Pre-Race Packing List

Make Sure You’ve Got What You NeedRock Cliff Triathlon - Transition

You’ve spent months preparing for your race, so the last thing you need is to have your mind elsewhere hoping you didn’t forget something. We’ve prepared a checklist of things to bring for your triathlon so you can prepare your gear and be ready for the big day. While the list isn’t fully inclusive or may include things you won’t need it is worthy to review.

We’ll break them down according to Swim, Bike, Run and Personal:

Swim
Swim Cap
Wetsuit
Goggles (spare pair)
Anti Fog Solution
Ear Plugs
Swim Suit
Timing Chip (issued morning of …)

Bike

Helmet (Required to race)
Water Bottle/s & Cages
Aero Water Bottle Straw & Elastic
Bar-end plugs (Required to race)
USAT regulations require all handlebar and aerobar ends to be plugged. Since these can easily fall out, you should pack some extras just in case.
Why are these plugs required? If you crash, an unplugged bar-end can take a core sample of your leg/body.
