The Brutal Extreme Triathlon

LLanberis, North Wales

Organiser's Description

The Brutal Extreme Triathlons start in the beautiful (and slightly chilly) Lake Padarn. The bike course goes through stunning scenery around the foothills of Snowdon climbing up and over the renowned Pen-y-Pass as well as over some other challenging hills. And finally, the run takes you on a undulating trail round the lake and then up and down Wales' highest mountain, Snowdon.

This is 'The World's Toughest Triathlon' (as voted for by 220 Triathlon in 2017) but it is renowned for it's low-key and friendly vibe. Every athlete, whether it's your first triathlon or 21st, will feel the massive support from not only the event crew, but the other competitors too. The challenging terrain and breathtaking scenery creates an awesome experience that will stay with you long after the aches and blisters have gone!

Distances available in 2020 are half iron, full iron, double iron and Quin. (Quin starts on Thursday).
