Wonder if we could start of list of Triathlon movies.

I'll start:

 

Sleeping With the Enemy.

 

in the beginning, she does an OWS, later she rides a bike with her new boyfriend and she's "on the run" from her abusive husband...

"What it takes"

Enemy of the State.

At the beginning, the senator does a shore start (okay, he's dead and in his car, but this isn't a LITERAL thing).

The guy that recorded the killing gets on a bike during his flight from the feds (and promptly gets killed by a bus -- or was it a fire engine?).

And the rest of the movie pretty much is running.

Breaking Away.

Okay, the biking part is pretty obvious.

But there's the scene where they're swimming at the quarry (with a flip turn even!).

And I'm sure they ran somewhere in there.

It's a relay. Mike does the swim, Dave does the bike, and Cyril runs away from the frat guys after the serenade scene.

Wizard of Oz:

The nasty school teacher/wicked witch of the west rides a bike with Toto in the basket in the back AND in a tornado; they are all running from flying monkeys at some point, and if you count the witch getting doused by a bucket of water as "swimming" then there you go! A stretch...but if a dead guy floating in a car counts, so does "I'm melting"

Flashdance.    But she did it out of sequence i think.  But there was riding a bike, running in place and she got wet.

The Goonies

They ride their bikes at the beginning, they run to get away from the crazy family and then they swim at the end when they are at the pirate ship.

I think i remember correctly.  Its been a long time since i have seen that movie.   "HEY YOU GUYS!!!"

Goldeneye

Bond racing his Aston against the Russian chickie in the Ferrari almost runs over a big pack of cyclists on the hill in the beginning.

Bond in a pool with some hottie.

Bond is always on the run.
