This one is for the girls! The Shock Absorber WomenOnly Triathlon gives all the ladies the chance to try a new sport or to compete like for like and most of all for you to help raise money for a very worthy cause, Breast Cancer Care.

The event, held at the Olympic rowing venue Dorney Lake, Eton, provides a flat tarmac run and bike track as well as a lake with clean, calm waters to swim. As well as being a very safe and supportive venue for a triathlon, it also offers superb spectator viewing.

The event is designed for women of all abilities to compete in a friendly, fun and non-intimidating environment.

With triathlons of all distances that can be entered as an individual or in a team, there is sure to be a race for all, that will not only challenge you but also give you the ultimate feeling of achievement and most importantly have a fun day out.

NEW! As well as aiming to encourage as many first-timers as possible this year, we have added a traditional Sprint Distance for anyone who can cover a 750m Swim, 21.2km Bike and 5km Run in under 1 hour 25min.

This new Sprint event will be split into two waves. All competitors who can race sub 1 hour 12min will be in an Elite wave, testing themselves against the best female triathletes our country has to offer. There will also be a highly competitive wave for the 1 hour 12min to 1 hour 25min ladies  - we can't wait to see what our Human Racers are made of!

There's also a Scootathlon (scoot, bike and run) for boys and girls aged 4-8. These budding triathletes will compete at the beginning of the day, before the first WomenOnly wave.

Title sponsor, Shock Absorber are the UK’s leading sports bra brand, celebrating 15 years of providing expert sports bra support. Do you know that the average breast bounces significantly during swimming, cycling and running, meaning female triathletes are at risk from breast damage?

Wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra will provide upto 78% less breast bounce, giving you the support and sport performance you need and letting you focus on the finish line. For more information on their range of sports bras and stockists go to: www.shockabsorber.co.uk and check out their Facebook page for training tips.

We’re also here to help you along the way with our open water swim training sessions and our Shock Absorber WomenOnly Triathlon Training Day.

So what are you waiting for, get your girlfriends together and join up, start getting fit, having fun and raising money for Breast Cancer Care.
