Train Smart

As a Triathlete you need to focus on your core competency areas. You need to plan the whole race the way you would design a battlement.

Gear Up

No need to buy that fancy carbon frame bike for your first attempt at Triathlons. A hybrid that is compatible to you can do wonders for you.

Make sure your other gear is in pristine condition with this small check list.

  1. Running shoes

  2. Helmet

  3. Sunglasses

  4. Swimming goggles,

  5. Bike shoes (Optional)

  6. Wet suit



Swim More Often

Efficiency in water can give you an extra advantage. Save precious time and energy during the race.

All it takes is to work on your swimming technique and it can do wonders to your overall race performance.



Be Race Ready!

Make sure you have all your race preps sorted. Do attend the pre-event BIB Expo. Practice your transitions by doing a mock duathlon/triathlon once in a week. Remember, prepare from the sidelines to glory.
