Triathlon Fundamentals

Triathlon is a multi-sport endurance event, it includes swimming, cycling, and running in that order, over a variety of distances and terrains. Each triathlete competes for the fastest overall time, which includes the two “transition” zones between each of the three sports components.

The “transition” areas are between the swimming-cycling and cycling-running segments.  The time spent in “transition” is calculated into the overall race time.  Time is spent teaching the tricks to a speedy, efficient transition.

Triathlon is a rigorous sport, to excel in the sport, an athlete has to be dedicated to training in each of the disciplines, as well as working on strength conditioning and speedy transitions.

The Training Approach

Chikopi instructors employ a variety of techniques and practices in the training program, including biathlons (two-stage swimming/running races) and duathlons (running/cycling/running).

Triathlon Race Strategy

In addition to learning the technical aspects of swimming, cycling, and running, Triathlon training
is also about understanding the tactics of the race:  set-up; starting; efficient transitions; physical hydration; and overall management of the race.

Mastering Three Sports

Each specific component of a Triathlon requires a particular skill. In many cases, triathletes are masters in one of the sports - but at Camp Chikopi we spend time on mastering all three: swimming, cycling, and running. The result: a camper who is accomplished in all three sports.

Working Hard, Playing Hard.

The Triathlon Program at Camp Chikopi is open to everyone, we support campers in their efforts to improve their skills, endurance, and physicality. And like all programs at Camp Chikopi, instruction and coaching is superior, and the environment is safe, enjoyable, and fun.
