Adventure Championships 2022 Triathlon Sandman Sprint

The final part of the Adventure Championships and a fitting close - the Sandman has been described as the most beautiful triathlon in the race calendar.

The race starts and ends in one of Anglesey’s most treasured spots, the incredible Newborough Forest, an exclusive area of 700ha woods adjacent to the world famous Llanddwyn Beach.

One of the few Triathlons in the calendar with a beach start and sea swim, your supporters can build sandcastles and eat ice cream whilst you race!

The Sandman is the final part of the Adventure Championships. Enter the Championship and this event is 50% cheaper than if you enter it as a stand alone race.

Route Description

With a beach start and sea swim, lining up on the glorious Newborough beach is an unforgettable feeling. The route is a simple out and back but only the ocean will decide whether your pitted against calm waters or white tipped waves!

Don’t believe the rumours that this Island is flat! There are plenty of climbs and descents on the bike route to keep you on your toes. Starting from transition in the heart of Newborough Forest you climb up to the village of Newborough and take a right. Heading along sweeping bends and fast straights you then will take a left towards Llangaffo where the roads get noticeably narrower and deserving of some respect. Flowing down through the marshlands towards Malltraeth you will then turn left again back onto the main road in the direction of Newborough. Descend down the forest road once more and into transition ready to get your running shoes on.

The run takes place on the rugged trails of Newborough Forest. Running through the trees and down along the sand dunes is both wonderful and gruelling. The last 1.5km is almost entirely on sand but it only makes the accomplishment all the more rewarding.
