February 09, 2022
When you’re new to joining triathlons, it’s understandable that you’re at a loss on what gear you should have. You might be tempted to buy the newest and trendiest in the triathlon market without even considering if your bank account can afford it. You might think it’ll help you better during training and on race day. Maybe you’re intimidated by the pro triathletes that you want to at least keep up with your gear. Not everyone has the money to spend though. You don’t need to invest a lot of money on triathlon gear; most likely, you have been cycling, swimming, and running for a while so you would pretty much have everything you need already to finish and even ace your first ever triathlon. Remember you should only have two goals and those are to have fun and to finish the race. Considering that you are a beginner, you will more likely join a short-distance triathlon. Since the goal is to not have a record-breaking finish, then the number one choice factor for your gear should be your personal comfort. You should know your body and what its needs are. Here are everything you need as a beginner in the triathlon space.
