A triathlon is a multisport race that involves swimming, biking, and running. A triathlon race is typically one continuous event with only short breaks in between each activity to allow the athletes time to prepare for the next portion of the triathlon race. The competitors begin with an open-water swim or pool swim. The next portion of the race is a bike ride, taking place either on an off-road course or on city streets. Then the cyclists transition into running shoes to cross the finish line during the running portion of the event.
