Triathlon is a multidiscipline sport, combining swimming, cycling and running in sequence.There are five official distances: Sprint Distance (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km bike); Olympic (1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km swim); ITU Long (3km swim, 80km bike, 20km run); Half/Middle-Distance/70.3/Half-Ironman (1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run); Full/Ironman (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run). There are other unofficial distances, such as super-sprint triathlons or ultra-triathlons. Multisport events have been growing in popularity in Australia over recent years, particularly triathlons. Australia now has over 200 affiliated tri clubs, with a combined total of 22,000 members. Many triathlon events are city-based, with the swim section in pools or manmade lakes, and the cycle and run elements through city streets and past famous landmarks. Other triathlons require open-water swimming in the sea, and take the cycling and running sections off-road onto trails and difficult terrains. There are multisport variations of triathlons such as duathlon, aquathlon, and aquabike, which focus on two of the disciplines but not all three.
