It is staged to provide kids, multi-sport beginners, enthusiasts and veteran triathletes avenue to enhance their skills in swimming, biking and running.
Participants can actually take part in one or more events, giving them the opportunity to swim, bike or run or do all three to complete a triathlon.
“TRI-Factor is about building the eco-system of the sport of triathlon. It is about the inclusive and progressive nature of how we designed the race and about the people taking their first step into doing a triathlon,” said Elvin Ting, founder of TRI-Factor and managing director of the organizing Orange Room Pte. Ltd. “These race series have categories for all capabilities and ages, starting from the kid’s triathlon all the way up to the long distance triathlon.”
