Paratriathlon Virtual Combine

SEPTEMBER 2022 PARATRIATHLON VIRTUAL COMBINE

Calling all Paratriathletes! Are you or someone you know looking to be the next Team USA Paralympic hopeful? USA Paratriathlon is hosting another virtual combine this September to help find and recruit new talent. This September, athletes can complete a swim and run combine test and submit their results here beginning Sept. 12.

COMBINE DETAILS

  • Athletes will have until Sept. 30 to achieve their best verifiable metrics for the Virtual Combine Test:
    • 400-meter swim (yards also acceptable, but please specify when submitting results) 
    • 1-mile run – preferably on a track, but if not possible, verifiable GPS data on a flat 1/2 mile out and back road/path

  • Athletes will submit individual times for both tests, but the goal is to have the fastest possible combined time you can achieve.

  • Starting Sept. 12, athletes can submit their results here. All submissions must be received by Sept. 30, 2022.
  • If there are issues submitting via the form provided, please submit results to benchmark@usatriathlon.org

  • Only one submission per/athlete allowed, so please wait until you are happy with your results before submitting.

  • We do not want athletes to train specifically for this challenge, we want these to be completed at the athlete's own leisure as part of their normal triathlon training.

  • These results WILL NOT qualify any athletes for any national or development team funding, but the results may be considered for future camp opportunities.

 

WHY IS USAT HIGH PERFORMANCE HOSTING A VIRTUAL COMBINE?

To collect data to help identify future Paralympians, help guide future USA Paratriathlon goals, provide an outlet for goal setting and friendly competition outside of racing, and give athletes an opportunity to gauge and track their current fitness and prepare and sharpen for potential future racing opportunities.

 

These results are very helpful for the future of our Elite Paratriathlon development programs, so please spread the word and let's get as many athletes involved with this as possible!

 

Please note these results have no impact on current national team funding, they are specifically for the benefit of identifying and developing future USA Triathlon High Performance programs/athletes.
