A triathlon is a multi-sport endurance event that combines successive swimming, cycling and running races. Athletes must train and be in top condition to endure the grueling challenge of races such as Ironman Triathlon. The sport made its début at the Olympics in 2000 and comprised of a 1500 m swim, 40 km bike and 10 km run. Today, thousands of events are held worldwide each year and annually, at least one triathalon is held in Welland.
