What To Expect
Is this your first triathlon? Welcome! We're happy you're here and we aim to do everything we can to make it a fun experience. You will be challenged, no doubt, but preparation is the surest way to a successful race, and more importantly, a good time.
A few things to note: Make sure you take the time to prepare your body, gear, and your mind well before the race. Race day is not the time to wear new equipment or apparel. Make sure you've tested and broken in your gear well beforehand.
Some gear items that are recommended:
Bike repair kit
Warm and comfy clothing for before and after the race
Bike helmets are REQUIRED to race.
Eat a healthy dinner the night before and light breakfast on race day.
