YOUR TRIATHLON RACE DAY EQUIPMENT CHECK LIST: Print this list and check it twice before you leave for your race so you don't end up with a DNF.

It's race day and you don't want to forget a thing! You have invested hours upon hours of training not to mention the investment in your equipment, your race day fees and travel expenses. There are so many items to remember. Our athletes have been known to forget super important items like their bike helmet, running shoes or swim goggles.
