One of the most scenic sports events of the year is here.

After a successful rebrand, the Singapore T100 (formerly known as the PTO Asian Open) has unveiled its stunning course set to take place on April 13 and 14 in the heart of Marina Bay.

Whether it’s the T100 triathlon (2km swim/80km bike/18km run) or the shorter duathlon races (Standard – 45km run/32km cycle/4.5km run; Long – 9km run/64km cycle/9km run), professional and amateur athletes alike will find themselves surrounded by amazing views and landmarks of Singapore as they take on their respective races. Do note that a slight change from last year’s route will see the transition area for the duathlon races housed at the Promontory instead, adding an extra 500m to the run.

The route includes:

  • A 2km freshwater swim in Marina Bay – Competitors will set off in a rolling start format from the pontoon and large marker buoys will guide them around the Bay on a point-to-point swim. With a usual water temperature of 28°C, it is a non-wetsuit swim.
  • A challenging 80km cycle on closed roads – The multi-lap 16km circuit will start and finish at the Bayfront Event Space and take athletes up the famous Benjamin Sheares Bridge to give panoramic views of the city.
  • A flat 18km run on the waterfront promenade – Set against the world famous sights of Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Barrage, the fast run provides a scenic backdrop to complete the 100km journey.

Participants will also get to enjoy sea and city views atop the Marina Barrage and be able to catch a glimpse of iconic landmarks such as the Singapore Flyer, Fullerton Hotel and the ArtScience Museum. Roads along the route will be closed, allowing athletes to participate safely.

Sign-ups for the triathlon and duathlon are open.

Returning for its second edition, the Singapore T100 will again feature mass participation triathlon and duathlon races as well as a competitive 100km triathlon featuring some of the world’s top professional triathletes.

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 witness their favourite athletes in action live or cheer loved ones on up-close at spectator zones along the course.

Eventgoers can also find an array of activities at the event village. An array of stalls will be available giving participants and fans plenty of food and beverage options. Over 30 sports and lifestyle vendors will also have booths selling merchandise and quality sports gear. Kids also get to enjoy exciting activities such as basketball, mini golf and air hockey.

With something for everyone, the Singapore T100 is the place to be.
