Filipino Triathletes to compete against the best of the best at the 2018 TRI-Factor Asian Championship

Triathlon, one of the fastest growing sport in the world and especially in local shores. The sport has experienced an explosive growth because millennials are not just watching triathlon races but are actually joining in. Like any other fitness enthusiast, Miss Earth Air 2016-Michelle Gomez, is joining TRI-Factor for the first time. 

Put up to provide multi-sport beginners, enthusiasts and veteran triathletes – even kids – a venue to hone their talent and skills in swimming, biking and running, the TRI-Factor have grown from organizing multi-sport events in Singapore to creating the premier short-course championship series across the Asian region.


Founded in 2009, TRI-Factor is aimed at building a community and culture of Asian athletes racing with the region with its short distances and secured courses allowing beginners to master swimming, cycling and running and prepare them for the regular triathlon events.

Each TRI-Factor race finish gives athletes points counting toward a year-end ranking. For the Asian Championship series, each race will be assigned a Race Course index depending on the degree of difficulty where points awarded will be multiplied with the index, allowing athletes to rack up bigger points at the tougher races.


Local triathlon gets further boost as top Asian multisport brand, TRI-Factor holds the third leg of its Asian Championship Series in Camarines Sur in May with a slew of rising and leading triathletes in the region expected to see action.

The Asian Championship 2018 series will kick off in Singapore on April 22 then to China on May 13 before action shifts to the Phl on May 25-27 at Camsur Watersports Complex in Camarines Sur.

"Tri-Factor's coming to the Philippines would be a great opportunity and new challenge for the newbies to engage in triathlon and pioneer triathletes to take the opportunity of racing in other parts of Asia especially in China under a different triathlon format. I'm looking forward to be in both the Philippine and China legs of Tri-Factor and I am really excited to go back to CWC, which is a great venue for a triathlon," shared Taguig Congresswoman and triathlete Pia Cayetano, upon learning about Tri-Factor's arrival in the Philippines.

“We’re pleased to announce the TRI-Factor Asian Championship series with new races in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and China. Our purpose is to provide our athletes diverse race options throughout the year, catering to the specific needs of the athletes across Asia,” said Elvin Ting, manager director of organizing Orange Room Pte Ltd.
