Get the gear



Wetsuits are optional but they help you swim by providing buoyancy, this helps you float and eases your passage through the water.

They also provide warmth as swimming in open water can get very cold.

Speedo has three levels of wetsuit depending on your level.

Wetsuits start at £150 from Speedo

You can also hire wetsuits for £50 for the entire season.



Swimming costume

A good swimming costume will make your swim section better but remember you're going to stay in this throughout our event so make sure you buy something that doesn't rub - you need to be able to run and swim in your costume. A Triathlon bikini is also an option.
