    Sleepathlon? Lurkathlon? There's several others but I'll see what the level settles at before I add more.
  • A Kylie-athlon of course !

  • A pizzathlon, with three meaty toppings.
  • Just watched the TRIs I taped last nite ....

    One of them was Run/MTB/Ski
  • like that one will - but I guess it's MTB up and ski down?? although you could always run up, bike down and ski up. there's a rowathon as well - row on conceptt II, bike, run.
  • a knobathon (male only) - try to sh*g 3 women on the trot!! and finish each time.
  • sigh.

    [in resignation, NOT desire]

  • shagging three women with the trots could get messy
  • well, you knew it had to happen jj!!
  • but I'm sure there are some who would be into that scene caspar
  • the mind boggles
  • CASPAR!!! I'm shocked that you should sink to his level. I thought you were such a nice, if slightly sandy, boy.
  • sorry i had one too many guinesses last night

    i do apologise and do not condone that sort of activity in any way

    this is what happens when you get injured- you go off the rails
  • I'm giving that sort of comment the contempt it deserves!

    Will - routinely here winter tri consists of swim (indoor pool), MTB, X-country ski if snow on the ground, X-country run if not. The Gundarsen chasing start is used on the MTB because of having to swim indoors - there's a pause until everyone has swum, then it's a start in reverse order of finish times in the swim, i.e. if you were 1m 40 secs down in the swim, that's how long you start behind on the MTB section. T2 is a normal one, out of the bike shoes and into your run or ski boots.
  • Pubathon: Game of darts; game of pool; game of dominos

    Old-manathon: Round of golf; dig the garden; wash cardigan

    On a more serious note - any triathlon variable that has something other than swimming. I'm carp at swimming :o(

    did you mistype that on purpose to feed a witty response.....very clever

  • I didn't spot the witticism - carp is a forum clean up of a sweary word.

    Er, why am I admitting to that......

    Yes, of course it was a deliberate misspelling for effect, Daz, well spotted.

  • When I was on climbing in Fontainebleu (hmm, spelling. Anyway, it's in France) I saw a poster for a triathlon - climb/bike/run.

    Would have been far more entertaining the other way round - have you ever seen anyone try and climb after they've b*lloxed themselves on a run - very funny! (not for the climber, mind)

    try this

    Swimming: 3.1 km

    Road Bike: Distance 88 km, climb 2145 m.

    Mountain Bike:Distance 30 km, climb 1180 m.

    Mountain Run:Distance 25 km, climb 2175 m.

  • There's one in southern Germany which includes a long inline skate course as well as swim, road bike and MTB, and another one that has a canoing stretch.
  • I was chatting to a guy at Derby who was on his first triathlon, his strongest discipline happened to be golf, so maybe swim/crazy golf/run
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭
    Thats a good one! Does it matter about number of shots per hole. Maybe just get it in as quickly as poss.

    a tri involving pogo-sticks and space-hoppers might be quite good. 80s-tastic!
