Event Details

Based at the Porth Eirias watersports complex, the The Eirias Standard Distance+ triathlon is a great event in the triathlon calendar. Following on from the success of the Eirias Middle Distance Triathlon, Xtra Mile Events have established a sea based standard distance+ triathlon to rival the best in the UK.

Triathletes start from the beach at Porth Eirias and enter the sea for a 1500m swim. They exit via the beach and run up to the transition area based on the Porth Eirias car park and embark on a 53km (this is the standard distance + bit) 1 lap cycle route around the beautiful countryside south of Colwyn Bay.
The run will be along the coastal path which is fast and flat (with a couple of little rises) affording beautiful views of the North Welsh coast. The finish line is on the promenade next to Porth Eirias.

Start time: 09:00

Race registration will be in Porth Eirias on Friday afternoon from 17:00 to 18:30 and Saturday 16th July between 06:00 and 07:30. No registrations will be accepted after this time. Absolutely no late entries will be accepted as this will delay the start.

Registering relay teams Only one team member needs to turn up, but they must have photographic ID for all members.

Wetsuits Compulsory.

Neoprene gloves and booties for the swim These are not ‘legal’ equipment for a triathlon.  However, if you wish to wear them you can but you will be disqualified (you can still continue the race and you will get a time).

Please note the event booklet on this page is from 2015. The event will follow a similar format in 2016.
