A new destination event is added to the TriFactor’s Destination Tri Series, as it joins forces with BINTAN RESORTS and becomes the BINTAN TRIATHLON BY TRIFACTOR.

And it’s not only the name that’s changing, with the partners announcing that new triathlon categories will be added to the lineup, along with a century ride the very next day for cycling enthusiasts.
The news, announced on the 23 May 2023 , will see the new event as an inclusive festival open to all triathlon enthusiasts, no matter their level of experience.
Trifactor, the foremost triathlon and endurance sports brand in Singapore, in collaboration with Bintan Resorts, is delighted to announce their partnership in revitalizing the Bintan Triathlon Festival. This exciting event guarantees a weekend filled with races and festivities suitable for the entire family.

Mr Abdul Wahab, Group Manager, PT Bintan Resort Cakrawala, shared his hope that mass participation sporting events such as the Bintan Triathlon can spark a revival in tourism.
“We want people to enjoy both tourism and do their sport at the same time. Bintan has always been the ideal spot for sports tourism, having been gazetted by the Indonesian government for the past decade to do so. We have always been known for sports tourism…. We want mass participants to come here and enjoy their sports with their families and their communities. Secondly, we want to cater to a wider demographic of people – not just to elite athletes but even the young and old who are entry level to enjoy sport and an active lifestyle.
The team here has worked hard over the past 20 years to put Bintan on the world map as a sports tourism destination, and it is our hope that as part of this revival effort, we can put it back where it belongs for the next 20 years.”
In addition to the stellar lineup of events, Trifactor is proud to announce the signing of four ambassadors to represent the brand at the Bintan Triathlon Festival. These four ambassadors are Choo Ling Er, Arthur Tong, Elaine Young and Andy Wibowo.
