―GTA V Website

Triathlons are multi-stage marathons in Grand Theft Auto V where contestants need to swim, ride a bike and run throught the marathon.

DescriptionEdit

"Tests of endurance for people with too much time on their hands that require a ton of expensive specialized equipment. Triathlons are so inclusive!"
— GTA V Manual

There are a total of 3 Triathlons in GTA V. The first one becomes available after the mission Daddy's Little Girl, and the other two are unlocked as the player completes the previous thiathlons. Each character may run any of the triathlons, so long as they are unlocked.

The Triathlons in GTA V are made up of Swimming, Cycling, and Running. They are a great way to boost the player's stamina. Medaling in all three events is required for 100% completion. The player receives no reward for completing the triathlons other than potential increases to stamina, strength, and lung capacity. Unlike the Beat the Cock! triathlons, the triathlons in GTA V may be accessed on any day, at any time of the day or night.

The opponents in GTA V's triathlons use a catch-up/rubberband AI system, meaning that they will regularly catch up on the player or gain the lead momentarily regardless of your speed or tactics. On occasion however, especially in the Coyote Cross Country Triathlon, the system will glitch out and one or more opponents will receive a massive speed boost, shooting several checkpoints ahead of the player, however, they will eventually slow down during the final leg.

  • Put an elastic band around the X or A button (PlayStation and Xbox) And hold the trigger in position, for the straight part of the race.
  • For the running and swimming parts, enter first person mode and hold X or A button (PS4 and Xbox One) for an easier method to speed up.
