The intangible that this test offers, a ritual before each race
For an intangible sense of strength and passion to encourage athletes to challenge themselves through the logo have created the motto: BE EAGER. BE STRONG. BE BRAVE.
The three pillars of intangible value of the test
(1) THE NUMEROLOGY
- The concept of our logo is based on the amazing theory of Nikola Tesla of the 3, 6 and 9
- The series will be launched in 2019 = 3.
- 3 disciplines, 3 days, 3 distances.
- All distances are reduced to a single digit and end in 3, 6 and 9
- Our plan aims to reach 9 events in 9 different countries up to 2022 = (6) and 27 runs (2 + 7 = 9)
- First event in the Azores which is a group of 9 islands.
(2) THE MANDALA FINISHING MEDAL
The mandala is really a special finisher medal that It serves as a tool in our spiritual journey, since it symbolizes the cosmic and psychic order. Each test is a medal and by collecting the three medals of the three tests, you complete your mandala!
(3) THE TRITON HAKA RITUAL
Together with the tribe Maori in New Zealand which is where the Haka ritual originates, we have designed a welcome, a sign of respect and a thanks for the athletes at the same time that it serves to transmit energy for the challenge that they are going to start!
This ritual will be carried out in every TRITON World Series event, before each race, swimming, cycling or running.
Since the organization believe that finishing a career is important, but, as in life, the most important thing is to start.
The ritual has been designed to celebrate the beginning and reward all athletes with this unique and energetic experience.
