Introducing Long Distance Triathlon

Following the triathlon format of swim-bike-run, long-distance events are usually held over double or triple the length of the standard races. Athletes must possess high levels of stamina and endurance, with races for the elites lasting up to seven hours. One major difference between standard and long-distance events is that elite athletes are not allowed to draft on the bike, and as such many of the athletes come from a strong cycling background.

The 2018 ITU Long Distance World Championships took place in Fyn, Denmark, as part of the ITU Multisport World Championship Festival. You can find the full results here.
