Preview: SportPursuit Slateman Triathlon 2019

*UPDATE* Read the full race report from the 2019 SportPursuit Slateman Triathlon here.

Triathlons come in all shapes and sizes. It’s part of the fun as a first-time triathlete or a seasoned pro that the exciting trio of swim, run, bike can take you to some amazing new places and remarkable courses. Reviewed by 247 magazine as “three of the UK’s most well loved and iconic triathlons”, the Suunto Adventure Tri Series is a perfect example of this idea: well-organised events that challenge your physical abilities in some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK.

We are so proud to be working with Always Aim High Events across their series of events in 2019, and especially excited for the SportPursuit Slateman Triathlon, an epic race that kicks off the Adventure Tri series on 18th May 2019. Always Aim High Events sum the event up best:

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.

Distances start with a speedier Sprint length that is perfect for people new to triathlon who want to experience the thrill of an organised event in stunning surroundings. SportPursuit employee Will, fresh from his first triathlon at Ironman New Zealand, is taking on the longer challenge of the Legend distance. He’s been training hard, and let us know he’s “excited to see what challenges the Welsh mountains can throw at me!”
