The Singapore International Triathlon (SIT) is Singapore’s pioneer triathlon event. Established in 1984, it was launched in an era when triathlons and endurance sports in general were largely unknown in Asia. From the first local triathlon held by the National University of Singapore (NUS) in its campus, it evolved into an international event two years later with a wide diversity of athletes participation from multiple countries including Malaysia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.
