UK Triathlon and Cancer Research UK are proud to announce the launch of the CRUK Wave 2024. 

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)

It was the first triathlon I had ever done and based on todays experience certainly will not be the last! I had such an amazing day and the event was just about as professional as any sporting event I can say I've ever been to. The Stewards were simply brilliant, providing all the right information for a beginner like me but also providing lots of support all way around the course- which was very much appreciated. On top of that I was very surprised (in a good way) at just how much good will and support all the other competitors provided.To be honest I couldn't speak more highly of the day and I just wanted to let you and your colleagues know that it was very much appreciated. I hope you enjoyed it as much as i did! Kindest regards Ian walker (163)


Thank you from a triathlon newbie. Brilliantly organized and THANKYOU to all the marshalls. p.s any tips on getting the tattoo sticky off your arms. - even tried some vodka this morning!! Zoe Elliott (TOP TIP: cotton wool with baby oil is great for sticky remnants)!!


A massive thank you to Keith, Zoe and all the team from myself and Samantha Tyacke for making her first Triathlon an amazing experience. So friendly encouraging and helpful one and all. You even made mum and dad feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much Andy Smith
