13 Jan Singapore’s favourite multi-sport challenge returns
The inaugural MetaSprint Series Singapore campaign has just been launched by local event specialists MetaSport. Since inception 7 years ago the Aquathlon, Duathlon and Triathlon has grown to become a Singapore favourite with over 6,000 participants in 2014 and an expected 6,500 next year.
Whether a professional athlete or just testing the waters of multi-sport, this series has an event suitable for everyone from 8-99 years of age; male or female. There is even kids and discovery categories for the real newbies.
Still not a contender? MetaSport also provides training clinics and coaching services for everyone from beginners all the way to the pro’s who want a little more special attention and guidance.
Managing Director Nathalie Marquet explains she “believes the series is going from strength to strength because we work hard with the local community, authorities and businesses to respond to the demands of the modern Singaporean interested in sport and a healthy lifestyle.”
“We strive to make this event fun and obtainable to everyone who participates, however, we always ensure that we run the event with the utmost professionalism. Safety, security and a seamless experience, are the most important factors to consider.” said Ms Marquet.
Ms Marquet further explains how the event epitomises the MetaSport philosophy.
“The MetaSprint Series epitomises how we run our own business – with a commitment to excellence and the local Singaporean community. This event encourages a healthy way of life and an open and collaborative community spirit; we are very proud to be in support of these values.”
The Triathlon is preceded by an Aquathlon and Duathlon earlier in the year – all three part of the same series. The format is designed to convert recreational runners, cyclists or general exercisers to multi-sport in an unintimidating manner; as well as offering them a fresh challenge. The race schedule – spreading across February, March and April – allows beginners to build up their fitness and confidence levels progressively over a four-month period until they feel ready to complete the final sprint Triathlon.
The series made its debut in 2008 as a first of its kind race event. MetaSprint has since continued to gain traction from a growing enthusiasm in Triathlon and endurance sports within Singapore. Its format has been unique in attracting both first-timers and Singapore’s best triathletes, who use it as an opportunity to hone their skills for longer races later in the season.
Those raring enough to take part in all three races will accumulate points after each leg, which will be used to determine the respective series’ champion of each age group.
