Again this year, residents of The Mather participated in a triathlon, competing on foot, on bycicles and in the swimming pool.

Somewhat modified from the ultra-competitive Iron Man, the Mather Triathlon pitted residents against their own best time rather than each other. Residents could walk outside or on a treadmill for one part; the bicycle event took place on indoor equipment; and the swimming pool was the third venue.
