9 In triathlon

infographic // world triathlon london

One of my life to-dos is to bike or run in all 50 states, but I may have to add one more to the list: Run or bike internationally every couple years (and then vacation after!). The World Triathlon in London seems like a good place to start, right?! (To clarify, no, I’m not racing!)

Check out the below infographic for some pretty neat facts about the race, which is this weekend, Saturday, May 31! I’m particularly fascinated by a few of the data points:

  • Let’s get more women in the sport. Because it’s a really fun, lifelong sport! 
  • Average value of each bike at the race = about $2,600. 
  • Total value of all the bikes at the race = $22 million(!).

That’s a LOT of money! And, if you’re anything like me, your bike is your most prized possession, so make sure you insure it, just in case :)

    Runcations have become one of my favorite things, and I imagine an international trication would be amazing!

    Such a great infographic! Love the info about how many times around the earth people race that weekend!
    I’m itching for a bikecation, something new for me since i usually only want to run in new places!
    We’re hosting the ITU grand final this year- you should put this place on your list :)

    whoa, very cool! I always find the average age so interesting! I would love to do an international race some time (well, one that’s out of North America, since I am doing IM Cozumel this year!)

    London would be a fantastic triathlon to do. I watched the elites last year and also the open events and it was a fantastic atmosphere. My husband won tickets this year, so we’re going to be in the grandstands again.

    If you’re looking for really amazing race, I can strongly recommend Paris marathon. It’s a beautiful city to stay in and the marathon route is really interesting.

    Looks like a an awesome race!! I really wanted to do an internationally Ironman. I just don’t know though. Seems like the logistics are way too much. We didn’t even think we could get our bikes to Lake Placid and that is why we settled on Whistler!!
    How many states have you biked/run in already?!!

    We watched the men’s elite race on TV last year, it was pretty cool. London is an hour’s plan ride from Scotland. Just saying. There’s a major triathlon here called the Celtman. It’s an extreme triathlon where you do an open water swim in a freezing loch, cycle 202 km, then run a marathon where part of it is over a mountain. Interested?

    I really like that infographic! I agree with you.. let’s get more women involved in the sport! I like to think I will be racing for many years to come (if my body allows of course). I am excited to do my first ever international race this year, in Canada at IMMT! Although it’s funny for me to think of Canada as International, since it’s only 6 hours from where I live, it still counts:) I would love to travel all of the world and do tris (if only!)
