Tri2O Beginners Guide to Triathlon Transitions

Most people regard a Triathlon as a race of 3 disciplines; swim, bike and run. However the transition is often referred to as the ‘4th discipline' and it too requires consideration and focus as a poor transition can be costly in terms of time, energy and your positivity.

A Triathlon will have two transitions:

T1 is from Swim to Bike




T2 is from Bike to Run


Each of these is very different in their requirements but is very similar in the way that they should be approached.

Read our simple tips to help you get organised and become a master of transition!
