Will I be able to wear a wetsuit?

By |November 16th, 2013|

The wetsuit guidelines set forth by USA Triathlon state:

USAT rules state that competitors may wear wetsuits if the water temperature is 78 degrees or lower.
USAT rules also state that if the water temperature is between 78.1 – 83.9 degrees, competitors may wear wetsuits but will not be eligible for awards.
If the water temperature is 84 degrees or above, participants may not wear wetsuits.

The official water temperature will be taken by our USA Triathlon race officials each race […]

Historically, Lake Arrowhead water temperatures have been in the mid 70’s / low 80’s for August. Wetsuits have been allowed in 14 out of the 22 races since 2006.

We will post unofficial lake temperatures on Facebook starting Wednesday of race week.

The official water temperature will be taken by our USA Triathlon race officials each race morning.
