Triathlete is the term given to an athlete that does THREE sports as one event. TRI (three) ATHLETE. Most often the sports are SWIM, BIKE and RUN – in that order.
There are many different types of triathlon as well as many different distance events. What does triathlete mean to you? Is it a goal you have? Something your spouse, friend or coworker is doing?
We always suggest spectating and volunteering at a triathlon before trying one for yourself. This gives you a great preview of the setup, race day layout and to watch the overall flow of a race without all the anxiety to start.
