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.
The King of the Mountains special stage will be repeated again this year with the aim of finding the best climber in each race: the KoM climb will be included at the beginning of each lap, details here.
Registration to The Eirias Triathlon is open now with individual entry fees of £90 for the middle distance and £65 for the standard distance race. Team relay entries are available for £125 or £75 respectively.
Entries close on 16th September 2015 or when sold out – register here.
