WETSUIT HIRE

Detail of the wetsuit hire available for this event will be announced shortly.

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.
