PTO Announces Official Travel Partners for PTO Asian Open
March 9, 2023
Singapore /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has announced Tri Travel, Hannes Hawaii Tours, Nirvana Europe, Shanghai Triathlon Club (STC) and Waypoint as its official travel partners for the PTO Asian Open in Singapore, 19-20 August.
The five agencies will provide travel packages for the amateur 100km races around the iconic Marina Bay course as well as a range of soon-to-be-announced additional multisport opportunities that will give the chance for more amateur and everyday sports enthusiasts to get involved over the weekend.
PTO CEO Sam Renouf said: “We’re excited to partner with Tri Travel, Hannes Hawaii Tours, Nirvana Europe, STC and Waypoint on the inaugural PTO Asian Open and know that our athletes will be in safe hands with some of the most experienced travel operators in the sport. With general registrations selling out for the experienced amateur 100km race, booking through our travel partners is the only way you can still register a slot on the start line for that race. This expansion of official travel partners comes on the back of our successful partnership with Nirvana Europe in 2022, who had 130 athletes travelling to attend the Collins Cup weekend in Samorin.”
Travel packages for the PTO Asian Open will include entry accommodation in the PTO’s official partner hotels, on-the-ground training access for Swim, Bike and Run as well as ‘meet and greets’ with professional triathletes and exclusive course recces.
“Tri Travel have been taking athletes and supporters to major events around the world for more than 20 years. To be part of PTO Tour series of events, including the PTO Asian Open in Singapore, and having the opportunity to enhance athletes’ overall race experience is something the team at Tri Travel are looking forward to,” said Shane Smith, director and co-founder of Tri Travel.
Course information for the 100km PTO Asian Open for professionals and experienced amateurs and details of the travel partners are available on the PTO Asian Open events page.
