Our checklist includes all you need for swimming, biking and running through your competition plus optional gear.
We all know that we need a lot of gear for a triathlon competition, so we recommend all our athletes to make their own checklists, so their secure to remember everything on race day. We recommend to start packing all the gear in good time, so you not miss anything on race day.
You should always have tested your gear before race day. Don’t bring new and untested gear to race day. Test your bike the day before check-in and check your tri-suit, shoes, energy etc. in the time leading up to the event. Remember you have a lot of opportunities to test your gear through your training. You have trained so much for the specific event, so not testing the gear would be stupid. The most important for race day is that you have a fantastic day, so keep in mind that everything you can do before the event is valuable on race day, so you can keep the focus on the race.
