SPRINT (15th August 2015)
The sprint race will run over the official distances: 750 metre swim, 20 km bike ride and 5 km run. The shorter distances like the sprint are the best way to get involved with the sport as they require only a basic swimming level and general fitness. However, although the sprint distances are the shortest they might not be the easiest. On the other hand, sprints provide beginners with the chance to race, enjoy and experience the event.
HALF DISTANCE (16th August 2015)
The half-distance triathlon (or ‘long-course’) includes a 1.9 km swim, a 90 km bike ride and 21.1 km run. This distance requires competitors to undergo a strict training programme and build better stamina than for the shorter races, but the distance is still open to all styles and abilities. Wh ere some might compete more seriously, others may seek to challenge themselves over half the distance or just take part in a ”once in a lifetime” experience. TTW Half Distance is also an international top-level sporting event.
