Aquathons are a continuous two staged race involving swimming and running. They are similar to triathlons with the key difference being the lack of a cycle leg, and have been around in various forms since the early 20th century in ocean lifeguard competitions. The modern international standard lifeguard distance is 400m run, 400m swim, 200m run.
