An aquathlon is a multisport race combining swimming and running - it's essentially a triathlon without the cycling. The event is over either two stages, one swim and one run, or three - a run, swim, then another run. Most aquathlon events are the two stage swim-run format, using triathlon standard distances.
The simple format makes aquathlons ideal for both beginners and for seasoned amateurs to train and mix up their events as it doesn't require any expensive kit or months of preparation. You can choose pool or open water, your favourite running surface, and your ideal distances.
