ABOUT RACING TRITON

TRITON World Series is a worldwide circuit of multi-sport races, each one spanning 3 days, where each day the athletes compete in a single sport. The 3 sports are swim, bike and run, the 3 segments of a triathlon. The swim takes place Friday, the bike Saturday, and the run Sunday. In the end, the 3 times are added together for the general classification.

TRITON distances are based on the scientist Nikola Tesla theory of the 3, 6 and 9. Tesla’s 3 6 9 theory suggests that three, six, and nine could hold the key to the universe.

However, within the numbers rule, the distances may vary from event to event, depending on the location and conditions, and maybe also be a more urban race with road bikes or a more off-road event with mountain bikes. The bike segment is a draft legal race, so no time trial bikes are allowed.

THE RACING OPTIONS

TRITON races always offer three distances that we call SHORT, MIDDLE and LONG.

You have the options to race one of the distances the “mix & match” the distances, or for just one or two of the sports, swim, bike or run.

Only when you chose one of the full races, SHORT, MIDDLE or LONG, you will be part of the series and eventually qualify for a finals event when it happens.

The mix & match is with the experience in mind. Are you a more advanced swimmer, cyclist or runner and want to try the other disciplines but on a different distance? No worries, you can, all you must do is register one by one, meaning, do 3 registrations, and this way you will be registered as the individual race for every race, but not in the series.

The one sports competition opens the opportunity to be part of an amazing event without having to do the whole event.

These are the distances to choose from for the Algarve race:
• FULL – 4.5km swim, 120km bike, 36km run
• MIDDLE – 3km swim, 90km bike, 24km run
• SHORT – 1.5km swim, 60km bike, 12km run

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SERIES AND THE MIX & MATCH OR JUST RACING ONE OR TWO OF THE SPORTS?

If you register for one of the series distances, SHORT, MIDDLE or LONG you will get:

• Racing kit
• Finisher medal
• Finisher t-shirt (white for a short distance, red for middle distance and black for long-distance)

Note 1: Finisher medal and finisher t-shirts are awarded to those who finish the race only, it is part of your race kit but only if you finish your race.
Note 2: when you register in the series for any team format three t-shirts per team are included.

• Per race results and ranking and per series results and ranking
• Eventually qualify for a finals event when it happens
• You can register in the series individually in the several divisions available, as a team (in the MIDDLE DISTANCE) or as a corporate team (in the SHORT DISTANCE)

If you register for the mix & match you will get:
