Do I need to wear a wetsuit?

Yes, a wetsuit is compulsory and it is your responsibility to ensure you have one on the race day. The wetsuit will not only keep you warm, but will also help you swim as it provides extra buoyancy. Wetsuits must be worn up to 25 degrees. Should the water temperature exceed 25 degrees wetsuits are not permitted and changes may be made at the event organisers discretion.

What do I wear underneath my wetsuit?

We recommend that you wear a tri-suit, but it is not compulsory. Regular sports kit is fine over a swim suit.

Can I listen to a personal music player whilst racing?

No. You will be unable to hear other competitors or the marshals when you are wearing one and consequently pose a threat to others.
