Chennai Triathlon, March 23-24


This weekend 32 Enticer, 31 Sprint, 24 Olympic and 13 Half Iron distance Triathletes successively crossed the finish line of our 2-day multi-discipline sports event. We saw many new faces participating in the entry level distances as well as our regular Triathletes competing on the higher levels. It was a pleasure to see many girls and women participants joining and completing the Enticer, Sprint and Olympic levels. Our Triathlon knew no age limits with the youngest participant of 6 years and eldest at 54 years young! Time for YOU to join and start practicing for our next Triathlon.

First of all I want to thank our many self-less volunteers who patiently supported the entire event over 2 days, always ready to help with a smile and without whom this Triathlon would not have been possible

Both days our triathletes assembled at the Aquatic Complex near Velachery around 5:30am for registrations & warm up session by our very own Vallaban physio & sports trainer to prepare for the long endurance:


Around 6:15am the troops gathered inside the swimming pool and different levels were assigned to different swimming lanes: Enticer 300m, Sprint 750m, Olympic 1.5km and Half Iron distance 1.9km respectively:

After successfully completing the required number of swimming lapses for the respective levels our Triathletes immediately changed and proceeded with the cycle section along the OMR/ECR: Enticer/Sprint 30km U-turn at Sholliganallur, Olympic 45km U-turn at Kellambakkam and Half Iron 90km U-turn at Mahabs.








For all 4 levels the cycle section ended near the common running track along ECR near Neelankarai where the Triathletes had to run a different number of loops: Enticer 3km, Sprint 5km, Olympic 10km and Half Iron distance 21km (half Marathon)
