The Snowdonia Slateman Triathlon 2016 is once again on course to sell out well in advance of the event, with anyone interested in the race encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.
The action packed weekend, which takes place in and around Llanberis, consists of the shorter Slateman Sprint on Saturday – a 400m lake swim, a 20km road cycle and then a 6km trail run (the Slateman Sprint road cycle takes place on a closed road). This is then followed on Sunday by the Slateman Full event – a 1,000m swim, a 51km road cycle and a 6km trail run.
Taking place on May 21 and 22, 2016, the triathlon has only 150 spaces left for the Slateman Full; 200 spaces for the Slateman Sprint and only 50 spaces for the Slateman Savage. Event organisers ‘Always Aim High Events’ expect these few remaining places to be snapped up by April.
Returning for 2016 is the infamous Slateman Savage. This event, which runs over the two days, is not for the feint hearted and combines the distances of the Sprint and Full events to create a mind blowing test of endurance.
Even if you’re not taking part, the event offers a special atmosphere with the event village hosting live music, family activities and a great selection of local products – there really is something for everyone!
The triathlon is the first in the 2016 ‘Adventure Triathlon Series’ which also includes the Sandman Triathlon and the Snowdonia Triathlon. Racing all three will get you a free hoody worth £30!
Featuring a swim surrounded by some of North Wales’ highest mountains, a bike course in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and run through an awesome slate quarry – you’ll struggle to find a more breathtaking race than the Slateman Triathlon!
