Triathlon is one of the optional Commonwealth Games sports. There are men's and women's triathlon races, which comprise a 1.5 km swim followed by 40 km cycling and a 10 km run (Olympic distance).

After being a demonstration event in 1990, triathlon has been on the program in 2002 and 2006 and will again be in 2014 and 2018. In 2014, a Triathlon Mixed Relay event has been added to the program (it will also be in 2018). The Mixed Relay consists of teams of four, compromised of two men and two women. Each athlete completes a mini triathlon of swimming, cycling and running (250m swim, 5km bike and 1.2km), before tagging their team mate.
