Here is a reference to the standard distances for Duathlons and Triathlons across a variety of organisations including Powerman, Challenge, ETU, ITU and Ironman. An “Ironman” is a branded term and other organisation CANNOT call their event an Ironman distance…hence they sometimes use the term Iron Distance or Half Iron (not sure if that is allowed either but they use it!).
