NEW for 2017! Middle distance option. We are now offering a new middle distance race which will consist of a 1900m sea swim, an 87km cycle starting with 1 lap of the Great Orme and continuing around the Conwy hills before finishing with a 20km run along the coast. This will be a truly great middle distance event.
Once again, we are working with British Triathlon and the sprint distance event will be an ITU Sprint Distance World Championship qualifier and will be DRAFT LEGAL - draft legal guidelines can be found here.
Each of the middle, standard and sprint triathlons incorporate the thrill of a sea swim, and a challenging cycle section on closed roads around the Great Orme with its glorious vista over the North Wales Coast (the rest of the middle distance cycle leg will be on open roads). The run route goes out along the Victorian Promenade and then over the Little Orme to Penrhyn Bay. Turn around, then run back over the Little Orme and along the promenade with a sea breeze to cool you to the finish! All finishers receive a fantastic medal and free photo to download.
The 2010 Llandudno Sea Triathlon was voted 220Triathlon magazine Race of the Year (entries<500).

Neoprene gloves and booties for the swim These are not ‘legal’ equipment for a triathlon. You can wear them if you wish, but you will be disqualified (you can still continue the race and you will get a time).
