    Here are a couple: In the hours/days leading up to a triathlon there will be lots of athletes running and biking around the area of the venue. Please don’t run over them. On race morning, there may be an athlete who just didn’t get up in time, or got hung up somewhere and will be trying desperately to get to the start line. Please watch out for these folks, they’ll appreciate it.

      Hi Jasha. Thanks for the addition. Sounds like you’re speaking from experience. Plus, it’s usually still dark at this time…..

    Hello, ladies! I have just discovered your site and what a great source of information it is! Thank you. I am a fairly new (2 months?) tri mate and I will be joining my BF for his 70.3 in NH this August. I am very excited and want to be the best cheerleader he deserves. He has done several full IMs and several 70.3. He is passionate about them but not obsessed 🙂 Any tips for a virgin Sherpa?

      Hi Anna. Welcome. Gosh, where do we start with “virgin” tips. We’ve done a lot of posts on the subject. Probably best to start with a recent piece we did that included all the main articles just for newbies like you. It’s called, The Five Must Read Posts for The Sport of Spectating. Check anything else under The Sport of Spectating and Lifestyle categories for other help. Half races are much easier for spectators, time wise and they’re generally more compact. If you have a specific question, please ask away. We’re here for you. Again, so happy you found us….
