The Triathlon

Typically consisting of swimming, biking, and running, the triathlon can be one of the most challenging athletic events. Since the first Ironman in 1978, the popularity of the triathlon has increased with various events being held around the world. Similar types of multi-sport endurance races have also appeared, such as the duathlon and the aquabike. Athletes, both professional and amateur, have pushed themselves to limit through intense train schedules and hard work to take on the challenge.

Out Tri, currently available for the iPhone on the App Store, was designed for anyone interested in triathlons, duathlons, marathons, and more. It features an event list, training log, checklist, calculator, GPS tracker, and timer. Keep track of your upcoming events while checking off items that you need for race day. Use the timer or GPS tracker while exercising and save your workout information in the training log. Calculate an estimated time for a triathlon or other event based on times and distances you have completed in the past. Out Tri has the features triathletes should expect in an app.
