Llandudno is home to a whole array of events each year and this July we will see the return of the Llandudno Sea Triathlon on July 5th 2015. Spectators will gather along the North Shore to see competitor’s participant in one of the biggest sporting challenges in the area.
Entry for the event is open until 25th June 2015 with tickets costing £65 per individual and £77 for Teams. There are prizes up for grabs at the end of the challenging event, which are split into categories: Overall Winners ( Male & Female), Male & Female Age Groups, Relay Team, Club Prize (First 3 Athletes from the same club), Novice Prize (2015 is the first year this winner has taken part in the triathlon).
The first wave for the event will commence at 12pm on the day, with the swimming segment totalling a distance of 1500m or 750km for the sprint. Competitors will then go on to do the cycling at a distance of 36km or 19km for the sprint, which will take place around the Great Orme.
The last leg of the triathlon will be the run, which will take place along the Victorian Promenade and then over the Little Orme to Penrhyn Bay. You will then head back over the Little Orme, along the promenade and then across the finish line.
Fear not if you’re not able to participate in July’s triathlon, as the Eirias Standard Distance will take place on 26th September 2015. This will be based at the brand new Porth Eirias complex. Triathletes will start from the new permanent beach at Porth Eirias and enter the sea for a 1500m swim. Once complete, they will run up to the transition area based on the Porth Eirias car park and embark on a 53km cycle route, which will be one lap around the beautiful countryside, south of Colwyn Bay.
This will end with a run along the coastal path which is fast and flat, with beautiful views of the North Welsh coast, before heading to the finish line on the promenade next to Porth Eirias. Entries for this triathlon will close on 16th September 2015, so be sure to get entering soon as there is a maximum of 500 competitors.
