ABOUT RACING TRITON 1 TRIATHLON
At TRITON 1, like at TRITON, you can always choose to race the full, the half or the short distance race, individually by gender, as a team or by mixing & matching the distances.
All TRITON races distances are based on the scientist Nikola Tesla theory of the 3, 6 and 9. Tesla’s 3 6 9 theory suggests that three, six, and nine could hold the key to the universe.
Within the TRITON events, and as long as it follows the numerology rule, the distances may vary from event to event, depending on the location and conditions. It may be a more urban race with road bikes or a more off-road event with mountain bikes. The TRITON 1 Lisboa is a no drafting race, so time trial bikes are allowed.
THE LISBOA TRITON 1 RACING OPTIONS
TRITON 1 Lisboa will offer 3 distances: a full, a half and a short distance.
Within these distances you have a lot of options to accommodate what suits best your racing style and particular objectives. You can choose to do one of the 3 distances individually by age group and gender, or as a team, and you can also choose to do the “mix & match”, deciding witch of the 3 available distances you prefer to do for each sport.
ONLY when you choose either the FULL, the HALF or the SHORT, however, you will take part in the overall and by division results for either competition. If you choose to do the mix & match, then you will only get the splits results and will be racing each discipline individually. You will rank individually for each segment and distance, the swim the bike and the run.
The mix & match option is with the experience in mind or to accommodate a specific racing or training objective you might have on that particular day. Are you a more advanced swimmer, cyclist or runner, or are you preparing a special race and just want to go longer or shorter on one specific sport? No worries, now you can.
TRITON is the only race that opens the opportunity to be part of an amazing event without having to do the whole event on a set distance, it allows you to choose the distances.
