Do Triathletes wear the same clothes?
In a triathlon you want to wear what is called a triathlon suit or a triathlon kit (a top/bottom combo) designed to be worn in the swim, the bike, and finally the run. In other words, you do not take it off! With the exception of the wetsuit (if needed), you need not put on any other piece of clothing.

It should be an athletic suit that is tight fitting with no frills (for safety purposes). Women often wear a sports bra and spandex shorts in the water. Then you can toss a bike shirt on after the swim.
Can you run in jammers?
They are intended for swimming, biking, and running in, but typically have a much thinner pad that your average cycling shorts. I wouldn’t want to bike or run in jammers, but it can be done. Putting shorts over them would probably just make matters worse on the bike, so if you do it, just wear the jammers.

Subject: RE: Ironman headphone usage? Nope, no headphones in any tri race. And WTC does not allow any communication devices so you can’t have your phone with you even if you are not using it for music.
Do you wear socks in a triathlon?
Most pro triathletes don’t wear socks for sprint and Olympic distance events and are wearing some for longer events. However, over a full Ironman distance, it is rather insignificant. The comfort of socks over such a big distance is, for most people, well worth those couple of seconds.
Can you wear a tri suit for the swim?
A “tri suit” is one choice of garment you can wear through the entire race. This helps make the suit more comfortable for swimming. After the swim, the thin pad dries out quickly and doesn’t feel like a big, wet diaper on the bike ride.
