Swimming and cycling take up the first 41.5km of a 'standard course' (or 183.6km of an 'Ironman triathlon) but the final 10km (or 42.2km for any iron men) is done on foot, so it's vital that you have some good quality, possibly even lightweight running shoes.
Here at Eureka Cycle Sports we have a range of top brands such as Scott running shoes and Asics triathlon running shoes so you can be sure that you're going to get the best quality at a great price.
When running a triathlon it's not just the actual event that you have to concentrate on, as getting the training right is half the battle. That is why you must make sure your preparation is correct and for that you'll need to make sure that your equipment, including your running shoes, is of the best quality.
Part of your training schedule should be to take part in some running races, such as half marathons, to get used to the competitive element of running. This is also an excellent way to get used to pacing yourself and knowing when to speed up to get the edge over your competitors.
The most important part of your training should be endurance training as, unlike many other races which will take around an hour to complete, you need to keep a lot in reserve for the final leg. And your endurance will determine how much you have in your tank when the running starts.
But the first part of any training schedule should be to get the right equipment and Eureka Cycle Sports can kit you out for every leg.
