Triathlon is a summer endurance sport involving swimming, cycling and running. In this video, Heather and Fraser talk through the key points to doing your first triathlon if you’re a complete beginner!

Once you’ve taken the plunge to enter your first event, make sure you have some time available to prepare without feeling under pressure. If you start with the super sprint distance, and assuming that you’re working from a base level of fitness, then it would be good to have at least two months to train for your specific event. This will allow you to wrap your head around the specifics of the sport, such as open water swimming, aerobars and transitions.
