Fast Triathlon Launches Inaugural Race In The U.S.
Orlando, FL - (Friday, February 12, 2021) Fast Triathlon has announced they will be launching its Inaugural race in the U.S. on July 11, 2021 in Atlantic City. “We are excited to introduce athletes in the U.S. to this new racing concept,” said Eduardo Affonso, CEO and Founder.
The Fast Triathlon format is a bit different than the Sprint Triathlon – its shorter and faster. To be the “Fastest Triathlete,” you must be resilient, resistant and have a strategy when competing in 3-rounds of:
Swim - 218 yards or 200 meters
Bike - 2.5 miles or 4 kilometers
Run - 0.6 mile or 1 kilometer
"Period of Rest" in between rounds depending on the number of athletes competing
Our main objectives are:
-Introduce new athletes to the sport
-Create entertainment through participation and media exposure due to its unique format
-Athletes can perform in a Fast Triathlon event with less time spent training
-Create a reduced-price option for participating in a triathlon race (Fast Triathlon Experience)
-Develop a unique ‘fast triathlon’ brand throughout the world
-Our #1 objective is maintaining good HEALTH!
