You have a number of training options for this race. What training program are you following and why?

After I picked up my registration packet on Friday, I walked up to T-2 with my run gear (hat, shoes, nutrition belt) and set everything up. It's still light out and didn't want to feel rushed for time race day morning.

You will receive three bags at check-in: morning clothes, swim (t1) and run (t2). You can set up T2 during certain hours the night before or morning of...they are about 1 mile apart. Your rack in T1 and T2 will be marked with your number. Your bag should be marked with your number. Morning clothes bags are dropped off in bins near the portajohns. When you come into t1 after your swim (and before you bike) you will put your swim gear in the swim bag and drop it in a bin near your rack. At the end of the day you pick up t2 and then pick up your other bags nearby. WTC runs a well organized event in Oceanside. Remember to put extra fuel in your t2 bag. I recommend walking through both transitions at home - put t1 in one room and t2 in another. Then you'll know what goes in each bag.

Here's what I did for Oceanside transitions:
-early race morning, rode my bike to T2 (my hotel was about a mile away), and set up T2.
-rode my bike to T1 (race start). It's only a few blocks away.

make sure you have your T2 stuff in a separate bag, it'll make your time at T2 in the morning more efficient.

Not sure about Ironman Night. Some of the events have athlete dinners, but I don't know about this.

Having a split transition area is new to me, how exactly is it set up for Oceanside, and how did you set yours up last year?

Secondly what is Ironman Night? it is scheduled on thursday night

Thanks, Dave

I've updated the calendar with swim/bikes on most Sundays through March. Highly recommend that Oceanside participants attend to acclimate to water temp and open water swimming. Yes, the Oceanside swim is in the relatively calm waters of the harbor but you will appreciate being accustomed to cold water.
