Can a triathlon be for you?
This Olympic sport consists of performing 3 sports disciplines, (swimming, cycling and running) that are carried out in order and without any interruption between one test and the next. The time the triathlete takes to switch from one discipline to another is called transition. The first is T1 and the second T2.
The triathlon races are classified in several modalities according to:
- Your distance, having short and long distance.
- If the cycling circuit is on the road or cross (by roads and mountain).
- If drafting is allowed (go to another runner in the cycling segment).
