COME ONE, COME ALL!

All the multi-sports athletes are invited to plod in the International swimming pool of Talkatora stadium. This opportunity is brought to you by Core Athletics, the brand that is hosting Delhi International Triathlon and Duathlon!

The event has three categories, i.e. the Triathlon, the Duathlon and a creative initiative called the Ulta Phulta. All the registrations have to be made in advance. All participants are required to collect their BIBS before the event takes place from the venue assigned.

A Triathlon is a multiple-sport competition involving a sprint of three consecutive sports. While numerous varieties of the game exist, Triathlon in its most prominent structure includes swimming, cycling, and running in prompt progression over different separations. The objective is to complete the course of the three races as fast as possible. There is a common transition area assigned where the competitors change gear for distinctive fragments of the race. Switches from swimming to cycling and cycling to running happen here. These regions are utilized to store bikes, clothing and whatever other accompaniments required for the following phase of the race.

A Duathlon is very similar to a Triathlon except for the lack of one sport in the sequence. It involves cycling and running in a sequence without transition! The Core Athletics team has experimented with both the events and created one of their own.

Ulta Phulta is the reversal of a Triathlon sequence where the competing athletes would have to complete the opposite course of the race. This could be an interesting event owing to its difference from the original Triathlon!

Various aspects must be kept in mind by competitors participating in these events. Apart from collecting their BIBS on time, a participant must follow the routine of a light breakfast and warm up prior to the race. It’s also important to manage your fuel consumption before and throughout the race. Make sure to read all the guidelines and don’t forget to have fun!
