Rules

Human Race triathlons are governed by British Triathlon, therefore all entrants are required to abide by all applicable British Triathlon rules and regulations, which can be found in the BTF Rulebook here.

BTF Membership Fee

If you’re not a current member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or the Welsh Triathlon Association, you will be liable to pay a £6 membership fee at registration (£3 for Youth & Juniors). We regret that we can take cash only, no credit/debit cards. Please show your race licence at registration if you are already a member.

Open Road Cycling

This event contains open road cycling on the Saturday, and all participants must abide by the Highway Code and Human Race Cycling Code – click here to read them.

MP3 Players

British Triathlon Rule Number 8.1 states “Any equipment that acts as an impediment to hearing or concentration is prohibited from use during an event (including transition). This includes, but is not limited to, mobile telephones (which should be switched off if stored in transition), personal stereos and MP3 players.”

Wetsuits

We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events. This is governed by British Triathlon rules and is totally dependent on water temperature one hour before the start of the event. We will always advise participants on the day what the current situation is – read the wetsuit rule for triathlons here (rule 4.2).
