SPEED SUIT RULES
A competitor may wear a speed suit at any time during an event. Please note the ITU Rules definition of a speed suit: Trisuits must be 100% textile material, which is defined as materials consisting of natural and/or synthetic, individual and con-consolidated yarns used to constitute a fabric weaving, knitting and/or braiding (this generally refers to suits made only from nylon or lycra that do not have any rubberized material such as polyurethane or neoprene). Note that if a speed suit is worn, it MAY NOT be removed in transition and therefore must be worn for the duration of the event.
All competitors must wear the official swim cap that has been provided in the race kit. Swim cap color indicates your wave. Any other swim equipment is prohibited, including music players but not limited to compression socks. Do not discard the swim cap on the course. This is considered littering and will result in a penalty. It should be placed in transition with your gear.
