What is Indoor Triathlon?
Similar to an outdoor triathlon, indoor triathlon is a multi-sport event with swim, cycling, and running components. The swim is conducted in the MUN pool, while the Field House is the location for the cycling component on spin bikes, and the run using the indoor track.
There is a 12 minute transition between swim and bike, and a 3 minute transition between bike and run.
The athlete’s competition is completed in 1 hour. Athletes will compete in groups of 10, called waves.
Indoor triathlon is well suited to novice athletes in triathlon. There are minimal equipment requirements
– basically swim suit and goggles, and running kit. Concerns about large groups in open water, or road
cycling are completely avoided. This event is well suited to athletes with good endurance.
This event will be limited to 100 participants. The registration fee is $10.00, plus associated fees.
