SMU Aquathlon


SMU Aquathlon is a multisport club that combines both swimming and running into one exciting sport. Races typically take place at beaches whereby participants will swim in the sea before moving to a transition area and finishing with a run. 

Everyone from absolute beginners to seasoned athletes are welcome to train and grow with us. Our training is progressive in nature in which beginners will feel and see improvements in both their swims and runs whilst being challenging even for the most seasoned of athletes. We leave no one behind and we are more than just a club, we are a family.

No, every SMU student is welcome to join the club!


"Partially to maintain my health and partially for the experience, I thought it will be really cool to step out of my comfort zone too and experience something new. Hopefully to accomplish my childhood dream someday; complete a full iron man."

- Jeffery Lau, School of Computing and Information Systems Year 1

"I've always admired the fitness and endurance of triathletes! I enjoy running regularly but I can't swim so it would be fun to learn a new skill as well."

- Andrew Kho Jia Hao, School of Economics Year 1



Both! If you are the competitive type, there are multiple opportunities for you to compete and represent SMU. However, if you prefer to take part recreationally, our trainings are tailored to all experience groups and will equip you with the skills to complete an open water swim as well as a 5km run. Regardless of experience, we train together and improve together!

Our coach is often present to guide us through our training. He provides us with workouts tailored to the team to allow us to grow most effectively. If he is not around, our Captain will be there to guide you! :)

Aquathlon is an individual sport done as a team. Participants complete both swim and run segments consecutively and on their own.

In races, the team aspect comes from the cumulation of individual timings or positions. The effort of each member will count towards us consistently winning the club challenges. As such, everyone strives to improve together to win together as a team. This inspires us to motivate each other, train together, and win together. 

Yes, we welcome everyone from all sorts of backgrounds! In fact, most of our members joined without any prior background in swimming. We have experienced members to guide you during training. Through our progressive training, and with like-minded teammates here to motivate and inspire one another, you will soon be seasoned enough to swim in the open waters!

Our training encompasses a mixture of intervals, conditioning, and more. Our training intensity is tailored to the club members’ abilities and the training department works closely with the coach to ensure everyone in the club can perform to the best of their abilities.

“Trust our coach, trust the training, trust your teammates and of course, trust yourself.” 

Between sets, we enjoy discussing trivial topics and cracking jokes with one another. These conversations make training fun and memorable and take our minds off the hectic school lifestyle that all students experience. Training sessions are not just about training but a time for our members to bond together and interact with one another. 

We do spend time outside of training and grab a meal after it. Food is good, the company is better!
