After the best part of a year training, you’re finally ready to take on your Ironman. No matter where in the world you are, whether you’re heading for a local event or a race on the other side of the globe, keeping on top of all the kit you need can be a nightmare.
You have already decided that one sport is not enough for you, so you live in constant danger of turning up on race-day only to find that you have forgotten something crucial. You might be able to run a short triathlon without your trusty socks, but that sort of oversight is likely to cause you all sorts of problems during an Ironman marathon.
We have created a visual Ironman kit list to help with your organisation in the run-up to race day. There will be plenty of other things you personally like to have with you for your race, but the list covers all of the essentials. You’ll see that all the kit is divided up into their respective stages, so it should be nice and easy to pick out the kit you need to take, as well as remind you of the extra bits and pieces you might not have thought of.
