What is a Reverse Triathlon?
Triathlon is a great way to challenge yourself and compete with your friends.. Traditionally triathlons are in a swim/bike run format. But in select areas (such as a pool swim), it makes more sense to do it reverse (imagine 500 people in a pool at once). So a Reverse Triathlon is when you run first, then bike, then swim.
The Pasadena Triathlon has been designated by the USA Triathlon Paratriathlon Committee as ‘Paratriathlon Friendly.
