Triathlon is one of the types of complex races, a triathlon that starts with swimming and cycling, and ends with running, and the player must balance his energy between the three sports as they perform without success. Triathlon competitions also depend on the speed of switching between clothes and shoes for each stage of the game. The final time of the competition is calculated including the transition times between swimming, cycling and running, and in each race there is a transition place where athletes change their tools for different stages of the race
