3 SPORTS, 3 DISTANCES, 3 DAYS
Athletes First 0%
TRITON 1 is a triathlon under the same brand and DNA of TRITON WS, a long-distance triathlon like event of challenging and aspirational racing focusing on experiencing from start to finish on 3 different sports: swim, bike and run on 3 separate consecutive days, with the individual time of each discipline added together for a final result. TRITON 1 takes TRITON WS race format into a one day regular triathlon competition.
THE START LINE
We believe that getting to the start line is as important or more than getting to the finish line. We like to celebrate that fact with you as much as getting to the finish line.
Often, adverse conditions stop you from finishing regardless of how much you’ve train or prepare for it, from a mechanical problem to a sudden headache, stuffy or runny nose, indigestion, upset stomach, or dizziness, anything out of your control can happen on race day.
Nevertheless, if you are willing to start, over and over again, one day you will reach the finish line, and this is at our core, keep showing up at the start line, until you get to the finish line, and you will.
THE FINISHER T-SHIRT BURINING CEREMONY
At TRITON we don’t sell finisher medals or finisher t-shirts. Both are awarded to you if and only if you can finish your race on that racing day, if not, you have one more reason to stay inspired and come back the next year, to get, what you know in your heart, is yours.
The leftover finisher t-shirts, from no show athletes or athletes, that for some reason were not able to finish, will be burned at the end.
To make available a sustainable and intangible in value global multi-sport competition to all. We took the sport of triathlon and made it into three days multi-sport event. It is with this purpose we bring to you TRITON World Series.
By an intangible sense of strength and passion to encourage athletes to challenge themselves through the logo and tagline combine: BE EAGER. BE STRONG. BE BRAVE. With athletes as the center of the equation we looked to find a fit all challenging event offering the opportunity of a full 3 days experience or just one or two days.
THE THREE INTANGIBLE VALUE PILARS
We look to be aspirational and inspirational through these 3 elements:
(2) mandala finisher medal and the
(3) SISU mentality.
(1) THE NUMEROLOGY
- The hole concept was design based on the Nikola Tesla’s mind blowing theory of the 3, 6 and 9
- 3 disciplines, 3 days, 3 distances
- All distances reduced to a single digit will finish in 3, 6 and 9
(2) THE MANDALA FINISHER MEDAL
The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolizes cosmic and psychic order.
(3) THE SISU MENTALITY
We believe when mind, body and soul work in perfect synchrony we are able to achieve amazing and unexpected results.
SISU mentality is better known amongst the Finnish people but it is an ability available to all people, and it consists on one’s ability to plug in to our innerselves and find energy to go beyond what we believe to be our limits. To overcome any challenge.
SISU mentality for us at TRITON means a mind, body and soul experience to excel and exceed yourself.
At every live event we will host a welcome 5 minute meditation ceremony, in silence, as our way to welcome you to the spirit of TRITON and weekend and to help you find your SISU mentality to be ready for the event.
Disconnect from the outside world to connect to yourself. We practice disconnect to connect.
TRITON WORLD SERIES MANDALA
The meaning of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning “circle.” Even though it may be have features like squares or triangles, a mandala always has a concentric (circular) nature.
Symbolic Meaning of Mandala. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The meanings of mandala depends upon color, geometric elements and culture.
The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolizes cosmic and psychic order. The TRITON World Series mandala carries the spirit and soul of the race.
To complete the mandala, participants must finish all 3 races, individually or with a team, the swim, the bike and the run, as each medal for each race is a piece of the MANDALA medal.
Each piece of the MANDALA is a finisher medal standing alone in its own right for those choosing to do just one or two of the races.
