Bintan 70.3

Bintan 70.3 will be staged on Sunday, August 23rd 2015. Bintan is an island in the Riau archipelago of Indonesia, renowned for its beauty.

This event has been running for some years under the auspices of Metaman who are Singapore based. World Triathlon Corp have bought in and revamped it, and it will be the first qualifier for next year’s Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Mooloolaba in September.

Check it out here.

It promises to be a great event – non-wetsuit, flat sea-water swim; gently undulating one lap, great road surface bike; and flat lap course (hot) run. Bintan is on the Equator!

Bob Martin is thinking of going & looking for some company!

There is varying resort style accommodation. Obviously, if Club members are considering, sharing and cost reduction is a possibility.

Scoot airlines fly Sydney to Singapore return for around $400.00-$500.00 + bike. Check them out here – Scoot. It is then a one hour ferry ride to Bintan & Shuttle (around $70.00 return), no visa for Singapore, $25.00 for visa on entry to Bintan.

“I have recently been to the Island – beautiful – and am very familiar with Singapore if we want an add-on extra after the event to put some ‘Tiger’ in the tank!” – Bob.
