Race and Distance options

The triathlon options consist of swim, cycle, and run/walk legs at the Dragon and Half Dragon distances where the Duathlon offers racers the option of replacing the swim with an additional running/walking leg. All racers will utilize a stationary bike and a treadmill for their respective cycle and run/walk legs.

Individual racers will have scheduled breaks between each leg while team competitors will compete in a relay format.
