Few elite sports offer as much gender equality as triathlon, with Chrissie Wellington famous for beating the majority of men, and strong and prominent female role models in the grassroots race scene.
At Castle Triathlon Series it’s our daily mission to create mulitsport festivals for all, where a triathlete of any gender, age or ability feels welcome and safe to take part. Over one third of our Castle Triathlon Series competitors are female and the numbers are growing each year, and we’re also pleased to champion gender equality in all of our events,
It’s a trend that we want to support more at Castle Triathlon Series. We’ve created a 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!
