Cancellation of swim section Conwy Middle Triathlon
We have just been informed at 18.30 that there had been an accidental sewage discharge into the sea of Rhos on Sea. Natural Resources Wales and the Environment Health have instructed us that swimming is not recommended until Sunday morning at the earliest.
With this now, we are not in a position to be able to hold the swim section of the event. As such we will be changing the event to a duathlon.
Middle distance will start with a 10km run and Standard distance will start with a 5kmrun.
The cycle and second run stages will be as normal.
This situation is completely out of our control - we have looked at every option to get around this but Environmental Health has advised that no swimming should be undertaken.
We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and look forward to welcoming you all at the duathlon tomorrow.
