Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to postpone the Impetus Triathlon to 2021.

Our number one priority is the safety of attendees. With ongoing concern about mass participation events and spectating, we did not want to risk any event which might endanger people. We will confirm the exact date change later this year. However, we expect the event to be September 2021.

If you have any questions, wish to register your interest for 2021, or are interested in taking on a virtual challenge event for Impetus please contact

Zone3 has won more industry design awards than any other wetsuit brand, including the first ever and only 10/10 review from 220 Triathlon Magazine and many others including Best in Class, Top Value and Game Changer of the year.

Their product-first philosophy and commitment to excellence ensures a range suitable for athletes of all levels, helping maximise performance and enjoyment within the sport.

You can:

  • Hire a wetsuit for a month for £50
  • Hire a wetsuit for the season (until 1st October 2020) for £79

Please note: the booking deadline to get your wetsuit in time for the event is one week before the event.

If you’d like to hire or purchase 10 or more wetsuits in one booking, you can email with all the details (specifying the event) and Zone3 will be able to arrange a group booking for you.



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.


British Bike Hire will be providing bike hire at Human Race events up and down the country.
