We are very pleased to announce that Indofood IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan was recently awarded as Asia’s BEST overall long course triathlon, BEST triathlon run course, and BEST family-friendly race by AsiaTri, Asia’s triathlon media authority, triumphing over 48 races.
Only in its 3rd year, IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan has already established itself as a top-ranking, must-do destination race in Asia. Also voted as 2017’s BEST triathlon run course, and in 2016 voted BEST long course swim and bike course by AsiaTRI, the event’s award-winning course treats athletes to a spectacular island course and fantastic racing experience.
The enhanced IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan run course in 2017 definitely elevated the athlete’s race experience, and was even hailed BEST in Asia. The 2-lap run is mostly flat and winds through manicured gardens, the man-made Lagoi Bay and topped off with a festive run surrounded by cheering spectators.
The beautiful Bintan island in Indonesia offers a wide variety of hotels and activities ideal for kids and spectators. The island is accessible from Singapore by ferry and a short direct flight from Jakarta, making bringing family and friends convenient.
