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.

Zone3AdvanceZone3 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 one of their leading wetsuits to make sure you’re fully prepared for your event. The options are:


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.


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.
