RACE DAY ADVICE AND TIPS FOR YOUR NEXT TRIATHLON – by Kevin Howell for Tri & Run
For many of us competing in our first few triathlons can be simply overwhelming. The troubling part is that generally it’s not the physical part of the race that is causing the stress but the logistics. What time do I arrive? Where do I go? How do I rack my bike?
