The following gear is needed for training and racing triathlons.
For the Swim: Swimsuit / Tri Uniform, Cap and Goggles
For the Bike: Helmet, any bike is okay but road bikes are recommended, shoes, race belt
For the Run: Shoes and possibly a running hat.
What if my athlete does not have a road bike? We do have a loaner bike program but the expectation is the athlete does have a safe bike they may ride when a loaner bike is not available. There are only 8 loaner bikes and lending these out is based on skill level, fit, need, and availability. The loaner bike program allows young athletes to try a road bike without making a big financial commitment.
