Slateman Triathlon - Llanberis, Wales

20/21 May 2017 



A swim surrounded with mountains, a bike course in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and a run through an awesome slate quarry - we challenge you to find a more iconic race than the Slateman Triathlon.

The race offers a unique mix of incredible scenery and challenge with a carnival atmosphere that makes all feel welcome.  


Once again the Slateman Slatefest will be delivered over two days, with the three tri options of the Slateman Sprint and Mini Sprint on Saturday and the Slateman Full on Sunday. Team relay categories are also available for both race distances.

We are also very proud to announce that the Slateman Savage will return for 2016 The exciting category is for those crazy individuals who are tough enough to tackle the whole Slateman weekend by completing the Sprint AND the Full. Only these unique few can claim to be 'Slateman Savage'!  A bespoke Savage T shirt will be awarded to all finishers in recognition of their amazing achievement.

The Slateman Triathlon is the first in the 2016 Adventure Triathlon Series which also includes the Sandman Tri and Snowdonia Tri.  Race all three and win a special hoodie worth £30!  

In 2015 we welcomed over 2,000 triathletes to the Slateman Event Village, set in the beautiful mountain village of Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon, all were treated to an incredible day of racing, live music, family activities and of course a very warm welcome from the local Welsh communities.  

Sprint, Full or Savage...whatever your race, you have got to be ROCK HARD to do this event!
