Triathlon/Duathlon Race Transitions: 
How to be Efficient, Safe & Fast! 
Wednesday, August 9 at 6:00 pm

Deer Path Branch, 144 West Woodschurch Rd. Flemington

Most participants in triathlons and duathlons consider the "transitions" to be the 4th sport in the race event.  It should come as no surprise that significant time can be gained (or lost) during the two (2) transitions (better known as T1 and T2).  

How do we negotiate the "transition area" in the most efficient manner possible?  This workshop is intended to provide the participants with many tools, information and expert guidance on proper triathlon/duathlon transition strategies, including many of the following topics:

  • Setup - equipment lists and transition area layout, including best organization tips
  • Rules - a review of current USAT rules which will govern the race
  • Safety - how to avoid potential mishaps while negotiating the transitions
  • Etiquette - learn the unwritten rules of transitions, and how to best respect your fellow competitors
  • Special Techniques - "tricks of the trade", and other secrets of the transition
  • Other - dealing with unexpected situations, while minimizing unnecessary stress.
