Welcome to St. Lucia Triathlon Association
Triathlon is an exciting multi-discipline sport involving a continuous race over various distances in the three disciplines of swimming, cycling, and running. A standard triathlon is made up of a swim, followed by a cycle ride, followed by a run.
Competitors race against the clock, which starts as they enter the swim and stops as they cross the finish line after the run. For this reason, triathlon is often reported as having a ‘fourth discipline’ known as the transition. The transition is the point in the race when competitors change from swimming to cycling, and from cycling to running.
The St Lucia Triathlon Association governs the “newest sport” in St Lucia and is recognised by the Ministry of Sport as the sole body responsible for the sport in St Lucia.
We intend to introduce this sport at school level and facilitate the formation of clubs through training programmes that will be open to all St Lucians.
Being an Olympic sport, one of our aims is to have St Lucia represented at an Olympic Games in the future, once our athletes have achieved the required standards
