Dear All,

I have never tried any trialthon race b4 and I am interested to try the Splash 'n Dash Aquathon Series Race 2 as a starting point....I only did 10km race before and my time is about 44min.....hope you guys can give me some advices.  

Gear
- What kinda gear do I need? Example....swim cap? google?? Aquathon gears?

Swim cap -
Normal Swim cap is fine, isn't it?

Google / Contact Len -
- I am short sight for about 6.00.....do you guys recommend to wear contact len with google while I swim?

Aquathon Clothes -
- What kinda shoe should I wear?? I used to wear mizuno spacer fo 10km...can I use the same shoe for Aquathon?
- Is there any store in Hong Kong Island that sell Trialthon Clothes?

Technical
- Running for 10km in the Aquathon shouldn't be a big problem...but I am a bit concern with swimming.  I can use front stroke...but not as good as my frog stoke.  I am wondering is it common to use frog stroke during aquathon or triathon? And what is the average speed for swimming in the race?

- What is the procedure during the time it I get off from the water and begins to run? How can I change shoe and is there a place for me to put my stuff (like swim cap, etc...)

* Swim cap is always provided, no need to bring your own
* Use your own goggle
* I don't think there is any other Aquathon gears required
* Shoes are put at transition area and put them on once get out of the water
* Must wear top when running, T-shirt or trisuit is okay
* The mean swimmer  takes about 45min to complete 2k race or 50min for 2.2k race
* After get out of water, go to your box in transition area, drop down your cap and goggle in the box and wear the  shoes, bring the top (if not trisuit) and number belt (if not attached on the top), then go go go !!!
* Wear your top and number belt when running
Hope this can help, good luck, ching

No need to buy anything if you just want to try.
Just bring your swim pants, google and running shoe is fine.
Wearing contact lens is fine, and make sure your google is reliable enough.
There is a Triathlon shop in HK Island side, you can find that in http://www.triathlon.com.hk
