Take Part

Female focussed

The Series has seen a 10% increase in the last ten years with women now representing 37% of the field. With a female only wave on offer and plenty of support for women of all levels the Series welcomes and embraces the growth of women in the sport.

Female focussed

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!

Sport has been an integral part of my life both professionally [P.E. teacher] and personally. Having competed and trained for a number of sports over the years [!] I truly believe triathlon is the one that is the most rewarding and addictive! For a plethora of reasons, namely the personal satisfaction you gain from learning and developing the techniques, fitness requirements and skills for each discipline. Also, the wonderful people you meet in all areas of the sport, be that fellow competitors, race organisers, officials, coaches and spectators. The sport is now a way of life for me and the people in make it feel like home! More specifically, the Castle Series is one that creates that feeling of home, in that the organisers are very welcoming and hospitable to all abilities and needs. They certainly certainly look after you from start to finish! Your training in the build-up to the event will enable you to strive to be the best you can be physically but also mentally, feel good factor from finishing a triathlon is immense and hugely satisfying. You deserve the bragging rights!!
