Triathlon is hard, grueling, physically and mentally challengeing and that’s why we love it and presumably you do as well. However, for those very reasons you should also consider getting ample insurance cover. Here at ERV we can provide Cycle and Triathlon Insurance, including upgrades to allow coverage for the likes of Ironmans (this can be a half and whole Ironman).
ERV defines Triathlon as:
“Triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines (swimming, cycling and running) limited to Sprint Distance (750 metres (0.47 miles) swim, 20 kilometres (12 miles) bike, 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) run) and Intermediate or Standard distance; commonly referred to as “Olympic” distance”: 1.5 kilometres (0.93 miles) swim, 40 kilometres (25 miles) bike, 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) run.”.
This can be extended to cover participation in triathlons involving distances up to and including: 1) Half-Ironman (1.9 km/1.2 mile swim, 90 km/56 mile bike, 21.09 km/13.1 mile run) or 2) Ironman (3.8 km/2.4 mile swim, 180 km/112 mile bike, 42.195 km / 26.2 mile run) by payment of the appropriate additional premium.
