DON’T FORGET TO BRING….
Equipment to bring to a Triathlon
With love, Susie
There is a lot of equipment, so it's best to use a large tote bag of some kind, which will hold it all. It's also easier to carry one larger tote, than several plastic bags! Remember to write your name on the bag. Choose a colorful bag! It will be easier to find during the event.
Friends and family to cheer you on
