Sure it's hard to beat the orange snow fencing and laminated numbers, but upon closer inspection, It's the Medical Tent.   It took a few years to come up with this concept, but we've done it now for our  last 3 races and it's a GREAT change from the typical  detached First Aid Station.

Why did we  put the aid tent in transition?  More than a few times at our races we've seen athletes in medical after their finish with an issue that was minor when it began and not-as-minor at the finish.  If we had been able to offer a bandage, help retrieve an inhaler, apply a sling, or remove a little embedded gravel earlier in the race, it would have made for a better, safer, or more comfortable finish line experience.  

As athletes  enter the transition area from the swim, you'll easily see the medical tent on the left with a big red + on the side of it.   Most often you'll find Val Newell  or Michelle Murphy inside (see right) .    They keep an  eye on you as you come and go anyhow and can quickly address  any minor issues while you're still competing in the race.  They might approach you and ask if you need some help - or you could seek them out, of course.    They'll quickly assess and discuss what your options are and work with you to get you across the finish line.

All the staff and  volunteers  at Raise the Bar   keep your finish line experience as the  big priority on race day.  Our Medical staff and location is a powerful tool to that end.   Val and Michelle are experienced athletes - just like many of you - and they know how important finishing is. They'll be making sure you get across the line safely and in one piece. (or a few pieces professionally patched together if necessary).  And  while we hope you don't have the occasion to warrant their expertise on race day, please remember they're close by...and they're watching you.

Sports is important, health is more important but life is the most important of all. Nowadays, a lot of people are engaging in sports especially triathlon. And as most of us know, this is difficult. That is why it is important to have good and fast first aid stations in the said events not only for triathlons but in all sports events.

I am 100% at your back for this road safety forum you are having. It's a great way of instilling to the people the value of safety when on the road and thus, preventing any accidents from happening. In our country, the rate of minor road accidents seems to rise so this forum would be helpful especially if attended by people mainly using the road for transportation.
