Title: Triathlon Transition Checklist
Post by: ACE on April 02, 2018, 08:44:47 PM
One of my mentors provided me this list early on and I have forwarded it on to others many times.  It's by no means exhaustive, but is a great reference for people who are just getting started in the sport.  Please feel free to make any suggestions for updates.  I would love to clean this up over time and hope it finds good use by others.


DRY CLOTHES FOR AFTER RACE/ COMFY FLIP-FLOPS your feet will thank you

I made this checklist before my first 70.3. The left side is my list. The right side in the colors is my transition layout. The bottom right is actually the order that I did everything when I was in transition. I didn't look at it during the race, but had it with me pre-race and studied/practiced my order over and over. This way on race morning I didn't have to think about anything, just had to look at the sheet to remind me of everything.

  • TRANSITION BAG - for gear (back pack style is a good choice since you may push or ride bike to the race staging area)
  • BIKE
I dont think the entire list uploaded when you posted, Ace.

I realize you are from the midwest, but I see you have a run flask...do you put water or whiskey in that?  ::)
