Get sponsored and if so, how do you sponsored? I really like to participate in triathlon events, but I am very poor. I do not know if I could get sponsorship or need a personal trainer? If not your all information you need to know about the team well. Today I learned that … Triathlon is not a cheap sport. First, if you are serious about this, you need a good bike, and if you're really serious, you probably have more than one bike, you would have a bike that is only used for training. Each event has entry fee, and you would be doing quite a bit of traveling to get to the facts, so you need any king of transportation. You also need equipment and clothing for other events. Sponsorship will mostly established athletes, who have a record to show. To begin, try to make one for fun, no expectations, you will quickly see if the sport is for you.
