After the warm up of the Sprint distance triathlon on Saturday, the main event took place on Sunday morning.

Some 2,500 athletes participated in Sunday's triathlon after some 1,700 took part in Saturday's Sprint distance event (see related story).

Sunday's triathlon featured a 1.5K swim, a 40K bike and a 10K run.

Richard Adler, CEO of the Philadelphia Triathlon, says you have to make the decision to take part in this pretty far out:"The men and women who get ready for this race, whether they are doing the Olympic or the sprint are usually training anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to get ready for it."And spots for the Olympic distance triathlon were all filled up by November of last year.
