Make 2018 your year

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

EN­TRIES for the 2018 Sandman Triathlon are now open.

The triathlon, which is or­gan­ised by North Wales events spe­cial­ists Al­ways Aim High, will take place on Satur­day and Sun­day Septem­ber 22/23 and will bring with it ev­ery­thing that’s come to be ex­pected of this spec­tac­u­lar sea­son closer.

As ever, the Sandman week­end will be made up of Sprint, Clas­sic, week­end-long Sav­age (a com­bi­na­tion of the Sprint and Clas­sic), and the hugely well re­ceived Sandman Leg­end 72.4km mid­dle dis­tance race which was first in­tro­duced in 2017.

Join­ing the triathlon races will be the Sandman Sprint Duathlon (again in­tro­duced for the first time in 2017) and the Sandman Ju­nior Triathlon.

Com­peti­tors at the 2017 Sandman Triathlon called the race “the per­fect UK triathlon sea­son closer’”and “possibly the most beau­ti­ful coastal triathlon in the coun­try” with stun­ning views of Snow­do­nia, the Llyn Penin­sula and the stun­ning sandman shore­lines of An­gle­sey around ev­ery cor­ner, it’s not hard to see why.

Tak­ing place around a tran­si­tion area and event vil­lage in Newborough For­est, the Sandman fea­tures a swim off the blue flag beaches at Lland­dwyn fol­lowed by a stun­ning cy­cle along the coun­try roads of south­ern An­gle­sey. The race con­cludes with a trail run though Newborough for­est, be­fore ex­it­ing out onto the beach for a sprint fin­ish through the dunes.
