About the event
Eton Dorney Rowing Lake will transform into a fun-filled festival of triathlon, as it plays host to the third annual Nuffield Health Tri Relays – an event dedicated entirely to triathlon relays. Traditionally a solo sport, competitors of all natures, from club athletes through to groups of friends, families and colleagues, will get together in teams of three to a take on a combination of swimming, cycling and running.
The Nuffield Health Tri Relays offers three formats for competitors to choose from:
Team Relay – 500m Swim, 21.2km Bike, 5km Run
Grab a couple of mates, get yourself to Dorney and each take on one element of the triathlon. Perfect if you want to get involved in the camaraderie of triathlon and love swimming but aren’t as strong at cycling or running (or vice versa).
Team Time Trial – 500m Swim, 31.8km Bike, 5km Run
This format is perfect if you and two mates all love triathlon. All three of you will swim together, cycle together and run together as a unit. Your final time will be taken when all 3 of you cross the finish line. Normal drafting rules do not apply – we will set you off first on the day so that you can draft and use each other to post the fastest time possible.
Triple Relay – 500m Swim, 15.9km Bike, 5km Run
Once again, you need a team of 3, all 3 of you will take on the swim leg in a relay format – you swim, pass the metaphorical baton to your mate who swims, before the final team member then swims. You will then all move on to the cycle leg in the same order as you did the swim, before all finishing up with the the run in the same order. So it will be swim, swim, swim, bike, bike, bike, run, run, run. This format has the beauty of a leisurely transition between each leg while you wait for your team mates to finish their legs. There will be a specific transfer area in both swim transition and run transition for the handover of timing chips to occur and we will also provide an area for the first 2 team members to join the final member to cross the line together.

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’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.
Wetsuits will be available to hire for the event with more details to be added here and communicated to entrants shortly.
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.
