I have been doing triathlon for the last few years and I am getting more and more people around me looking to do their first triathlons.

There is much information on the interweb about training plans and other tips to get you to the finish on time but the thing I found that was the most missing that I could not find was what to bring on a triathlon.

I am known to always forget one thing, I am like that guy that always come back home twice home when he goes out because he forgot something. And since triathlon you have so much to bring it fast became a nightmare if I don’t get organized and make a checklist.

So here it is or my version of it, this may help you to kickstart your own list for what to bring.
