Going into the Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) Asian Open 2023, reigning men’s
Olympic triathlon champion Kristian Blummenfelt had never clinched a PTO title – until he
crossed the finish line at Marina Bay and crumpled with relief and elation.
Come April 12-14, sports fans can go through the same emotions as Blummenfelt and race like a professional athlete when they take on the exact same 100km (2km swim, 80km bike, 18km run) course at the T100 race for amateurs. This includes a freshwater swim in Marina Bay, a rare chance for experienced open water swimmers to experience swimming in the bay.
The route will also likely take triathletes past iconic landmarks in the Marina Bay area, including Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer and the ArtScience Museum. Athletes will also see themselves cycling up the famous Benjamin Sheares Bridge, while enjoying a stunning view of the city. Roads along the route will be closed, allowing athletes to participate safely. For those who prefer not to swim, fret not. You can still join the fun and be part of the action.
Besides the 100km triathlon, the Singapore T100 also offers two duathlon events for amateurs – Standard (4.5km run, 32km bike, 4.5km run) and Long (9km run, 64km bike, 9km run). If tackling such long distances sounds lonely or daunting, you can also opt for the triathlon or duathlon relays for some extra fun with friends. Whether you’re new to triathlon or a seasoned competitor, there’s something for everyone and the Singapore T100 is the perfect event for fitness enthusiasts to challenge themselves and scale new heights.
Spectators will also be treated to two days of exhilarating live sporting action. Following the
success of the inaugural edition in 2023 – which saw over 6,000 participants – the Singapore T100 pro races will also return bigger and better. Will Singapore T100 women’s world No. 1 Anne Haug get the better of defending champion Ashleigh Gentle? Will two-time Olympic men’s triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee make his Singapore T100 debut after an ankle injury ruled him out of most of the 2023 PTO season?
With a multi-lap course for each leg of the race, the Singapore T100 is the place to be for a
front-row seat to world-class triathlon action. Spectators can line themselves almost anywhere along the course – for free – to witness their favourite athletes in action live or cheer their loved ones on up-close.
Event Goers can also find an array of activities at the event venue, Bayfront Event Space with booths selling merchandise and sports gear as well as multiple food and beverage options. With the best of triathlon and exciting fringe activities on offer, the Singapore T100 2024 promises to be a fun-filled event for all.
