A triathlon race is a series of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines organised across the globe. Triathlons are of many types: Sprint, Olympic, half and full (Ironman). A full triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, an 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run, raced in that order and without a break. It is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world.
World Triathlon Corporation sanctions and organises Ironman and Ironman 70.3 races every year. Since its inception, Ironman has been represented by ambitious and courageous people who aren’t afraid to push their limits. The title of Ironman does not come easily and once you become an Ironman, you are an Ironman for life.

What it takes to finish full triathlon?
We often hear this question – Can I also become an Ironman?
The answer is sure shot YES.
You can finish triathlon if you are ready to put your heart and soul in the training and determined. Key is to do right training with the right attitude.
As the Ironman tagline says “Anything is possible” and we believe the same.
You can train for the Ironman or 70.3 continuing with your day-to-day life managing your Job, family and training together if you train consistently and in a structured way under the proper guidance.
Why Coaching is important for a full triathlon?
Often people neglect the importance of professional coaching for such gruelling events and races and thus results in burnout or they give up their dream or end up with injuries or suffer to reach the finish line.
A coach is your guide, your friend, your mentor and Guru who has been through this journey and knows the know-how of the sport and shall help you prepare mentally and physically to take up such a huge challenge breaking it into multiple smaller milestones to be achieved during your training period.
Having a Coach helps an athlete to become more confident, improve faster and race better in an injury-free manner. Training for triathlon brings a lot of highs and lows in the life of trainee and to cope up with that in a better way one needs a Coach.
Even though the sport is gaining popularity widely but still there are only handful of people who have completed Ironman in India and professional training are not available for online and offline modules. In India, you can participate in major triathlons i.e. Hyderabad Triathlon or New Delhi Triathlon Championship.
