After swimming 1,500 meters (yards) in the chilly waters of the Danube River, the triathletes rode 40 kilometers (24.8 miles) on bicycles and ran 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) on a slippery, rain-drenched course centered around the Chain Bridge, Budapest's oldest span across the river.
The women's race is on Sunday.
