What is a good triathlon time for a beginner?
For the beginner triathlete, it will take about 1 hour 50 minutes to complete their first sprint distance triathlon. If we break down the average sprint triathlon time, this should take the novice triathlete around 2 minutes per 100 m in the swim. 1 hour for the bike leg, and up to 30 minutes to complete the run.
How many hours a week do triathletes train?
The truth is that most age group triathletes excel with around 9-14 hours per week of training. You can accomplish a lot with 10 hours a week if you stay focused, put everything into your intervals and cut out all the junk miles and wasted time like long bike stop groups and hanging out in the locker room to talk.

What triathlon should I start with?

Can I train for a triathlon in 4 weeks?
Sprint Training Plan: The Program This sprint training plan begins six weeks prior to your first sprint triathlon. Before starting, you should be generally aerobically fit and able to swim, bike and run. Weeks 4 and 5 continue to focus on race-pace fitness, and will give you practice running off the bike.
Can you walk in a triathlon?
You can walk during the running portion of a triathlon, but please don’t “crawl.” In typical legalese style, the ITU defines crawling as “the action by an athlete of bringing three or more limbs in contact with the ground, either together or in any sequence, to enable forward propulsion” [source: ITU].
How do triathletes get paid?
Top professional triathletes earn money through prize purses and sponsors. Lesser-known or less-connected athletes rely heavily on prize money, which is the same for everyone, while athletes with bigger names can make more from sponsors. Most sponsorships, however, come in the form of free product, not money.
Why is triathlon so expensive?
Most U.S. Ironmans are running $725 these days, before the despised reg fee. So far, that leaves us with this: Traveling to races in the U.S. is expensive because it takes more time and more hotel nights should you venture across the country or up a mountain.
