About the event

2012 was a big year for the UK, with the biggest sporting event in the world descending on London and a Diamond Jubilee to celebrate, it was party time on the streets of Great Britain. To commemorate, Human Race and British Olympic legend Daley Thompson launched a brand new multisport event designed to get everyone involved in the UK’s fastest growing mass participation sport – and now in its fourth year and with multiple distances on offer, there really is something for everyone!

Zone3 has quickly become one of the most exciting and successful brands on the market thanks to its high performance products which year on year have achieved the highest industry reviews based on speed, comfort, price point and innovation.

Zone3AdvanceZone3 are offering their Advance wetsuit as part of their hire service for Human Race. The Advance has won many awards including 220 Triathlon magazine’s “Best Buy” award and has become the market leader for first-timers and those on a budget. The suit is made from super flexible, highly buoyant neoprene for an assured swim performance.

  • Hiring a wetsuit for the season (25th March – 7th October 2016) from the Human Race Shop

WETSUIT RULE:

We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events. But the wearing of wetsuits in triathlon is governed by British Triathlon rules and is totally dependent on water temperature one hour before the start of the event.

Water Temperature Wetsuit Rule
Water Temp less than 14 degrees Wetsuits are COMPULSORY
Water temp 14 – 22 degrees Wetsuits are OPTIONAL
Water temp above 22 degrees Wetsuits are BANNED

We do say that wetsuits in fact help with buoyancy and warmth, so we strongly recommend that you wear one if they are optional. We will keep you updated with water temperature as we get closer to the event but at Dorney Lake it is almost always an optional wetsuit swim.

Zone3BIKE HIRE
