This year our event series continues as part of USATri60! Enjoy a bigger race series with events for all ability levels, and the 60-minute USATri60 race format – click here learn more.
An Indoor Triathlon consists of the three disciplines: swim, bike, run – in that order. The only difference from a standard outdoor event is that you are timed in each activity. Your recorded distances during the swim, bike, and run portions are calculated and combined to give you a final, total distance. Your race day will follow the new 60-minute USATri60 event format:
- Swim: 10 minutes (in pool)
- Transition 1: 10 minutes
- Bike: 30 minutes (on Keiser M3 Indoor Cycles)
- Transition 2: 5 minutes
- Run: 20 minutes (on treadmill)
New to Triathlon?
An Indoor Triathlon is a great way to experience a triathlon – without the intimidation. Registrants with no triathlon experience race alongside other first time participants and those intimidated by swimming can even race in a separate duathlon event.
