Macmillan Cancer Support

By 2020, almost one in two people will get cancer and it’s the toughest fight most of us will ever face. Macmillan want to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer because life with cancer is still life – let’s help people live it.

Fancy a free place?

There are two ways to get yourself a charity place in a Castle Triathlon Series event:

Macmillan Charity Place

Macmillan are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of charity places in Castle Triathlon Series’ 2021 season. You can take up one of these places by selecting one of the ‘Free Macmillan Charity Entries’ on the registration form, for Castle Triathlon, Run or Swim events.

By signing up for charity places you are committing to raise:

  • £500 for Gauntlet and Bastion distances
  • £350 for distances up to and including Olympic Triathlon
  • £200 for Castle Swim Series
  • £200 for Castle Run Series: Marathon and Half Marathon
  • £100 for Castle Virtual Series

Use the green button to book your place!

Your Own Place

You can choose to support Macmillan with your own place by ticking ‘FUNDRAISE FOR OUR NATIONAL CHARITY PARTNER MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT’ on the event entry form when you are purchasing your own triathlon entry.
