The event is a sanctioned USAT event in partnership with USA Triathlon. Different than a traditional triathlon, each participant will have a set amount of time to swim, bike, and run with allotted transitions between activities. Fun and pressure-free, this event is great for both experienced triathletes and those competing in their first race.
· 10-minute swim in a 25 yard lap pool
· 30-minute bike on an indoor cycling bike
· 20-minute run on a treadmill
HOW IT WORKS:
At your designated start time, athletes will begin with a 10-minute swim in the indoor pool. Shift gears and spend the next 30 minutes cycling in the Spin Studio. Then race toward the finish line with 20 minutes on the treadmill (2nd floor fitness center).
Athletes are allowed 7 minutes to safely change from the pool to the cycling and 3 minutes to move from cycling to the treadmill.
Race volunteers record the total distance covered during your swim, bike and run. The more distance you cover, the higher your score. The indoor triathlon is based on time rather than distance — meaning you receive points for going further in a specific period of time, not going faster over a fixed distance. The total event lasts for 70 minutes (60 minutes race time), consisting of:
Swim: 10 minutes (25 yard lap pool) Transition 1 (Swim to Bike): 7 minutes ( from the pool to spin studio) Bike: 30 minutes on an indoor bike (Spin Studio) Transition 2: 3-minutes (move from the spin studio to treadmills) Run: 20 minutes on a treadmill
