The Use of Camelbaks While Racing

Triathlon Event  Is the use of Camelbaks or other wearable hydration packs allowed in Triathlons?

Triathlon Event  Hi Eric,
Thank you for contacting!

Yes, Camelbaks have always been allowed in any races we’ve been involved in. If you have a genuine concern for a specific race because you heard something “through the grapevine”, you can always call or email the race officials and ask.

Be well,
