Introducting Triathlon Mixed Relay

ITU’s Triathlon Mixed Relay format is racing at its most thrilling. It’s energetic, exciting, uncompromising and action-packed. This innovative format also known as 4XMixed Relay, comprises of two men and two women. Each athlete completes a ‘super-sprint’ triathlon of swimming, biking and running, before tagging off to their next team mate. It’s non-stop action from the very beginning, and the pace is relentless. It is survival of the fastest.

The format has been quickly adopted globally, and was placed on the programme of the 2010 Singapore Youth Olympic Games, with great success. The International Triathlon Union is passionate about having Triathlon Mixed Relay added to the Olympic programme, as the format appeals tremendously to youth.  With numerous lead changes, lots of unpredictable drama and the display of team pride, the discipline develops the sport among new generations and new audiences. Additionally, the mixed relay format represents ITU’s commitment to promoting gender equality in sport, showcasing that men and women can practice the sport together on the same field of play.

The 2016 ITU Triathlon Mixed Relay World Championships took place in Hamburg on Sunday July 17.
