Wetsuit Rule

We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events, but this 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


Wetsuits 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 race day and and share the final result on the morning of the event.
