Here you will find a little more information abot the races and about the weekend we have planned by teaming up with Always aim high to give our advice, knowledge and tips to help you feel more confident about the races.
Snowdonia Triathlon Festival
Formerly known as the Snowman it is set in the Snowdonia national park making all the race routes breath taking and stunning. The swims take place in Llyn Mymbyr at the shores of Plas Y Brenin National Mountain Centre - home to quite possibly the most beautiful view in the world . All four cycle routes take in the best roads, climbs and of course views that Snowdonia National Park has to offer, while the run routes are the envy of any triathlon in the country. You can compete in any of the Snowdonia Triathlon Festival races as an individual or as a relay team of up to three. This is the second in the always aim high adventure tri series.
The Slateman Triathlon
The swim is surrounded by mountains, the bike course is in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and the run is through an amazing slate quarry - you won't find a more iconic race than the Slateman Triathlon.
The race offers a unique mix of incredible scenery and challenge with a carnival atmosphere that makes all feel welcome.
The Slateman Slatefest is delivered over two days, with the two tri options of the Slateman Sprint on Saturday and the Slateman Full on Sunday. Team relay categories are also available for both race distances.
