Organizer's website

The increasingly popular Henley-on-Thames Triathlon is in its ninth year and takes place at Henley Leisure Centre and Gillotts School.

The town is perhaps best known for the annual Royal Regatta, which attracts some of the world's finest rowers. Conveniently situated just outside the picturesque town of Henley on the edge of the Chiltern Hills and the banks of the River Thame.

We want to encourage more women 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. The event is aimed at all abilities, at all levels of fitness, from complete novice to club and pro triathlete, as well as charity and fun competitors.

UK Triathlon has dedicated a section of the event solely to The Pink Wave and is working in partnership with Cancer Research UK to raise money for research into all 200 types of cancer. Open to all women who want to take part. All abilities welcome. High 5's, cheers, and a lot of pink guaranteed!

Places are sure to fill up quickly, so secure your place and enter now.

    As this event has two transitions, make sure to take a gel with you on the bike if you usually take one on the run - there won't be a place you can leave it in second transition if you don't have separate running shoes and bike shoes.Be prepared for things to get a little dicey in the pool - it's tiny and you will get held up as it's hard to overtake in such narrow lanes. Use those moments to catch your breath!
