What is Indoor Triathlon?
Similar to an outdoor triathlon, indoor triathlon is a multi-sport event with swim, cycling, and running components. The swim is conducted in the MUN pool, while the Field House is the location for the cycling component on spin bikes, and the run using the indoor track.
Athletes will swim for 15 minutes, cycle for 15 minutes, and run for 15 minutes. The distance covered in each component is used to derive the number of points earned in each component, based on a weighting factor for each sport. The winner is based on the most points.
There is a 10 minute transition between swim and bike, and a 5 minute transition between bike and run. The athlete’s competition is completed in 1 hour. Athletes will compete in groups of 10, called waves.
Indoor triathlon is well suited to novice athletes in triathlon as well as those getting ready for the racing season. There are minimal equipment requirements – basically swim suit and goggles, and running kit. Concerns about large groups in open water, or road cycling are completely avoided.
There will be individual champions declared for the male and female categories.
TriNL is accepting applications for event sanctioning for the 2020 season.
Event organizers are invited to download our Race Director Handbook to learn about how to hold a multi-sport event, and the requirements associated with sanctioning.
Sanctioning applications are filled out and submitted online. You will also need to submit additional documentation including an Event Emergency Plan; permit applications from applicable municipal, provincial, and federal authorities; and maps of courses and related facilities.
This process offers an excellent checklist to ensure your event is safe and secure for all participants, volunteers, and other stakeholders and that the event is conducted fairly for all competitors.
Your sanctioned event will also benefit from the knowledge and experience of TriNL board members and associates, as well as promotional opportunities through our website, news feed, and member email list. TriNL will assign a Technical Delegate (a certified triathlon official) to review the sanctioning document and work with your event team to make the event successful for everyone.
