CRUK Wave @CheshireTriathlon

CRUK text Cheshire.jpg

UK Triathlon and Cancer Research UK are proud to announce the launch of the CRUK Wave 2022. The CRUK Wave is aimed at encouraging more participants, of any age, gender or ability, to unite and take on a challenge for the purpose of funding life-saving research into all 200 types of cancer.

This change comes after the success of the UK Triathlon Pink Wave, it reflects the movement towards a more inclusive environment for all participants who want to complete a triathlon at their own speed, whilst raising money for life-saving research.  

We want to encourage everyone 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.

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


Course Maps

The event starts with the swim in the only heated outdoor brine swimming pool in Great Britain, followed by a one lap 13.4 mile cycle around the South Cheshire countryside until returning to the Barony Park in Nantwich for the final run, in and around the park itself. So why not enter now and take part in one of the largest participant triathlons in the country.

Firstly can a say a massive thank you to all your teamand volunteers who where at the Cheshire triathlon in Nantwich yesterday

I had never been so frightened of anything than taking onthis huge personal achievement, last April I had Breast care surgery for veryearly stage Breast cancer Now I was one of the lucky ones and got away almostscott free But for a Middle Ages overweight smoker it was time to change mylife around So in February this year I started with some walking to try andloose weight and get a little bit fitter

So as you can see to complete the pink wave is something I'm extremely proud of.

Your staff where absolutely amazing from the lady who aspoke when I registered just 3 weeks ago who convinced me I could do this for(I think her name was Jackie but I'm not sure ) For everyone shoutingencouragement to me on my ride To the lady at the finish line who I fell intoher arms crying (sorry but theachievement and the emotion of the day just got to me

) When she put that medal around my neck my friend and family where all crying with me she arranged photos and loads off them (Pleasecan you advise how I get hold of these )

Truly your staff are inspirational

Thank you again and see you next year
