The home of triathlon

Triathlon is a sport for the adventurous and dedicated athletes looking to achieve more than just a single discipline race. All three disciplines - swimming, cycling and running - must be completed right after the other which demands a very high fitness level and tactical awareness from every athlete. One advantage is that all three disciplines are very common and easily trainable individual sports. However, the combination within triathlon makes the sport interesting and above all challenging - ideal for athletes who like to push their limits.
