Hi, I'm Jodie Swallow, one of Britain's top triathletes.

Triathlon is a long distance mix of swimming, cycling and then running.

Do you think you're tough enough for one of the hardest events in sport?

Jodie's top triathlon tips:

  • Don't go off too fast - it's a long race so conserve your energy

  • Be prepared - races are won or lost at the transition stage

  • Have fun and smile when you cross that finishing line!

    So what are you waiting for? Get out and give triathlon a go!
