Best Answer

A mini triathlon is shorter (in terms of overall distance) event that is designed to allow new triathletes to better their skills, or to encourage fitness enthusiasts to try the sport of triathlon (Swim + Bike + Run).

Amongst the triathlon community, there are no standard distances for a mini triathlon; however, the distances would be on the order of:

Swim (100 yds to 1/4 mile)

Bike (6 miles to 12 miles)

Run (1 mile to 3 miles)

There are some generally accepted standard triathlon distances for longer events:

Iron Distance (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run)

Half Iron Distance (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run)

Olympic Distance (1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, 10 km run)

A mini-triathlon may also be labelled, "Super-sprint", "sprint", "try-a-tri", "give it a tri"
