Can I use my surfing or shortie wetsuit? Resolved

  • Yes. Any neoprene wetsuit is suitable.
  • But please note: Non-triathlon wetsuits may not be as flexible around the arms and shoulders to facilitate good swimming technique.
  • We recommend that you practice with your wetsuit in the weeks prior to the race to get accustomed to the fit while swimming.

Need Some Swim Practice?

  • It is a fully marshalled event, covering the exact course but without the stress of a race environment.
  • For details see
  • SwimAthy is open to everyone and is a favourite among athletes preparing for long distance Ironman or Challenge events who want open water experience. It is also perfectly suited to first time triathletes who want to eliminate race nerves and acclimatise themselves.
