THE SPORT OF SPECTATING – WHAT TO PACK FOR RACE DAY

Ok, so your triathlete is packing their T bags and laying out their gear the day before the race….spectators need to do this, too! Putting careful thought into what you bring to the race is critical.

IRONMAN 70.3 WC LAS VEGAS – FOOD, FUN, & SPECTATING
