There are also two team races, namely the Sprint Relay race (750 m swim + 20 km bike + 5 km run), and the Olympic Relay race (1500 m swim + 40 km bike + 10 km run).

Children aged between 9 and 12 can compete in the Aquatlon race (200 m swim, 1.25 km run), or the Duatlon race (1.25 km run, 5 km bike, 1.25 km run). There is also a special race for the athletes’ families, friends, and colleagues: the Beach Run with a length of 4 km.
