Indoor Triathlon

2019 Demon Dash Indoor Triathlon
Date: Late winter/early spring 2019

Curious about our indoor triathlon format?
Athletes are given a fixed amount of time to complete as much distance as possible in each leg, with a fixed time from one event to the next.
Swim: 10 minutes
Transition 1: 10 minutes
Bike: 30 minutes
Transition 2: 5 minutes
Run: 20 minutes

Volunteers and race judges are on hand to track and record distances. Points are awarded based on how much distance is covered in each event, relative to competitors. Athletes are ranked by their total points over the three legs of the event. This is a great event and format for beginners and experienced triathletes alike. Beginners see what it's like to compete as a triathlete. Experienced competitors have the chance to benchmark themselves as they train for longer races.


If I've never done a triathlon before, can I participate?

Yes, because the event is indoors, you do not need any special equipment. This is a great event for beginners!

What equipment do I need?

Appropriate athletic clothes and swimwear for the three events are the only items that athletes need to bring. Participants may want to bring a water bottle as well.

For the swim, participants may wear a swim cap and goggles. Participants may not use wetsuits, fins or flotation devices.
