Mates Waves with on-the-day racking coming to Windsor Triathlon

24th February 2016

New waves just launched at the Windsor Triathlon will allow a limited number of triathletes to avoid Saturday registration and rack on-the-day for the first time. The Mates Waves will give friends, family members and rivals the chance to race alongside each other regardless of age and gender, whilst also offering the option of racking on Saturday or Sunday. Capacity in these new waves will be extremely limited, so those interested are advised to register immediately.

Since its debut in 1991 tens of thousands of participants have competed in the Windsor Triathlon, and it returns for a 26th edition on Sunday 12 June. In recent years organisers Human Race have introduced Mates Waves to their triathlons at Dorney Lake, with them quickly becoming a firm favourite, and continuing to increase in popularity each year. The four special Mates Waves at Windsor will allow triathletes taking on the Sprint or Olympic distance the opportunity to rack on the morning before they race.

Nick Rusling, CEO of organisers Human Race Events, said “Windsor is quite rightly considered one of the greatest triathlons in the UK, and it’s important that we continue to make enhancements so participants have an unforgettable experience. Our new Mates Waves with on-the-day racking is just one of the improvements we are making this year, and if successful, we will look to make available to more people in 2017”.

Windsor is one of the most popular triathlons in the UK, with thousands of participants already signed up with only limited places remaining. Several distances will be on offer in the historic and beautiful surroundings of Windsor Castle, including the popular Sprint (750m swim, 30k bike, 5k run) and Olympic distances (1,5k swim, 42k bike, 10k run).

The characteristic triathlon and firm favourite became the first event to win the BTF triathlon of the year award a massive seven times, and continues to attract visitors from all over the UK and the world to take part.

Limited places in the Windsor Triathlon Mates Waves with on-the-day racking are now available. To secure your place visit the Windsor Triathlon webpage.
