The Cardiff Triathlon was first introduced to the ‘Always Aim High’ event calendar back in 2015. Since then, the triathlon has continued to grow from strength to strength and is now regarded as one of the most unforgettable city races in the tour.
1500 participants will compete in the Sprint, Standard and Super Sprint distance events. The Sprint distance involves a 750m open water swim in the bay, followed by a fast cycle route along completely closed roads in the Bay and city centre. The triathlon ends with a gruelling 5km run along the Cardiff Bay barrage. The Standard distance sees competitors undertake a colossal 1500m swim, a 40km cycle and a 10km run, whilst those dipping their toes into the triathlon circuit will complete Super Sprint distance of a 400m swim, a 10km cycle and a 2.5km run. There really is something for everyone!
The event village and stage transition will be held along the Roald Dahl Plass in front of the Wales Millennium Centre. Even if you don’t quite feel ready to compete in one of these spectacular triathlon events, head down to the Bay to show your support!
