Waves and Racking

Entertain yourself after racking on the Saturday

The Royal Windsor Triathlon will return on Sunday 12th June 2022.

At this event, participants are invited to rack their bike on the Saturday 11th June, the day before the race.

This is compulsory because of time constraints on the day of the event. A small number of participants may have purchased on the day racking with their entry meaning they will be able to rack their bike on the Sunday. If you are signed up into the event, you should log into your profile or check your confirmation email before arriving at the event to ensure you arrive on the correct day.

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 categories together.

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.

The calm before the storm

The Saturday before the event is a great opportunity to check out the route, chat to fellow competitors and explore the event village. There will be plenty going on, with most participants travelling to Windsor for the Saturday.
