Ironman / Half Ironman packing list

Like the title says… This was my list from last weekends race

Method…. I use some ikea tubs and set them up a few days before. If travelling by car, they get lids on and go with me. If travelling by plane, they get emptied and stuffed in my bags

Laid out for HIM Slovenia 2019

Rule: Nothing in the boxes must be untested, but I keep race gear separate from training gear over the last few days.

Tri suit
Swim skin
Caps – race and personal
Goggles – 2 pairs
