Batam Triathlon – just what the doctor ordered

Batam Triathlon – just what the doctor ordered

If you are tired of the city, bored with bike laps through East Coast Park, dreaming of an epic triathlon course, in dire need to get your partner’s buy-into your hobby or desperate to peel your kids away from their screens to get some healthy outdoor play – we have got the remedy for you!


Just like its predecessor, the Batam Triathlon has all the ingredients for a fantastic triathlon and quick holiday getaway, and here is why.


Nongsa is your new triathlon haven 

Dive off a palm fringed white sand beach in a tropical sea with aquarium like swimming conditions: excellent visibility, no swell or current and a balmy 28C water temperature. Then, jump on your bike for an exciting and rolling course through the resort’s gardens and past scenic golf courses and vibrant villages. Run on winding paths through the resort with resident support all the way and finish on the picturesque waterfront at sunset*. The transition and festival area, located right next to the beach, is arguably the most scenic triathlon venue you’ll find in Asia.

Quick and easy travel

It takes only 30 minutes by high-speed ferry from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Nongsa. No need to pack your bike, just roll it on the ferry. 

And if you can’t make the Nongsa ferry timings work for you, you have other options. There are many more ferries arriving at Batam Centre, which is a short, 20-minute drive from Nongsa. 

Also Indonesia-based athletes can rejoice with numerous domestic flights from all over the country frequenting Batam airport daily. A 15-minute drive will get you from the airport to Nongsa.


5-Star race venue

Focus on enjoying yourself and not on logistics. When staying at the comfortable and affordable Nongsa Resorts you are in prime position for a stress-free weekend and race experience. All event activities are conveniently within walking distance. But even if you choose to stay at one of the other resorts in the Nongsa area, it is a mere minutes drive or bike ride to get to the race start. Now that’s what we call a 5-Star race venue.


Partner and family friendly

The Batam Triathlon has an event for everyone, from the competitive and epic Olympic Distance, to the more beginner-friendly Sprint, Youth and Kids races and the fun-tastic Fun Duo Challenge.

And if you still can’t convince your entourage to partake in all this ‘triathlon madness’, there is always plenty of leisure at the beach, spa and kids club to keep them entertained. They may even give you a cheer while lounging in the pool, which is conveniently located along the run course. 


Sociable and festive

The stress-fee arrangement, soothing environment and vibrant race venue set the scene for an unparalleled relaxed and festive atmosphere. The abundant time spent with your friends, family and fellow-athletes creates strong bonds and the shared experience provides lasting memories. 


Batam booster 

If you have extra time on your hands, there are plenty of reasons to stay on for a day. Go for a round of golf, a bike ride beyond the scenic Barelang Bridge, enjoy local delights and hunt for bargains in Batam city, visit one of the many spas or simply enjoy an extra day of leisure at your resort.
