While we are back to live racing now for a few years, we had such a great turn out doing our Hecla from Home Virtual Triathlon in 2021, that we wanted to leave it as another option for people to continue to get involved and stay involved in the great sport of Triathlon!  With that, there will remain a Hecla from Home Virtual Triathlon event in 2024! 
 
The event will run over the course of a week, July 15-22, and that means you have ample time to finish the distances in race style, swim-bike-run, and all at once, or challenge it over the course of the week, building distance at your pace until you reach your registered distance.

Can I do the swim, bike, run in any order I choose?
  • For seasoned triathletes, we encourage you to make this race like - do the swim, bike, run in order and finish a discipline in its entirety before moving onto the next
  • However, you can chose to spread a discipline over multiple days, for example complete your swim one day and the next two days you split the bike, etc.  That being said, we know swim times and work schedules can be tricky, so as long as you get all the distances completed within the seven days, regardless of order, it still counts and you will still be entered for the grand prize. The important thing is to challenge yourself!
  • For relay teams, since one individual is solely responsible for one discipline, teammates can be working toward completion of their discipline concurrently. Meaning, you don’t need to wait for your teammate to finish the swim before you or your next teammate start the bike.
Where can I do the swim, bike, and run? 
  • This is Hecla From Home, so do it where you choose - inside or outside, pool or lake
  • If you complete the triathlon legs outside, please follow all rules of the road
  • You may also ride on Zwift, Rouvy, or Peloton
 
How do I report my distance?
  • Regardless of your category - individual or relay team, log your activities either manually or by uploading a GPS file.  From here submit your distances to heclatri@gmail.com by July 19 midnight.  
Are times verified?
  • No. For the virtual event, times and distances reported are on the honor system. You do not  have to post a time in order to log your distance. You may enter that you completed 10 miles and not enter an associated time. 
Do I log miles or kilometers?
  • Kilometers, please.
 
How do relay teams work? 
  • Just like a relay in a regular triathlon.  Depending on the event, two or three athletes must sign up for a relay team.  Record your individual results and submit normally referencing your team name.  Teammates may work toward completion of their discipline concurrently.
Will participants be rewarded based on times?
  • No, because participants will be riding in different locations, elevations, conditions, and courses. We will not award any prizes based on time—but that doesn’t mean you can’t challenge yourself.
