What are the 3 types of tri?

A triathlon race is made up of three disciplines: swimming, cycling and running. It’s an endurance sport, with a wide range of distance options to choose from.

What is a normal tri?

The different triathlon distances are: Common triathlon: A swim of 0.93 miles (1.5 kilometers), a bicycle route of 24.8 miles (40 kilometers) and a run of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers). An Ironman Triathlon: A 2.4 mile (3.9 kilometer) swim, a 112 mile (180 kilometer) bike ride and a 26.2 mile (42.2 kilometer) marathon.

What is the order of a tri?

All triathlons follow the same three-component sequence: an open-water swim, followed by a cycling leg (a term commonly used among triathletes to describe each stage of the competition), and ending in a run.

What is a super Sprint triathlon?

Perfectly suited for beginners looking to complete their first triathlon, the super sprint distance is the shortest triathlon at most venues. It usually consists of a 500-meter (0.3-mile) swim, a 10K (6.2-mile) bike and a 2.5K (1.6-mile) run.

What event comes last in a triathlon?

Triathlon events occur in that order – a swim, followed by a cycle ride, followed by a run. Between swim and cycle event, and between cycle event and run, you have the “transition”, triathlon’s “fourth discipline”.

Is a triathlon the same as an Ironman?

All Ironman races are triathlons, but not all triathlons are Ironman races. A Triathlon refers to a race that consists of three disciplines completed back to back; swimming, cycling and running. There are other triathlons that cover the same distances, but these are simply called ‘Iron-distance races’.

What is the third event in a triathlon race?

The format of a triathlon is three multisport events held back-to-back-to-back. These events are a swim, a bike ride, and a run. They are held one after the other. Swim first, followed by the bike ride, and lastly the run.

Is a sprint triathlon hard?

The Run. Running may be what comes most naturally, but as the last leg in a triathlon, it often feels like the hardest part. Your body is already tired at this point, but if you trained correctly you’ll be able to cross the finish line successfully.

What is almost always the first event in a triathlon?

For a traditional race, such as standard USA Triathlon events, the order of events in a triathlon will always be swim, bike, and run. For safety reasons, the swim is always the first leg of the event, as athletes progressively fatigue throughout the race.
