GHAC Presents Hyderabad Triathlon: Olympic Format Triathlon - Sun 14 Oct 2012
A triathlon is a multi-sport event involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance events. While many variations of the sport exist, triathlon, in its most popular form, involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances. Triathletes compete for fastest overall course completion time, including timed "transitions" between the individual swim, bike, and run components. (Courtesy - Wikipedia)
Event Location is Gachibowli Stadium.
Not many days left, so start training if not started already.
Welcome to the Hyderabad Trialthlon Olympic version. This triathlon will be conducted on the International format.
