This means that instead of doing the swim, bike and run all in one day, as is usual in conventional triathlons, at TRITON you have the opportunity to focus on one discipline per day.

The first day is dedicated to swimming, which takes place on Friday afternoon. The second day, Saturday morning, is the turn of cycling. And finally, on the third day, on Sunday morning, the foot race takes place.

This format not only allows athletes to give their best in each discipline, but also Facilitates travel logistics.

Point classification system.

Your final time will be the sum of the three tests, but also you will receive points according to your position in each one of them.

The triathlete with the lowest score will be the winner, which means that all modalities have an equal weight in the final classification.

Thus, it is not enough to be a great cyclist, it is necessary to have a good performance in all the tests. Only then will we know who really is the best triathlete, something that only TRITON can determine.

Flexibility in choosing competitions
