    whats harder, a marathon or a triathlon?

    Posted this in the misc, got no response, lets see what you guys think.

    This fat prop on my rugby team was arguing that a marathon is harder than a triathlon. This fat bastard claims to have run 3 marathons. Which, if true, is the dumbest thing i can think of for him to do as a prop. He has no arms and skinny ass legs. This doesn't help his game in the least and he brags about it constantly. meanwhile he has a sizable beer gut.

    marathon is running 42.195 kilometers or 26 miles 385 yards,

    triathlon is done at three different amounts of distances:
    Sprint triathlon (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run),
    Olympic distance (1.5km swim, 40km ride, 10km run),
    Half Ironman distance (1.9km swim, 90km ride, 21.1km run),
    Ironman triathlon distance (3.8km swim, 180km ride, 42.2km run)

    i've only done a sprint triathlon, did it in less than an hour.

    I can't wait to do a sprint triathalon.
    I think a marathon is harder than any triathalon olympic distance and below. After that, a triathalon probably takes more prep.

    No question, a triathlon. A 2.5 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run is going to be more difficult than a 26.2 mile run.

    Btw, if you did a sprint in less than an hour, congrats on the win. You would beat out the elite athletes at my last sprint tri by 20 minutes. You must be a professional tri athlete?

    My opinion is certainly biased...
    However, if Olympic distance triathlons are harder in the training process (three disciplines compared to one) I think they're easier when it comes to the competition. Switching from swimming to cycling to running makes the whole experience less monotone if compared to a marathon.
    But when it comes to Half-Ironman or Ironman that's a whole completely different story!

    if you cannot swim, a triathlon is harder. I'd say a marathon is easier than a half or full ironman.

    That said, it's all about intensity. Lots of people walk marathons and ****. If you aren't going all out, does it count?
