Founded in 2009, TRI-Factor has grown from organizing local multisport events in Singapore to creating the premier short-course championship series across the Asian region. TRI-Factor aims to build a community and culture of Asian athletes racing within the region, with its short distances and secured courses allowing multisport beginners to master swimming, cycling, and running and grow into fully realized triathletes.
Each TRI-Factor race finish gives athletes TRI-Factor points counting toward a year-end ranking where the top-ranked athlete is awarded the series championship crown. For the 2018-2019 TRI-Factor Asian Championship, each race will be assigned a Race Course Index depending on the degree of difficulty. Points awarded will be multiplied with this Race Course Index, allowing athletes to rack up bigger points at the tougher races.
Athletes can now also target more awards, such as Series Asian Champions, Best Country Athlete of the Year, Best Country Junior Athlete of the Year, Best Veteran Country Athlete of the Year, Top First-Timer Athlete, and Top First-Timer Junior Athlete. Companies and triathlon clubs can also get on the board with the Club Challenge and Corporate Challenge which has country and regional categories.
Athletes can also accumulate TRI-Factor points from all regional TRI-Factor races over this two-year period to attain TRI-Factor Asian Championship Athlete (T.A.C.A.) status. This will allow them to enjoy greater benefits within the TRI-Factor community and beyond.
For example, to attain the Elite TACA level an athlete must accumulate a minimum of 3,000 points. Elite TACA level will entitle the athlete to complimentary entry to one local and one overseas race, free two nights’ accommodation, two-way airport transfer, and welcome dinner at the overseas race, placement in the first wave at all races, up to 40% discount with TRI-Factor sponsors and partners, special invitation to events, and concierge service.
