So I was wondering if anyone has done this event? I have done a Sprint and I have done a half marathon once and the biking is no problem. What I am worried about is how much I need to train fro the swim. The distance is an International. Should I get a wetsuit? thanks.

Wet suit legal, I wear one.

Swim enough so you are comfortable with your results for the distance.
