What is a good time for a beginner sprint triathlon?
Add in 5 minutes (generous) for each transion and the total time for a beginner or first time triathlon to complete a sprint triathlon is about 1 hour and 50 minutes. That’s probably a bit on the long side for many people, but you will have to look at your own fitness to see where you would fit in on this scale.
What is a decent triathlon time?
A very respectable time would be around six hours. If you’re getting close to five, you’re doing great, and if you’re a little over six as a female, you’re still looking at a good time. Think about it this way: you’ll have to finish the swim in 45 minutes, the bike in three hours, and the run in 2:15.

How many hours a week should I train for a triathlon?
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.
Do you wear a bra with a tri suit?
The answer is no. You should not wear underwear (except a sports bra ) under your trisuit in a race. Our female-specific triathlon chamois is made to be comfortable against your skin and to protect you from chafing and discomfort on the bike, and is thin and light enough to be comfortable on the run.
Can you walk in a triathlon?
