Triathlon Packing List – That’s a LOT of Stuff!!

Our triathlon is on Saturday!! And while we are both super excited, I’m also a little nervous about forgetting something – we are going to be four hours from home, in a small resort town, an hour away from a city of any decent size, so if we forget something, we are out of luck.

We are staying in a hotel with a full kitchen suite, so we will be preparing some of our own meals, so I’m including our food list as well. There is SO MUCH STUFF to bring!

I started my own list Monday, and several websites have very thorough lists, so between my list and theirs, here’s what I’m packing:

Swim:

Tri suit
Wetsuit
Goggles
Towels
Hair Elastics
Swim Cap
Sunscreen
Body Glide
Water to rinse feet

Bike/T1:

BIKE!!
Helmet
Shoes
Socks
Gloves
Sunglasses
Water Bottles
2-3 GU packets
Floor Pump
Spare tube
CO2 cartridge
Garmin
Heart Rate Monitor
Race Number Belt with Race number
Chap stick

Run/T2:

Running Shoes
Visor
Fuel Belt/Bottles

Other Items:
Baby Powder
Long pants and jacket
Advil/Tylenol
Camera
Glasses/Contacts
Road ID
iPod/iPhone
Sharpie
Garbage bags for wet gear
Hangers for wetsuits (for after race)
Bike lock
Triathlon Manitoba Membership card
Flip Flops

Food for Hotel:
Pasta
Sauce
Quinoa
Bananas
Peanut butter
Milk
Bread
Oatmeal
Cereal
Cheese
Hard Boiled Eggs
Fruit
Nuts
Granola Bars
Yogurt
Snacks for kids

I’m sure there will be other things that go into the bags tonight, but this is it for now. It’s getting close!!!

Special thanks to the following sites for terrific lists, each of which contributed at least one items to my list that I would have forgotten otherwise!

Trifuel Forums (you need to have an account and be logged in to find the link, but it’s free, and the list is excellent, and funny too!)

Really, we’ll manage even if we forget something, but I like to be prepared. I think we’re ready!!

    Wow that’s a crazy long list of stuff! I had no idea you needed so much stuff. It’s good that you made a list. We’re going on vacation in a few weeks and I’ve already got a huge list on the fridge so I don’t forget to pack important stuff. Good luck. I’ll check back over the weekend to hear your results.

      I’m a list person to begin with, and I like to start at the top and work my way down. Bruce just throws his stuff in a bag as he thinks of it. Works for him, but makes me crazy! 😉
