A sprint triathlon is just a certain distance of triathlon. It is made up of a 750m swim, 20k bike, and 5k run.
ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships was created in 1938.
Depends on laps of what. Triathlons are catagorized by distance. Sprint distance is 750 meter swim, 20km bike, 5km run.
It depends on the type of triathlon you are doing. The sprint distance is 20k(12mi) the Olympic distance is 40k(25mi) the Half Ironman is 90k(56mi) and the Ironman is 180k(112mi)
A sprint triathlon is 800 meter swim, 12.4 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run...an olympic distance is double that.
It depends on what the Triathlon is...Sprint Distance is usually a swim of about a half mile (0.47). Olympic or International Distance is a swim of about one mile (0.93). Then there is the half-Ironman (70.3) or Long Distance Triathlon as they are sometimes referred to which has a swim of 1.2 miles. Then the ultimate Triathlon that many work toward which is the full Ironman distance and that has a swim of 2.4 miles.
that depends on your distance and your fitness level. 12 weeks can be enough for a sprint. Or nothing at all.
There are several standardized distances: Sprint (750 meters), Olympic (1.5 kilometers swim), the Long Course (1.9km swim), and Ultra Distance (3.9 km swim).

Yes, if you would like to prepare for a triathlon you should look into a couple of different workouts. You will want to try Sprint Triathlon Swim workouts if the swimming is what you need the most help in.
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"
A Triathlon includes swimming, cycling and running, with a timed transition in between each. There are multiple distances for triathlon. Sprint distance being the shortest is probably the most popular. This is a 750m swim, followed by a 20k cycle and finishing with a 5k run. The longest is the IronMan triathlon. this is a 3.8k swim, 180k bike ride and finishing with a marathon. Check this link for more details on the set distances for each race type.
There are many different Triathlon distances, there biking distances are as follows: Sprint Distance - Usually 10 miles (Can be as high as 20) Olympic Distance - Usually 24 miles Half Ironman - 56 miles Ironman - 112 miles The distance of each leg of the race varies on a race by race basis. Usually the distance for each leg of an event are clearly advertised anytime the name of the race is advertised.

I'd recommend you start with 2 swims, 2 bikes and 2 runs per week, and add 10% distance on weekly basis. Hope that helps!Ben Greenfield
An Olympic triathlon is (obviously) the size they do in the Olympics and is the second-shortest official-sized triathlon (it goes Sprint>Olympic>Half-Ironman>Full Ironman) They are typically a 1.5km swim followed by a 40km bike leg, and finishing off with a 10 km run.
