If triathlons are your thing then the annual TRI-Factor Triathlon is for you.
Organised by local events company Orange Room and sponsored by big names like The Swimming Room, Dermalogica, TIMEX and Hewlett Packard, TRI-Factor is an annual triathlon series comprising running, swimming and cycling. The individual sports have their own races over 3 months as a build-up to the final triathlon event.
Athletes are not only pushed to the limits but also get a chance to take in the sights and sounds of the islands as they swim from the southern island of Sentosa to biking across the greenery-lined eastern Changi route and running to the Singapore's northern region of Punggol and a sprint towards the finish line at the East Coast Park.
A showcase of the benefits of a multi-sports lifestyle, it encourages participation from people with differing fitness and experience levels and is designed so that everyone can join. This includes the introduction to new categories like the Kids Race and Cross Company Challenge Triathlon.
Other attractions include live bands, beach clean-ups, sports massages, booths and more.
