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!
Timings will be confirmed one month before the event.
Human Race triathlons and duathlons are governed by the British Triathlon Federation. All entrants are required to abide by all applicable British Triathlon rules and regulations.
The relevant rules and regulations can be read in the BTF Rulebook.

British Triathlon Rule Number 8.1 states “Any equipment that acts as an impediment to hearing or concentration is prohibited from use during an event (including transition). This includes, but is not limited to, mobile telephones (which should be switched off if stored in transition), personal stereos and MP3 players.”
Whilst having a BTF licence covers your liability to take part in our events it doesn’t cover your equipment. Why not check out the equipment section and our partner Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance to see what they can offer?
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. Read the wetsuit rule for triathlons HERE.
We’ve teamed up with Zone3 to offer you some of their great range of wetsuits that are perfect for the event for you to hire or purchase.
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.
Zone3 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.
You can purchase or hire one of their leading wetsuits to make sure you’re fully prepared for your event. The 2017 purchase and hire options will be announced shortly.
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.
You can hire a fully serviced and cleaned bike perfect for the event from our partners British Bike Hire.
British Bike Hire is one of the UK’s largest bike hire businesses who specialise in delivering great product for all categories of riders and provide excellent service. They offer a range of bikes to hire or purchase including: leisure, hybrid, mountain, racing and triathlon specifications.
The event will be held at the Olympic rowing venue for the 2012 Olympic Games.
