Are there any BTF rules regarding the size of logos on Tri kit at BTF sanctioned events?
ITU are quite strict, understandably http://www.triathlon.org/uploads/docs/itusport_competition-rules_2017.pdf
But couldn't find anything in the BTF rules

Thanks

logo size only applies to kit worn at ITU/ETU events - and not to UK events run under BTF rules.

however, Rule 2.1.c.xiii - Avoid displaying any kind of demonstration of political, religious or racial propaganda - needs to be considered as this also covers logos on kit irrespective of the logo size.

you'd also need to look at other country rules if an athlete is planning to wear this kit outside the UK, as they may have different views on this.

Nice one, thanks Buddha. That's what I thought, but just wanted to double check. Any as you say, the only thing I could see in BTF rules was 2.1.c.xiii. It'll only be a coaching company logo, so nothing controversial
Thanks
Sid

there's a French transport company called Fercam - that would be a good sponsor logo..... Laughing

I hadn't really given this much consideration, probably foolish of me!

My tri suit carries the logo of a charity that I'm raising money for. This year I'm entered into the Swashbucker middle distance in a couple of weeks and Ironman Wales.

As it isn't a 'company' logo as such do you think I'll encounter any issues?

I don't think so as long as the charity isn't a controversial one that violates Rule 2.1.c.xiii - "Avoid displaying any kind of demonstration of political, religious or racial propaganda"
I couldn't find anything in the Ironman rules either http://cms.ironman.com/sitecore/shell/Controls/Rich%20Text%20Editor/~/media/BE213FC6232149E4BAE8D97798C106FF.ashx

no - you'll be fine. lots of kit have charity logos. as SidSnot says, as long as it's not overtly racist, religious or political you're good to go.

Hey Timmy, I thought about the Swashbuckler but the whole 'rego on Saturday only' thing and reports of a very very cold swim last year didn't appeal.

I'm doing IM Wales also (allegedly Wink )

Hey FatPom,

I'm really looking forward to the Swashbuckler, not so much the swim though. I did a practice open water swim last week and it was 12 degrees, it wasn't massively fun.

I've heard so many good things about Ironman Wales so I can't wait for it. Plenty of training still to do before I'll be ready!

factually - rule 2.8.c.vi

Where the suit has a front zipper, the following apply:
- for middle and long distance events: the zipper (which must be no longer than 40cm) may be undone no lower than the breastbone, however it must be completely fastened during the final 200m along the finishing
straight.
- for sprint and standard distance events: the zipper must be completely fastened at all times unless there is underneath a top covering up to the neck; in any case the suit must be completely fastened during the
final 200m along the finishing straight.
