Twenty weeks to success in five hours a week.

Triathlon is one of the fastest growing participation sports in Australia, attracting sportspeople from a wide range of backgrounds. Triathlon begins with an overview of how to start out and what to expect, with clear and concise introductory sections of the three disciplines - swimming, cycling and running - including equipment, techniques, training and preparation. From this point, Mark Barfield's unique, easy-to-use and highly effective programme is designed to take even the beginner to triathlon success in just 20 weeks. Packed with stunning colour images from an expert event photographer, with fascinating personal accounts of triathletes to spur you on and lots of other useful information on taking part in an event and the journey beyond, Triathlon is an invaluable resource for competitors everywhere.
