Your race pack will be ready and waiting for you to collect at the event, please check your email leading up to the event for your start time.
What is contained in my race pack for The London Triathlon?

Do I need a wetsuit for The London Triathlon?
A wetsuit is compulsory and it is your responsibility to ensure you have one on race day. The wetsuit will not only keep you warm, but will also help you swim faster as it provides you with extra buoyancy. Wetsuits must be worn up to 25°C. Should the water temperature exceed 25°C wetsuits are not permitted and changes to the event may be made at the organisers discretion. Surf and shortie wetsuits are allowed, but these are totally different to a triathlon specific wetsuit, which is designed for swimming and fits like a second skin.
Can I listen to a personal music player whilst racing in The London Triathlon?
No, you will be unable to hear other competitors or the marshals when you are wearing one and consequently pose a threat to others.
