No, there are no special uniform requirements other than you must have your torso covered for the bike and run only. There is no obligation to have your name / country printed on your uniform and there are no restrictions on the zipper. However, racing suits must not extend lower than the knee or past the shoulder. In the event of a non-wetsuit swim athlete’s suits must not contain any kind of flotation aid (no neoprene panels) and again, must not extend below the knee. Other than a wetsuit (if permitted on race day), athletes may not remove any part of the suit until the race has been completed
