Who can do a Triathlon?
Anyone can do a triathlon. If you’re in search of fitness and looking for a rewarding challenge, Triathlon is for you.

What is a Triathlon?
Triathlon is a modern, exciting and endurance sport – for all abilities and ages. Individual athletes complete a swimming segment, followed by a cycling and a running segment, with the clock running from the beginning of the swim through each transition to the end of the run. The two transitions are the points in the race when competitors change from swimming to cycling, and from cycling to running. The event can also be completed by a relay team (a great way to get started!)
