Wetsuits & Water Temperature

The race referee will make a ruling on the use of wetsuits on race morning. No decision will be made prior to race morning.
The referee makes use of a formula taking water temperature and ambient air temperature into account.

The ITU (International Triathlon Union) rules state the following regarding the use of wetsuits:

Ages 12-18 (Juniors)

Water temperature below 14oC – wetsuit use compulsory
Water temperature between 14oC and 19.9oC – wetsuit use optional
Water temperature 20oC and above – wetsuit use forbidden

Ages 19+ (Seniors)

Water temperature below 14oC – wetsuit use compulsory
Water temperature between 14oC and 21.9oC – wetsuit use optional
Water temperature 22oC and above – wetsuit use forbidden

The September and April races are usually wetsuit optional races and the January race wetsuit illegal. This is a guideline only; there have been exceptions to this.

Race Age

The race an athlete may enter is automatically determined by their age on 31 December 2020.
