Odlo Snowman Triathlon

Plas y Brenin, Conwy

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the Snowman, the UK’s ultimate triathlon challenge! This epic race holds a special place in the hearts of everyone who has experienced it. Featuring a breathtaking swim in Llyn Mymbyr at Plas y Brenin, competitors then take on one of the most amazing cycle routes in Europe, straight through the heart of Snowdonia National Park, followed by one of the toughest 'runs' the UK has to offer (Sprint runners will follow a much flatter, but equally stunning course).

The race offers something for everyone, from the incredible Legend 71.6 half iron race, the mighty two-day Snowman Savage, the stunning Classic Snowman and the breathtaking Sprint distance. Not ready for a triathlon? The Snowman weekend even features a sprint duathlon, children's aquathlon and open water swim race!

Sprint Triathlon is on Saturday, Legend and Classic Triathlons are on Sunday.

Cut Off Times

Runners in the Full and Legend will have a T2 Cut Off of 12.35 and not be permitted onto Moel Siabod after 14.30. The finish will close at 16.30.

Due to the extreme nature and mountainous environment part of the run uses, we will make discretionary calls on the day for the safety of our mountain marshals. If the weather is going to make it too dangerous for people to be on the mountain both as athletes and marshals then we reserve the right to impose an earlier cut off or modify the run course.

Registration will be at Plas y Brenin (LL24 0ET) on Friday and Saturday evening and Saturday and Sunday mornings. Timings will be confirmed in race fnal instructions.
