Add-on Races

Bintan Swim Classic 1000

Kick start your weekend with a competitive swim in the beautiful bay off Nirwana Gardens. This 1km swim is the perfect length to fine tune yourself for the next day’s triathlon, and possibly set a personal best over the distance! All abilities are encouraged to enter. Friday 16:00

The Fun Duo Challenge is a great way to introduce beginners and the younger kids to the sport of triathlon where distances are shorter and the fun element, higher. Get your friends, family, colleagues or anyone else to partner up with you to register for the challenge.

Teams of 2 have to complete the run + swim legs, and race to the finish piggyback style. Prizes will be given out to teams displaying “outstanding” style, strategy and teamwork and the best finish!

Race Format

      • The race will start with a 1.5 km run, followed by a 150m swim and a piggyback dash to the finish.
      • Both team members have to complete the run, swim legs and the final dash.
      • Both team members have to start each leg together. The one that arrives first, must wait for the other before starting the next leg.
      • The team with the most exciting and creative finish through the finish line will win.
