Stellar field all primed up for TRI-Factor series
Multi-sport newbies, enthusiasts and veteran triathletes set out for a new challenge as they showcase their skills in swimming, biking and running in the TRI-Factor Asian Championship Series slated today at the CamSur Watersports Complex in Camarines Sur.
A big number of athletes, including a slew of rising and top triathletes in the region, are vying in the four-leg mass participation series composed of individual swim, bike and run events and a finale triathlon and staged to promote an active and healthy lifestyle, particularly among the youth.
The TRI-Factor has grown from organizing multi-sport events in Singapore to creating the premier short-course championship series across the Asian region with CamSur hosting the third leg of the Asian Series and it comes at a time when local triathlon is enjoying tremendous boom with top-notch events held regularly across the country the last few years.
Spicing up this weekend’s event is the participation of a number of celebrities, including noted triathlon campaigners Gerald Anderson and Ms. Earth-Air 2016 Michelle Gomez.
Anderson is vying in the sprint and fellow Team De Rosa mainstays. Gomez also did the “Freshmen” category in her triathlon debut.
The event, held in conjunction with the Kaogma Festival celebrations, also features a “Race to Give” project where TRI-Factor racers will get to award school supply kits to every indigenous child right after they finish the race as part of TRI-Factor’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
Meanwhile the host province, led by Gov. Migs Villafuerte, welcomed all the local and foreign participants at the race kit collection set last Saturday.
The awards rites will be held from 1PM to 3PM to be followed by the Let’s Party@Kaogma Festival bash.
