Triathlon is a multisport endurance event consisting of swimming, cycling and running in immediate succession over various distances.

The Senior Olympics event is "Sprint Triathlon" which is usually a 1/4 to 1/3 mile swim, 16 mile bike ride, and 3.2 mile run.

Time for the event includes the transitions from swim to bike and bike to run. Although most people new to triathlons are familiar with each leg of the event, it is the proficiency in the transitions that is also an important factor in the competition and requires practice and attention to detail.
