Human Race triathlons and duathlons are governed by British Triathlon. All entrants are required to abide by all applicable British Triathlon rules and regulations.
The relevant rules and regulations can be read in the BTF Rulebook.
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. Read the wetsuit rule for triathlons HERE.
