Cara Monica,
la ricerca non è stata facile e la maggior parte dei nomi rimangono invariati perchè non esiste alcun corrispettivo nella lingua italiana.

"Boat crews stand in knee-deep water holding their boats about 23 m apart. After the starting signal, crews row around the assigned turning buoys positioned approximately 400 m from the start and return to the beach. The finish is determined by any part of the hull crossing the finish line from the seaward side, between the designated flags."

"Flag Race
Chuck Wight on Alazar (2000)
A triangular pattern similar to that of the barrel race is used, with the substitution of a pole in place of barrel number three. The two other barrels have a bucket that is 3/4 full of rabbit pellets placed on top of it, and a flag in one of these buckets.
The rider may choose to run to the right or left and as they pass the first barrel, they pickup the flag, race around the pole, back to the second barrel, and attempt to place the flag in the second bucket. If the rider knocks over the first bucket or the pole, a 5-second penalty will be assessed. If the rider does not pick up the flag or misses the second bucket, no time will be given. If the second bucket or barrel are knocked over, the rider is disqualified. Sounds easy, but try this at 30 plus miles per hour on the back of a horse."

"How to Win a Flag Race
Flag racing is one of many gymkhana games played on horse back. It involves placing a stick or 'flag' into a bucket (often placed onto of a 55 gallon barrel) and then picking up a second stick from a second bucket/barrel. The winner is the one who finishes in the shortest time so players frequently attempt this at a gallop! The following instructions assume you will be making right hand turns. If your event allows you to request going the other way and you will be making left hand turns simply place the flag in your "left" hand and follow the instructions as below."

"Ironman è uno sport multidisciplinare individuale ed è articolato su tre prove che si svolgono senza soluzione di continuità e sono comuni a tutti gli atleti: nuoto, ciclismo e corsa. Sono quindi classificabili come Ironman unicamente le prove di Triathlon che si svolgono sulle distanze ufficiali di 3800 metri per la parte di nuoto, 180 Km per la corsa in bicicletta e 42,195 Km la classica "maratona" podistica; la vittoria va all'atleta (Ironman) che copre l'intero percorso nel minor tempo, di fatto colui che giungerà per primo sul traguardo al termine dell'ultima prova, cioè la maratona finale."

"March past team must comprise of not less than twenty (20) persons. Team parading with less than the specified number of participants will automatically receive a deduction of five (5) uniformity points.
Each team will be afforded a three (3) minute period for their display. This time will be monitored as soon as teams march to a point specified by the Parade Commander, and ends after the last person has passed the saluting dais. Teams exceeding this time limit will be assessed a five (5) point penalty.
Queens/Kings must be attired in the registered colours of their respective teams and must match the overall scheme and theme of their team.
Queens/Kings will be afforded the use of other equipment such as batons, twirlers, pompoms etc. No attire resembling that of Carnival costumes would be allowed. Queens/Kings wearing such attire would be penalised by five (5) points for attire/colours/design."

In quest'ultimo caso di dovrebbe trattare di una parata che rappresenti delle figure del passato. Magari aggiungi una nota che dia una spiegazione di cosa si tratti.

Spero comunque di esserti stata utile!
