Wave & Racking Options

There are a few different options to choose from depending on whether you’d like to register on the day or the day before, and how competitive you are.


Macmillan Beginner’s Wave – Sprint Distance wave designed for newcomers to triathlon. You will receive extra support, tips and guidance throughout your training by Macmillan. Whilst fundraising isn’t compulsory with this entry option, it is strongly encouraged. By selecting this option, you are consenting to receive information from Macmillan.

BTF Age Category Wave  – BTF Age Category waves split participants into waves according to gender and age. We follow the standard BTF age categories (20-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc) whereby your wave is calculated by your age at the end of the year. Depending on demand, we may group together categories.

Mates Wave – Mates Waves are non-competitive, mixed gender and age waves which allow participants to race with their friends and family.


Mixed Wave – Take the hassle out of registering the day before and upgrade your entry to rack your bike and register on the event day. Sunday racking has limited space so book early to guarantee your spot. Your race pack will be posted out to you for this wave, so please remember to bring it with you on the day.
