Triathlon race day checklist – All your essential gear

Doing a triathlon race, there is a lot of gear that you need to bring. Combining three sports into one is great, but logistics-wise? Well, it leaves you with something to think about. That is why we created this Triathlon race day checklist for all to download.

You have been training structured and disciplined for months coming up to this event. This is the culmination and reward of all that training! It would be a shame if you find yourself at the race having forgotten something that is essential for your racing. 

Take the chance to win a training program with us, joining our Race time prediction challenge. Where you try to estimate your finish time, the closest person to his/hers guess wins!

There is a lot to think about pre-race. So let us help you take your mind of some of it, helping out with this checklist for packing. Just follow our list, and you will have all the gear you need! 

Examples of things that can be easy to forget. Probably not the bike, but a bicycle pump is really easy to miss in packing. Same with a towel. 

We suggest printing this list and ticking off the boxes while packing. That way, when you arrive at your race, you can focus on your race. Not where you put that body glide.

This packing list is also perfect as inspiration for the beginner triathlete who os thinking about what gear you will need in your adventures in endurance sports.

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” Alexander Graham Bell
