Olympic Distance Triathlons are also known as Standard Distance Triathlons and comprise: a 1500m swim, a 40km bike and a 10km run. They generally always take place outdoors and as such the season in the UK tends to be when the water is warm enough for safe outdoor swimming - from mid-spring to mid-autumn.
