What is a virtual triathlon?
Athletes have the convenience of swimming, biking and running the distance of a sprint triathlon on their own schedule anywhere in the world — indoors or outside. Do the distance all at once like a traditional triathlon or break it into one leg per day. The beauty of a virtual triathlon is the flexibility.
Who is virtual triathlon for?
Anyone! Whether you’re looking to do your first triathlon or have done hundreds, anyone can participate. To be considered a finisher, you simply need to complete the required distance for swimming, cycling and running before the end of the event.
Where should I participate?
Wherever you can safely swim, bike and run! Swim in a pool or open water. Ride on the trainer (strictly indoor only for safety). Run on a treadmill, track or trail. As long as you can measure your time and distance via a smartwatch, GPS-enabled device or phone, you can enter your time and distance on the Virtual Sports Racing platform.
What equipment do I need?
A GPS-enabled device, phone or smartwatch to record your workout is encouraged, but you do not have to have a tracking device. Basic swim, bike and run gear or access to a stationary bike, pool or treadmill is all you really need to participate.
