Swim : 400 m ( indoors) 24k cycle (open roads) Run 4.72k
Requires some prior training or generally good level of fitness for best results. Very inclusive and friendly.
Three disciplines mainly cardio based, although strength training will be of benefit as well.
The Sprint distances offer more of a challenge and absolute beginners may be better off starting with the Try a Tri unless you have a good level of fitness already
