TRI-Factor Brings A Triathlon Race for ALL

Posted by on 4. May 2018

Triathlon has grown leaps and bounds over the past few years with more athletes adopting the swim, bike and run lifestyle.  TRI-Factor ushers in the next wave of growth with a triathlon event that’s friendly even to non-athletes who want to shift to the lifestyle. Come May 26-27, 2018, TRI-Factor would welcome both new and seasoned triathletes at Camsur Water Complex for a round of triathlon.

The growth of triathlon is the growth of fitness.  The advancement of triathlon in the Philippines started with the boom of running years back.  With running as an entry point and a lot of goals achieved, runners progressed into multisport athletes. Thousands of athletes started taking part in the various triathlon events in and out of the country.  It required 3 times the discipline and dedication because you had to train in all sports and even do brick workouts too.  Triathlon also has a step-ladder approach when it comes to training as you start with the shorter distances, then building up to the longer distances.  From a sport, it became a swim, bike and run lifestyle.

The fitness lifestyle makes us stronger and live better.  For people outside looking inside the world of triathlon, the sport can be intimidating.  TRI-Factor brings a friendlier distance for those who want to get their feet wet and venture into triathlon.

They have a freshmen distance of 200m swim-10 km bike-2 km run as well as a sprint distance of 740m swim-20km bike-5km run. They even have a kids triathlon of 100m swim-5km bike-1km run.  All these events happening on May 26, 2018.  They have the standard distance triathlon (individual and team relay – 1.5km swim-40km bike-10km run) and the long distance triathlon (individual and team relay – 1.5km swim-60km bike-15km run) on May 27, 2018.

“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. “This race series have categories for all capabilities and ages, starting from the kids triathlon all the way up to the long distance triathlon.”

TRI-Factor not only creates a competitive environment for the experienced ones, they also create a venue for the new breed of triathletes to be a part of the swim, bike and run lifestyle.  The freshmen and sprint level can be a good entry point for newbies and work on the progression from there.  Kids can also adopt to the sport at an early age with a category on their own.  The race in CWC is the Philippine Leg of the Asian Championship for 2018. There would be also legs in Singapore, China, Thailand and Malaysia.

    I always admire people who participate in triathlons. I love that this on encourages children to try a triathlon by offering a category just for them.

    We just had a friend who is in his 50’s who just did a trifactor last year. It is amazing how many people were there participating.

    This sounds pretty awesome. I don’t think I could do it. I am a terrible swimmer so I’d go down pretty quickly there.

    I give kudos to anyone that can do one of these! I think I would get a mile into the first part of this race and then just fall over! You do motivate me to exercise though and I love that!

    I have always admired triathletes for their dedication and perseverance. It’s nice to learn there are events available for those who may just be starting out or who are not professionals.

    My hat goes off to all people who participate in these events. I don’t think I could do it!

    Triathlon is something I don’t think I can do. That’s a hardcore stuff, only the strong ones can do it, like you.

    I’m not the triathlete type buy my daughter is. She needs to work on the swimming part.

    I wish I lived in the area to participate in this. I’m sure I wouldn’t make it to the end like you but it would be fun to try. I don’t know anyone who will be in the area that might want to participate but if I think of someone I’ll pass this along.

    My son has a bicycle. He might be interested in this. It might be pretty tough for him.
