It’s beautiful, atmospheric and up there as one of our favourite races. But now the Slateman Triathlon has got even tougher for next year with the edition of a middle-distance option on 19 May 2019. And entries are now open for the new 70.1 Legend Distance here.


The new Legend distance consists of a 1.9km swim in the chilly waters of Llyn Padarn, a 90km bike route through the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and the unique 21km run on Llanberis’ slate quarry trails and Padarn Country Park.

The 2019 edition of the Slateman is expected to draw over 1,500 triathletes to Snowdonia in May, with over 5,000 spectators likely to descend on the event village and surrounding routes.
