Mandatory Gear


Silicone Swim Cap
Singlet Style Number Bib (OSFA)
Silicone Collapsable Drinking Cup
Restube (solo only) - Auto inflating personal flotation device (emergencies only)
Timing Chip & Ankle Strap (1 per team)


Goggles (recommended, not required)
Shoes - Use anything that’s light, offers good support, max grip, and drains easily.
Wetsuit - No exceptions. It’s not just about warmth it’s about buoyancy and an added layer of safety. We realize some may not need it but it’s a blanket policy and applies to everyone regardless of experience and ability. We do rent these through your registration as an add-on. If you didn't rent one but need to go back into your registration to add it. If you don't know how visit our HOW-TO page and click the add-ons button.
Whistle - If you’re a solo athlete there’s one built into the Restube we provide.
Compression Bandage (1 per team, 1 per solo) - Necessary just in case. Some areas are remote and the bandage is a life saver if someone slips and gets cut with no one around to help. CLICK HERE to see how to use it.
Tether (teams only) - Precaution in the case of bad weather OR becomes mandatory if you find yourself separating from your teammate during the swim.
