UK Triathlon have dedicated a section of all their pool based triathlons solely for women wishing to join The Pink Wave with easy, short, achievable distances. Swim, bike & run with friends and family for Cancer Research UK.

Sign up and take part in our fun & friendly Pink Wave triathlon events. You can either enter individually or get together with friends & family to make a Relay Team! (3 in a team - one swimmer, one cyclist and one runner).

We want to encourage more women to have a go! Any age, any ability, just get together for the camaraderie and challenge, whilst raising vital funds for research into beating cancer.

Working in partnership with Cancer Research UK, to fundraise for research into all 200 types of cancer, UK Triathlon will be donating £10 from every Pink Wave entry back to Cancer Research UK

We can offer you lots of help and advice to help make your Pink Wave Triathlon the best it could possibly be for you!

For more info about triathlon see our Beginners guide and Basic Training Tips.

Choose from our 6 Pink Wave events below.

Sign up, get your sponsorship pack sent directly to you and begin fundraising to beat cancer sooner.

UK Triathlon will donate £10 from every Pink Wave entry to Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (No. 1089464) and Scotland (No. SC041666)

Jessica Edwards, Sports Team Executive from Cancer Research UK:

‘Cancer Research UK are really excited to be the official charity partner for the UK Triathlon series and even more excited about the creation of The Ladies Pink Wave. Our ambition is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured and without the support of partners like UK Triathlon and the extraordinary generosity of the people taking part in these events, our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible. THANK YOU'.

Feedback

Perfect Event for a first Triathlon - Cheshire - Couldn't imagine a better event for a triathlon newbie, despite being a slightly complicated (for a first timer) split transition. Great routes, brilliantly organised by UK triathlon, whose team was incredibly friendly, helpful and fun...I feel like I was welcomed into a family today. Definitely been bitten by the tri bug and that's in no small part due to a fabulous first experience with UK Triathlon. See you in September guys!!!! Nikki Girvan

 First triathlon and I loved it - York - This was my first triathlon and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, competitors and staff alike. Great course and lots of spectators to cheer me along. Great organisation and layout to make sure I didn't go the wrong way. Kay Grenfell

I'll be back! – Henley-on-Thames - Friendly, well-organised event. Enjoyed it this year as much as when a first-timer six years ago. I'll be back next year to knock off the 35 seconds to get me down to 1 hour! Dianne Cole
