2016 Long Course –http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1109205524
Short course – 3km swim & 12km run
This year will virtual repeat this course, but following athlete feedback there will be a few changes to the final swim and run sections in and around Llyn Padarn.
For 2017 we will also be adding a short course. This will start and finish in Llanberis and include a partial ascent of Snowdon followed by the final 25% of the long course.
Following the tremendous success of Snowdonia Llyn i Llyn SwimRun UK is delighted to bring Europe’s fastest growing, and most exciting endurance sport to Wales. In particular the area around Llanberis, home of the notorious Slateman and Brutal triathlons and of course Wales highest peak, Snowdon.
Based upon Sweden’s ÖTILLÖ island to island race, athletes wearing wetsuits will run between lakes (known in Wales as Llyn) and then, whilst still wearing their trainers, swim across these cold mountain tarns on their way to the top of Wales highest mountain – Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa.
The finalised route will be published one month prior to the race, however there will be a minimum of 8 swims and 9 runs with approximately 8km of swimming and 38km of running, including almost 2000m of climbing.
Snowdonia is littered with stunning wild swimming spots. This race will be an ideal opportunity for bored ironman triathletes to visit many of them in the one day.
Male Pairs, Female Pairs & Mixed Pairs.
