Multisport newbies, enthusiasts, and veteran triathletes set out for a new challenge as they showcased their skills in swimming, biking and running in the TRI-Factor Asian Championship Series earlier today at the Camsur Watersports Complex.
A big number of athletes in the region are vying in the four-leg mass participation series composed of individual swim, bike, and run events, and a finale triathlon staged to promote an active and healthy lifestyle particularly among the youth.
The TRI-Factor has grown from organizing multisport events in Singapore to creating the premier short-course championship series across the Asian region with CamSur hosting the third leg of the Asian Series and it comes at a time when local triathlon is enjoying tremendous boom with top notch events held regularly across the country the last few years.
Spicing up this weekend’s event is the participation of celebrity Gerald Anderson and Ms Earth Air 2016 Michelle Gomez.
Anderson did the sprint and fellow Team De Rosa mainstays. Gomez finished her Freshmen distance triathlon debut on Saturday afternoon.
The event held in conjunction with the Kaogma Festival celebration featured a “Race to Give” project where TRI-Factor racers get to award school supply kits to every indigenous child right after they finish the race as part of TRI-Factor’s corporate social responsibility.
Host province led by Gov. Migs Villafuerte, welcomed all participants during the race kit collection.
Action also heated up today with the TRI-Factor long and standard distance triathlon slated from 6:30 AM to 12 noon and the TRI-Factor sprint distance triathlon set from 7 AM to 11 AM. The awards rites will be held from 1 PM to 3 PM to be followed by the Let’s Party@Kaogma Festival bash.
