Triathlon, an endurance-based sport, consists of a three-sport athletic competition involving swimming, cycling, and running. Athletes will train in all three disciplines developing increased physical fitness and cardiovascular benefits.
Triathlon is a fall sport where athletes train and compete from March through September.
Article 1 provides general principles established by the Special Olympics Official General Rules that are not found in sport-specific rules. When there is conflict between a sport’s official rules and the general rules, the general rules in Article 1 will be followed.
