Race the Lion City and usher in 33 years of triathlon-racing in Singapore. Singapore’s pioneer triathlon event is back – The Singapore International Triathlon 2017! Save the date, start your training, and SWIM-BIKE-RUN on the 10th September 2017.
About Singapore International Triathlon
SIT established back in 1984, in an era where triathlons and endurance sport were generally unknown in Asia. Just swimming or running is already tough enough on its own, doing a trio of swim-bike-run was taking endurance sport to a whole new level. The triathlon sport became a HIT! Today, SIT has become a world class international event, attracting world class athletes from all around the world. Elite triathletes eyeing for coveted Championship titles show up at the East Coast Park to challenge themselves and give their competitors a good run for their money.
The event boasts warm and calm water, a scenic location, a well marked course and the arguably the best friendliest volunteers. It promises participants a memorable triathlon racing experience from start to finish.
