Century Ride competition for cycling enthusiasts will also be introduced on October 22.
“We are beyond excited to bring this event back to Bintan after a long absence,” said Abdul Wahab, group general manager, Bintan Resorts. “We look forward to working closely with TriFactor in organising this much anticipated revival event and welcoming back international and local triathletes to this race on the Triathlon calendar.”
Elvin Ting, managing director and founder of Orange Room, shared: “The island’s extensive coastline, well-maintained roads, and exceptional infrastructure create an ideal training ground for athletes, ensuring their safety, enjoyment, and inspiration. Working closely with the National Federation, we have endeavoured to bring the youth into this triathlon and cycling event too.”
Supporting the event are ambassadors for the Bintan Triathlon by TriFactor, such as Arthur Tong and Elaine Young, founders of Singapore’s largest triathlon club, alongside Choo Ling Er, Singapore’s Fastest Ironman Woman, Andy Wibowo, a former Indonesian Swimmer turned triathlete and more.
