TRIATHLON >> Duathlon

Training for the duathlon event


While this sport is administered by the International Triathlon Union or ITU through its various National Federations duathlon can be considered a sport in its own right.


Benson's EPS has produced a number of outstanding duathletes, many of whom then turned to success in triathlon. For more on duathlon check the Honour Roll.


In its simplest form coaching a duathlete basically means substituting additional running in the place of swimming. However it is also EPS's philosophy to introduce or retain some swimming as a hedge to entering triathlon as well as to aid recovery and introduce some upper body strength training that would have to be done in a gym anyway.
