4.3. What are the distances for triathlons?

There are no set distances for triathlons. Many triathlons use various
distances that conform to the land/water available to them.

There are, however, a few "common" distances:

Name                        Swim  Bike  Run
Sprint                     .75km  20km   5km
Olympic or International   1.5km  40km  10km
Long Course                2.4m   112m  26.2m

The terms "short course" and "long course" generally refer to
distances less than and greater than Olympic distance respectively.
