Sprint Triathlon
Why we like it Shorter than a regular triathlon, these races are newbie-friendly. You can tackle a 500- to 750-meter swim, a 12- to 16-mile bike ride, and a 5K run/walk and still have time to hit brunch after. Love swimming but hate running or cycling? Pair up with a buddy or two and participate as a relay team.
