About This Activity

Indoor Triathlon USA: San Francisco is the third event in a national series. Like all indoor triathlons it's controled enviroment is perfect for beginners. But unlike other indoor events it is perfect for the uber competitor.

ITUSA provides virtually identical courses in every city allowing athletes from various regions to compete against each other and vie for All American honors. What truly separates ITUSA from other indoor events is its use of Elite Fluid Trainers. Arguably, with most indoor events, the bike segment is a throw-away; in no way an accurate test of the athlete's biking power. With the Elite system it automaticly calibrates to the athlete's weight. The more an athlete weighs the more power they must exert. 

Every Indoor Triathlon USA race is an i55 distance event; 10 minute swim, 30 minute bike, 15 minute run. Please take a look at the Indoor Triathlon USA web site for detailed information on: Course Layout, Training Tips, Ranking System, World Championship and All-American Honorees.
