What to Bring to Camp Each Day
- Your bicycle (Mountain or Upright Bike) and bike helmet
- Comfortable running/athletic shoes
- Swim goggles
- Water bottle
- Sunscreen (very important)
Please wear comfortable workout type clothing (shorts, t-shirt, sweats.) Do not wear jeans, boots or constrictive clothing. Sandals or thongs should only be worn (if needed) in the pool area. They will not be allowed on the bicycle or to run in. A change of clothing is a good idea, but not necessary. Please bring a healthy lunch each day. Watermelon, as a snack, will be provided.
Please DON'T bring: ipods, radios, toys, games etc. Jewelry is easily lost or can be broken when doing any sport, especially triathlon. Our advice is, don’t wear any jewelry to camp. Watches are okay. We are excited to share our love for the sport of triathlon with you and spend the week having fun together.
Get your rest each night and get ready for a memorable experience!
