24 June 2017 • Dorney Lake, Berkshire
The stunning venue for the 2012 Olympics is transformed into a festival of open water swimming! Open water swimming in...
Human Race will be hosting an open water swim training day at Dorney Lake with 1½ hr sessions (45 minutes theoretical and 45 minutes swimming practical).
Starting an open water swim or triathlon with confidence is key for every competitor and our aim is to provide you with all the advice and support to help you achieve this. The training will be aimed at both complete novices doing their first open water swim as well as those who have completed 1-2 open water swims but still feel like they need help on improving their open water swimming technique early in the season. We will split you into groups according to your ability and the session will provide you with practical and theoretical advice by a number of triathlon experts, lead by the experienced swim coaches at RG Active.
Experts will provide you with advice on all aspects of the swim section including:
PROVISIONAL SESSION START TIMES: 9:00am / 10:45am / 12:30pm (Entrants will be notified by email of their session start time (based on ability) close to event day.
Minimum Age 8 on Event Day.
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 a Zone3 wetsuit to make sure you’re fully prepared for your event. More details about how to book yours will be added soon.
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.
