NEWBIE FAQS: (answers are from organizers of the Ateneo Aquathlon)

What is the proper attire? Since it wouldn’t be a long race (half day, done na) for the swim it’s the basic bathing suits for women and swimming trunks/shorts for the men. (Don’t wear board short or anything loose, it becomes a drag)

How is the transition from swimming to running? There will be a transition area where you may prepare all the stuff you need for the run leg. This will be an area only accessible to racers. Don’t worry about your baggage, there will be someone assigned to watch your stuff. There will be signs on the race route to keep everyone well informed.
