>Triathlon enthusiasts had the opportunity last weekend to participate in a social triathlon hosted by a group of volunteers at the Walvis Bay Waterfront.
The social triathlon was established to give triathlon athletes a practice event, or to someone who has never done a triathlon but would like to give it a try.
There were three events, which included a triathlon sprint, duathlon and duathlon under 16.
The triathlon sprint consisted of a 400 metre swim, 20 km cycle and a 4 km run. The duathlon consisted of a 5 km run, 20 km cycle and a 2.5 km run. Children under 16 participated in a 2 km run, 10 km cycle and a 1 km run.
The little ones also had an opportunity to participate in a mini triathlon, which consisted of a 150 m swim, 7 km cycle and a 2 km run. The next competitive triathlon at the coast is the FNB Sandman Triathlon, today (Sunday) at the Mole in Swakopmund.
