As Train For Aim turns 2 we look at the reasons why this growing organization and triathlon are taking Cairo and Alexandria by storm.

There has been a huge buzz lately about triathlon so we thought you might be wondering what the big deal is?! TFA’s first triathlon held at El Gouna last June was a huge success attracting around 200 participants, hundreds of fans, sponsors and media. The next TFA race is just around the corner this December in Sahl Hashish.

 1. Triathlon is just really cool to pronounce

Well it’s kind of like marathon but not, just remove mar- and replace it with tri- , add an ‘L’ in the back there and you have it, triathlon! Bal3ab triathlon definitely makes you sound cool!


 2. Three in One!

We love offers and that’s the great thing about triathlon and TFA.

You get to practice 3 sports in one race. You start swimming then bike and finally run. Then comes the real challenge of figuring out how to smile at the finish line for the cameras! Sometimes it’s impossible!
