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. Through the years, the number of participants has grown steadily. The race distances of 2km swim, 65km bike and 16km run, were also changed to the widely accepted Olympic distance. During this time, local sportsmen have also achieved elite competitive status
through better knowledge in training and sports conditioning. Today, the SIT has become one of the most highly-anticipated, international sports
events in Singapore. Co-organised by Triathlon Association of Singapore and Orange Room Pte Ltd, the event has attracted up to 3,000 triathletes from countries such as Philippines, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, France, Spain, USA, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia, who vied for various coveted championship titles, including the Asian Championship. Held at the East Coast Park, this is a great opportunity for participants to Race the Lion City. The event boasts warm and calm water, scenic location, well-marked course and friendly volunteers, promising a memorable racing experience for all to enjoy from the starting to the finishing line.

This year’s Singapore International Triathlon 2017 will see Singapore’s top triathletes
competing against one another in the National Championships category. Every triathlete
will be racing hard to be crowned national champions, with ITU points given to the top 5
triathletes. With this being a sprint distance race instead of the olympic standard
distance, it is going to be a very exciting Sunday with the juniors pitting against the
seniors in the familiar settings of East Coast Park, you will see the battle between the
While Christy Suriadi, Bryce Chong and Nicholas Rachmadi have already been selected
for the XXI Commonwealth Games, this National Championships will need to find 3 more
triathletes for TAS nominations to SNOC to fill up the remaining 1 men and 2 women
slots. Look out for bronze medallist Clement Chow and Wille Loo who finished a close 4th
behind Clement in the recent SEA Games, also not forgetting Zac Low, a confirmed
contender in the 2018 Asian Games. These 3 will be putting up their best for this 1 slot.
Winona Howe’s withdrawal from this race due to an unfortunate injury has kept the
options open with Phoebe Kee and Ethel Lin amongst the favourites now fighting for the
2 women nomination spots.
Will we see the favourites dominating again this Sunday or will we see surprises? With
elite starts comprising of 13 men and 5 women, this category will be the highlights of

Davao is an anchor tourist destination and one of the 7,107 times more islands that make up the Philippine archipelago. It is a natural haven for both sedate and daring pursuits.
Davao, on the southeastern seaboard of Mindanao is attracting more tourists because of its rich culture, abundant natural resources, forests, wildlife sanctuary and the imposing presence of Mt. Apo, (the tallest mountain in the country). Davao City limits sprawl over 224,000 hectares, among the largest in the world, leaving ample space for environmentally friendly expansion and development.
After Luzon and Visayas, IRONMAN sets foot in Mindanao with this addition to extend its presence across all three island groups of the Philippines.Davao City has continuously grown and developed infrastructure over the years to become one of the most popular touristic destinations in the Philippines. Athletes will have an easy journey to the start line through Davao international airport with direct flights from Manila, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, and will have a wide selection of world-class hotels to enjoy their stay in Davao, located on the East coast of Mindanao island in the Philippines.
“It is always exciting for us to announce the addition of a new event – especially in the Philippines where the enthusiasm of the IRONMAN community is exceptional. We launched IRONMAN Philippines on August 1st and sold out all entries in one day. We hope for such a tremendous response as we open registrations of IRONMAN 70.3 Davao on October 1st.” IRONMAN Asia Managing Director Geoff Meyer said.
The participants will enjoy racing through Davao’s fusion of nature and urban infrastructure. The race begins with a one-loop swim at the beautiful property development of Azuela Cove where they will go back for their first transition. They will then exit onto the main highway to start the 90km bike course. The fast, single loop bike course heads all the way to the turnaround point at Tagum City. Participants will then head back to Azuela Cove for the second transition. They exit out to the flat roads of J.P. Laurel Avenue towards the commercial district of Davao to complete the two-loop 21.1km run. Participants will be cheered by a crowd of spectators lining up along the streets until the finish line at the Azuela Soccer Field.
“We at Sunrise Events are excited to be offering a brand-new race in another part of the country next year.Davao will be our next destination for an IRONMAN 70.3 race and we believe this will be well received by local and foreign triathletes alike. We are encouraged by the enthusiasm Davao has expressed in hosting us there and I expect we will see this race steadily grow.We look forward to seeing you all at a new destination.” said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, President of Sunrise Events
IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Qualifying Race

When I first started my career in triathlon, I got to a certain level by training with my buddies, in groups and non-structured environments. I then left for a while and came back with a whole new attitude. I found a coach I liked and really appreciated his ideas. So I committed myself to the training. I rarely trained with people. Eighty-five to 90 percent of the training I did alone, which worked for me. So if I were climbing a hill and my heart rate spiked, I’d walk up the hill. This created self-confidence. I came out and won my first race by training alone, which was Wildflower, a tough course.
2. Do drills
People neglect cycling and running drills. I did them. So on race day I would lose as little fitness as possible. I could be more efficient, not really falling apart halfway through the marathon because of the training drills. The reality is you should be doing drills all the time, year in and year out. I was different than a lot of pros by doing that.
Don’t train for general fitness. I think I was one of the first to train on the Big Island. I trained in the heat and learned the currents of the water. When I did Wildflower, I’d incorporate rides and runs similar to that course. I found out the course had lots of trails and hills, so I thought, okay, I need to run hills and train specific to that course.
4. Put yourself in pain
This one is kind of sadistic. I always had this problem of my stomach shutting down during the marathon of an Ironman. So I thought if I could run with my stomach shutting down, I could do it in a race. So once a week I would sit down and eat nachos with really spicy hot sauce. Then I’d get my running gear on, go for a run and of course, my stomach would shut down, but I’d just keep going. They were brutal training runs. But then on race day, when my stomach would shut down I’d think, “I can deal with this.” I’d be able to keep going. Doing this paid off so many times over. I’d do this 10 weeks out from Ironman until two weeks before race day. It’d be a horrible run, but it had a huge impact on my overall race performance.
5. Spend the dough
I see this with a lot of age-groupers. They spend so much time and effort training for an Ironman and they don’t bother to get new tires or get a tune-up. Get new tires. Get a new chain if you need it. You’ve invested so much time, just pay the couple of extra bucks. Don’t cheap out. It’s worth the extra expense.
6. Get out of shape
I got this piece of advice from Paula Newby-Fraser and it was one of the best things I have heard. She told me, “Peter, you can have a great short career or you can have a great long career. But you need to take time to leave the sport behind you.” Basically, you need to get out of shape to get back into shape. You need to physically and mentally recharge. You need to become a non-athlete. Don’t eat healthy. It hurts your fitness, sure, but it makes for a better long-term career. Mark Allen did this and it worked for him. Doing this prepares your body for another season. It was so easy for me to do this because two legends told me they did it. It felt like a part of the puzzle of being pro.
7. Don’t workout when sick
I see so many athletes tinker with their workouts when they are sick. Don’t. Take the day off.
8. Know your body
If you head out the door and your knee hurts, don’t push through it because then all of a sudden you’re injured and you are out. Stop exercising and take a couple of days off rather than be out a couple of weeks.

Century Tuna IRONMAN Subic Bay, Philippines is the newest race to be added to the growing Philippine triathlon scene.
About Subic Bay, Philippines
About Subic Bay, Philippines
Bounded on three sides by a mountain range, and endowed with a deep natural harbor, Subic Bay was once the home base of the U.S. naval forces in the Pacific. It was America’s largest naval installation outside the United States, until it was turned over to the Philippine government in 1992.
All that sand and sea have not gone to waste, as Subic Bay is now a premier holiday destination for visitors from all over the world. They come for its pristine beaches, first-rate amenities and friendly services. In fact the waters and beaches of Subic Bay feature attractions for all types of folks: miles of fine sand and calm waters for beach lovers and picnickers, spectacular corals and underwater fauna for divers and snorkelers, mysterious sunken wrecks for history aficionados, and even choice spots for a relaxing afternoon of fly fishing.
But there’s more to Subic Bay than sun-drenched shores. Its blessed location at the foothills of the Zambales mountain range has given it lush tracts of preserved tropical forest, which have become favorite venues for eco-tourism activities and sports events. U.S. Marines used to hone their jungle-survival skills in these mountains, trained by local indigenous people called the Aetas who have learned to live in harmony with their natural environmen
The inaugural Century Tuna IRONMAN Philippines will aim to build upon the successes of the Century Tuna IRONMAN 70.3 Subic Bay and provide athletes with a challenging, yet beautiful course to tackle. Athletes will begin their IRONMAN journey with a one-loop, 3.8km ocean swim in the calm, pristine waters of Triboa Bay, starting and finishing at ACEA Resort which will also play host to the first of the split transition areas. Once onto their bikes, athletes will head out of Subic Bay and onto the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) for a fast and flat two-loop, 180km ride which will bring riders back into the T2 at Remy Field in downtown Subic Bay. The 42.2km, two-loop marathon run will take in some of the best coastal views that the area has to offer and will be a buzz of energy with local supporters lining the streets to cheer the athletes home.
Registration is set to open on August 1, 2018 at www.ironman.com/philippines.
