Triathlon on a budget

training for ironman

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to compete in Triathlons, regardless of their budget. We understand that the cost of equipment can be a barrier for some, but we are here to provide valuable insights and guidance to help you obtain the necessary equipment while being cost-sensitive.


Firstly, it's important to prioritise the most essential equipment items needed to compete in Triathlons, such as a wetsuit, swimming goggles, bike, helmet, kit &  shoes. You don't need to purchase the most expensive equipment right away. Instead, focus on purchasing quality equipment that will last and provide a good level of performance. Consider buying second-hand equipment from online marketplaces or purchasing from retailers during sales.


Another option is to rent equipment. Many triathlon stores and retailers offer equipment rental services for a fraction of the cost of buying. This can be a great way to save money while still having access to high-quality equipment.


It's also important to research local triathlon clubs and events. Many clubs offer equipment loan programs or have connections to local retailers that offer discounts for club members. Local events may also have equipment rental services or may allow participants to borrow equipment from other athletes. 


When it comes to bikes, consider purchasing a used bike or a more affordable entry-level model. You can always upgrade later once you have more experience and a better understanding of your needs. But make sure you use your cyclist friend with his/her knowledge.
