Race Format

Triple Mix Find out more

Master of Versatility

Throwing the traditional swim-bike-run sequence out the window, the Triple Mix shuffles the disciplines over 3 stages. It tests the versatility of the athletes and whether they can keep track of what comes next in the heat of battle.

Mistakes in this format are costly as every second counts on Stage 1 and 2 as they define Stage 3’s pursuit start. At the end of each stage, athletes have a few minutes to reset themselves and their equipment.

There are two Short Chutes up for grabs – the first for the fastest athlete over the opening swim and transition and the second for the first athlete to complete the opening bike stage and transition (all taken across the mount lines). Short Chutes are to be taken on the third and final run. Tactics for survival are fierce and athletes are eliminated from the race if they fall more than 90 seconds behind.

Stage 1 Athletes have a mass start and race a swim-bike-run.

swim 300m
bike 4km
run 1.6km

Stage 2 Athletes have a mass start and race a run-bike-swim.

run 1.6km
bike 4km
swim 300m

Stage 3 Based on their times over those races, it’s a Pursuit Style Start for the final bike-swim-run. The winner is the first person across the line at the end of Stage 3.

Race Format

Enduro Find out more

Master of Endurance

The Enduro is considered the most brutal format of all. Requiring endurance and tactics, the Enduro is a non-stop burst of nine back-to-back triathlon disciplines without any breaks. The easiest way to think about it is swim-bike-run repeated continuously three times in a row.

A focus on speed is a key demand of the Enduro because any athlete who falls more than 90 seconds behind the leader will be eliminated.

There are two Short Chutes up for grabs – the first for the fastest athlete over the opening swim and transition and the second for the first athlete to complete the opening bike stage and transition (all taken across the mount lines). Short Chutes are to be taken on the third and final run.

Stage 1 Athletes have a mass start. SBRx3 without breaks. The winner is the first athlete across the finish line upon completion of the entire race sequence.
