Adventure Series 2024 Triathlon Sandman Standard

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 700ha area of woodland adjacent to the world-famous Llanddwyn Beach.

One of the few Triathlons on 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 Series. Enter the Series 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 you're 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 this bike route to keep you on your toes. Starting from Transition in the heart of Newborough Forest, climb up to the village of Newborough and take a right. Head round the sweeping bends and fast straights whilst also negotiating the tight village streets before turning left before the famous village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch and onto the A5. This historic road takes you flying past traditional villages and green field before turning left towards the coast with stunning views of the coast on the return leg. Riding through Malltraeth and back towards Newborough, you will descend down the forest road once more to transition ready to get your running shoes on.

With Newborough Forest once hosting the Commonwealth Mountain and Ultra Distance Running Championships it's safe to say the trails on this section are world-class. Running through trees and catching glimpses of the sea and marshland within this forest is just magical if you’re not distracted by how much your legs are now starting to hurt! We don’t make it easy either, the last 1.5km is almost entirely on sand - it makes the accomplishment of becoming a Sandman all the more rewarding!
