Triathlon

Triathlon is one of the core 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 again from 2014 onwards. In 2014, a Triathlon Mixed Relay event was added to the program. 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.
