How does the race work?

The race distance will vary; check the race information page for specific race distances. Most people will choose a sprint distance triathlon for a first race. The transition area is the center of the race. After each part of the race, you will return to the transition area to get what you need for the next event.You will rack your bike in this area, usually according to you race number or age group. You'll also arrange all of the equipment you will need for the race on a towel below your bike. If it is your first race, make sure to get there early, so you have plenty of time to arrange your equipment.
