How far can you go? The UW-L Indoor Tri is in its fifth year with the Rec Sports Department on campus. Its an event that provides experienced and beginner multi-sport athletes with an opportunity to put their endurance to the test. Indoor triathlons are unique events that require participants to swim, bike, and run for a predetermined amount of time instead of distance.
Each person will be assigned to a 6 person heat. Heats will be scheduled every 20 minutes throughout the event. Participants will swim for 10 minutes, bike for 20 minutes and run for 15 minutes for a total of 45 minutes of actual race time. Transition times between activities varies from 10 minutes between the swim and bike and 5 minutes between the bike and run. Scoring of the event will be based on the overall place of a racer in relation to all other racers in each individual segment. For example, racer with the furthest swim distance will receive 1 point; second will receive 2 points, and so on. The participant with the lowest points combined from all three legs of the race is the overall winner.
