What’s a Quadrathlon?
Events, Distances, and Race Formats

Under-recognized as a genre-defying level-up from triathlon, quadrathlon is a unique multisport event comprised of four disciplines in the order of swimming, kayaking, cycling, and running. Quadrathlon is nothing new. In fact, it’s been around for several decades and even has a few governing bodies, mostly across Europe. But for most endurance and multisport athletes, the concept of a 4-discipline quadrathlon event is entirely novel and highly enticing. It’s becoming more and more common to see unconventional triathlon events that include alternative disciplines, like paddling, hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing. These multisport events typically take the shape of the surrounding terrain… Read More »

3 Worthwhile Practices to Become a Better Triathlete

Most triathletes view their multisport endeavors as an ongoing journey of continuous self-improvement, self-fulfillment, and satisfaction. And yet, many triathletes struggle with plateauing performance, debilitating injuries, and a general feeling of stagnation in the sport. Contrary to popular practice, training harder and more often is not always the best approach when training for a triathlon. In fact, it’s a good way to burn out or get injured. Countless endurance athletes obsess over racking up miles and earning KOMs on Strava, all the while failing to neglect the purpose, science, and biomechanics behind their training. Instead of focusing on volume and… Read More »
