Association

What is triathlon? Triathlon is a multisport in which you consecutively swim, cycle and run. Maybe you have ever heard of the Ironman of Hawaii, the most famous long distance triathlon of the world where you swim 3.8 km, cycle 180 km and run 42.2 km. Most of the members of Aloha don’t start doing long distances like this for a long time, these members go for the shorter distances like the sprint or the olympic distance. The sprint distance is 750 m swimming, 20 km cycling and 5 km running. The olympic distance is 1500 m swimming, 40 km cycling and 10 km running.

Apart from the normal triathon, there are lots of variations like duathlon (running-cycling-running), aquathlon (swimming-running-swimming), wintertriathlon (running-cycling-iceskating), kanathlon (canoeing-running-swimming), swim run (swimming-running) and several off-road variations where a mountainbike can be used instead of a normal racebike.

Aloha is one of the few student triathlon associations from the Netherlands. The other student triathlon association are in Delft, Groningen, Maastricht en Nijmegen.

You are very welcome to come and train with us to see if triathlon is your sport.
