Triathlon Events

Triathlon races combine swimming, cycling and running into one discipline which requires skills, physical endurance and mental resilience. Ever since its inclusion on the Olympic programme of Sydney Games in 2000, triathlon rapidly grows in popularity.

Varying triathlon distances make this sport suitable to almost all fitness levels. Beginners and enthusiasts of high intensity efforts can enjoy super sprint (400 m swim,10 km bike ride and 2.5K run) or sprint distance (750 m, 20 km, 5K). Those often have the swimming portion in the pool for smaller events and in open water for larger events.

The Olympic triathlon, also called standard or classic distance, consists of a 1.5 km swim, 40 km bicycle ride and a 10K run. Those tend to be the most popular triathlons.

The Ironman triathlon, also known as full distance, has been gaining in popularity since the early 1980s. It consists of a 3.8K open water swim, 180 km bike ride and a marathon run. For those not ready to spend the whole day competing, there are also Half Ironman events, often called middle distance, which require athletes to cover half of the full distance.

Cross triathlons take the fun off-road. The swim is in open waters, the ride will require a mountain bike and a trail run terminates the event. Distances differ, and the most popular include a 1000m swim, 20-30 MTB ride and a 5-10K trail run.

For open water swims you may have to use a neoprene wetsuit, though there are many triathlons where wetsuits are not even allowed because of the warm water temperature.

The shorter triathlon races can be done on a road bike, a mountain bike or even a city bike. Nothing stops you from doing a long distance triathlon on a mountain bike, but to save your legs for the run and to aid the aerodynamics, it is worth investing in a triathlon bike.

Our triathlon calendar contains events from around the world, from super sprint and even shorter to crazy ultra triathlons that take days to complete. There is something for everyone.
