Based at the brand new Porth Eirias watersports complex, the 'The Eirias' middle distance triathlon is a great new event in the triathlon calendar. Following on from the success of the Llandudno Sea Triathlon, Xtra Mile Events have again teamed up with Conwy County Council to bring you a sea based middle distance triathlon to rival the best in the UK.
Triathletes will start from the new permanent beach at Porth Eirias and enter the sea for a 1900m, 2 lap swim. Exiting via the beach you will run up to the transition area based on the Porth Eirias car park and embark on a 83km 2 lap cycle route around the beautiful countryside south of Colwyn Bay.
The run will be along the coastal path which is fast and flat (with a couple of little rises) affording beautiful views of the North Welsh coast. There is a new finish line on the promenade next to Porth Eirias.
Start time: 8am
The race registration will be on Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday 3rd August between 5.00am and 6.30am. No registrations will be accepted after this time. Absolutely no late entries will be accepted as this will delay the start.
Registering Relay Teams
Only one team member needs to turn up, but they must have photographic ID for all members.
Yes, they are compulsory
Neoprene gloves and booties for the swim
These are not ‘legal’ equipment for a triathlon. However, if you wish to wear them you can but you will be disqualified (you can still continue the race and you will get a time).
