Teo Ser Luck, who was one of the founding member of Trifam (an Ironman) in 2004, gave an introductory speech..also sponsored 100+ & Tiger beer for the event.

event pics:


thoroughly enjoyable and the marshallers who were very encouraging and did their job well in terms of managing the traffic..no traffic wardens were hired for cost saving...very well done to the volunteers and organisers..

this race kicks off the season of biathlon and duathlon and triathlon races for 2012..

Yo bro, Russ..actually..these are triathletes that are experienced in local and overseas races..all are warming up for the Singapore Biathlon, Aviva Ironman 70.3 Singapore and IM events like Western Australia (early dec).. with some preparing for the coming one soon - IM NZ..

there are about 25 overseas competitors out of 130..the time you quoted..for sprint event..fast ones..some of us call this event..back to kindergarten.. but in actual fact..sprint tri event is a "youth Olympic standard" level..

just to add about the swim... sea bugs.."bite"...slight itchy discomfort..feeling like hand to scratch during swim..common..for open water swim..

    • Maybe uncle shares quantity of runs for monthly, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"...you shall start to see 10K+ participants joining for end-of-the-month.. you will notice... uncle is "catching" the top participants...mere HM and FM efforts to catch them...while almost 7,000 are "chasing" uncle... since uncle was previously ranked 3rd in April, so you will notice that for the month of May, uncle will be ranked negatively or postively from the absolute "3rd" position... Those that has sudden risen to the Top 10, look at the +1K or +308, uncle shall place these participants as "dubious", and will "monitor" and expect them if they will be still be competitive in May. They must be consistent, like uncle, otherwise, they are simply "flute" cases...meaning on non-run activities such as biking or boarding... This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the best runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...besides FM Virtual Races...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM from today to make the challenge "700KM" in May 21 a reality. You say you can do, show the results that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM" Monthly Challenge you can do...and sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be also "3rd Position" in May...because uncle will be disappointed to see "RED -ve" that is all...as motivational "push" factor 😃
    • that OSIM chair for SOH's use as gaming chair.. Well-Being Chair...SOH's for healthy lifestyle...gaming.  
    • what a photo that you managed to find after i mentioned on the gaming chair,.... hahaha
    • siong... it will take me a while to complete what u can complete in a month... hahah
    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
