If you like sea swims and rolling hills on the bike then this one’s for you – the Eirias Triathlon will return to north Wales on 26 September, with a top field expected once again.


Both race begin with a sea swim at Porth Eirias, with the middle distance+ race involving a 1,900m swim (two laps), 106km cycle and 20km run. The standard distance+ race takes place on the same course and includes a 1,500m swim, 53km cycle and 10km run.

Last year’s race saw Welsh Commonwealth Games athlete Carol Bridge take the overall title in the middle distance+ race, beating the male winner Christof Knoeri by over 3mins with a time of 5:23:48.
