About the event

With a 750m swim, a safe closed-roads 21.2km draft legal bike course followed by a 5km run course up and down the lake, this is probably the flattest triathlon in the UK.

This event is a qualifying race for both the 2018 (Gold Coast) and 2019 (Lausanne) World Championships. The level of interest in competing for the Great Britain Age-Group Team at ITU World Championships is higher than ever, so join fellow aspiring team members and race to earn the right to wear the Great Britain tri-suit.

If you’d rather not pit yourself against the best of the triathlon field, just come down to race in the Eton Sprints against other like-minded triathletes on a fast, flat course with a great atmosphere. All Eton Sprints entrants will be in separate waves to the Qualifier event based on gender and age.

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.
