Few elite sports offer as much gender equality as triathlon, with Wellington famous for beating the majority of men, and the feel-good female figures continue in the grassroots race scene.
Over one third of our Castle Triathlon Series competitors are female and the numbers are growing each year, which in turn is leading to the huge surge of children taking up the sport.
It’s a trend that we want to support more at Castle Triathlon Series. We’ve created a host of women-only waves at each event’s Super Sprint race. Women who’d like to race with their female peers can elect to join this wave, by simply ticking the box when registering online.
I just wanted to say a big thanks to the castle triathlon team for a superb race at Castle Howard but I’m especially grateful that you recommended the women’s only wave. I had made some new friends during the briefing which helped ease the nerves and would even go as far as saying that I enjoyed it!
