sprint

ROUTE
Begin with a swim in the freshwaters of Llyn Mymbyr under the watchful eye of Snowdon. Exit the water and cross the wooden footbridge for the first time into transition.

The Sprint bike section flows out to Capel Curig before turning towards Llyn Ogwen and Bethesda, a town that grew around the slate quarry industry. After negotiating some quick winding bends down towards Bethesda you’ll turn left and start making your way back up the valley on the road known locally as the Roman road, a road which runs along the steep-sided glacial Nant Ffrancon valley. You’ll tackle a steep climb at the end before re-joining the main road at Llyn Ogwen. From here it’s a nice gentle open road all the way back to Plas y Brenin. This is an exceptionally stunning route, dwarfed in its entirety by two of Snowdonia’s mountain ranges; the Carneddau and the Glyderau.

Running shoes on, head back over the bridge. There is a reason that the Snowman Triathlon regularly gets called the toughest multi-terrain triathlon in the UK because the run includes a mountain, Moel Siabod which at 872 metres, is the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range. Sprint athletes don't need to reach the summit but it's still a tough 2.3km climb up beautiful rocky paths before you reach the turning point and run back down again. To finish, you must turn right and run through the forest, then back along the fire road towards the lake. The finish line framing Wales' most famous peak Snowdon awaits

STANDARD

ROUTE
Begin with a swim in the freshwaters of Llynnau Mymbyr under the watchful eye of Snowdon. Exit the water and cross the wooden footbridge for the first time into transition.

The Snowman Bike route is famous for being one of the best triathlon cycle routes in the World. It takes in most of North Wales' most iconic climbs and routes and is a challenge in its own right. Starting close to the base of Snowdon, flow down the Nant Gwynant Pass and towards Beddgelert. Here you will meet the Glaslyn river cycling alongside the whitewater rapids. Heading over to Maentwrog along the narrow, winding ascents and descents you will then start your climb to Tan y Grisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog and on up the Crimea pass. The equally steep descent flows down through Dolwyddelan and along the Lledr Valley to Betws Y Coed. From here, you’re almost back, but you must make the climb up to Capel Curig and the Plas Y Brenin mountain centre before you reach transition.

There is a reason that the Snowman Triathlon regularly gets called the toughest multi-terrain triathlon in the UK. That’s because to complete this race you must first summit a mountain; Moel Siabod, the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range. Ascend up 3.5km of beautiful rocky paths before reaching the summit at 872m above sea level and turning round to run back down again. To finish, you must turn right and run through the forest, then back along the fire road towards the lake. The finish line framing Wales' most famous peak, Yr Wyydfa/Snowdon awaits

LEGEND

ROUTE
Begin with a swim in the freshwaters of Llynnau Mymbyr under the watchful eye of Snowdon. Exit the water and cross the wooden footbridge for the first time into transition.

The Snowman Legend bike route is famous for being one of the best triathlon cycle routes in the World. It takes in most of North Wales' most iconic climbs and routes and is a challenge in its own right. Starting close to the base of Snowdon, flow down the Nant Gwynant Pass and towards Beddgelert. Here you will meet the Glaslyn river whilst you cycle alongside the whitewater rapids. Heading over to Maentwrog along the narrow, winding ascents and descents, you will then start your climb to Tan y Grisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog and on up the Crimea pass. The equally steep descent flows down through Dolwyddelan and along the Lledr Valley to Betws Y Coed. Past Betws y Coed and onto Capel Curig. Here you pass just a hairsbreadth from the finish point, but you must first head towards Llyn Ogwen and Bethesda, a town that grew around the slate quarry industry. After negotiating some quick winding bends down towards Bethesda you’ll turn left and start making your way back up the valley on the road known locally as the Roman road, a road which runs along the steep-sided glacial Nant Ffrancon valley. You’ll tackle a steep climb at the end before re-joining the main road at Llyn Ogwen once more. From here it’s a nice gentle open road all the way back to Plas y Brenin and transition. This is an exceptionally stunning route, dwarfed in its entirety by two of Snowdonia’s mountain ranges; the Carneddau and the Glyderau.

There is a reason that the Snowman Triathlon regularly gets called the toughest multi-terrain triathlon in the UK. That’s because to complete this race you must first summit a mountain - but not before you have run 12km out and back down the stunning Nant Ffrancon Valley with the formidable rocky ridge of Tryfan looking down on you. Don't let this relatively flat section lull you into a false sense of security, Moel Siabod, the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range is waiting for you. Legend athletes must ascend up beautiful, but gruelling rocky paths for 3.5km before reaching the summit at 872m above sea level. Here you will turn around and run back down again. To finish, you must turn right and run through the forest, then back along the fire road towards the lake. The finish line framing Wales' most famous peak, Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon awaits.

duathlon

Short and sharp, your first run starts just across the wooden bridge and follows the forest track along to a sharp hairpin where you start to climb up the flanks of Moel Siabod. This time it’s not too far until you descend down the rocky path to transition and out onto your bike.

The Sprint bike section flows out to Capel Curig before turning towards Llyn Ogwen and Bethesda, a town that grew around the slate quarry industry. After negotiating some quick winding bends down towards Bethesda you’ll turn left and start making your way back up the valley on the road known locally as the Roman road, a road that runs along the steep-sided glacial Nant Ffrancon valley. You’ll tackle a steep climb at the end before re-joining the main road at Llyn Ogwen. From here it’s a nice gentle open road all the way back to Plas y Brenin.

standard duathlon

This Duathlon is not for the faint-hearted. You get the gruelling challenge of running up Moel Siabod one and a half times! No doubt this is one of the toughest Duathlons that can be undertaken. Your first run will involve ascending up the beautiful rocky paths of Moel Siabod for 2.7km before turning around and running back down again towards the lake to reach transition.

The Snowman Bike route is famous for being one of the best cycle routes in the World. It takes in most of North Wales's iconic climbs and routes and is a challenge in its own right. Starting close to the base of Snowdon, flow down the Nant Gwynant Pass and towards Beddgelert. Here you will meet the Glaslyn river cycling alongside the whitewater rapids. Heading over to Maentwrog along the narrow, winding ascents and descents you will then start your climb to Tan y Grisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog and on up the Crimea pass. The equally steep descent flows down through Dolwyddelan and along the Lledr Valley to Betws Y Coed. From here, you’re almost back, but there is still one last climb up to Capel Curig and the Plas Y Brenin mountain centre.

To complete this race Moel Siabod, the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range once again looms ahead. This time you must ascend the full 3.5km to reach the summit at 872m above sea level before turning round to run back down again. To get to the finish turn right and run through the forest one final time before hitting the home straight back towards the lake. The finish line framing Wales' most famous peak, Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon awaits.

In line with British Triathlon Federation rules you must be at least 17 years old to take part in this race.
