The Bintan Triathlon, Indonesia, May 21-22

May 5, 2010 – 3:33 pm

will take place the weekend of 21 and 22 May 2010 at the Nirwana Gardens on Bintan Island in Indonesia’s Riau Islands, just south of Singapore. Triathletes of all levels and countries can join the weekend of fun-filled activities and participate in one of the region’s most festive and vibrant triathlons.

Organised by Tribob, the Bintan Triathlon 2010 will be staged on a scenic yet challenging course in Bintan Island. Race participants will start the course with a swim at the picturesque beaches off Nirwana Beach Club, followed by a bike ride through to the undulating hills of the island and a shaded run in the greenery of Nirwana Gardens.

Now in its sixth year, organisers are expecting a crowd of 1,400 participants across all categories. The event started in 2005 with 480 participants and has seen a steady annual increase to 1,200 race participants from 37 different countries last year. While most participants make it a holiday weekend; the day-trip option from Singapore is available for the most budget-conscious athletes.
