Route Description

This Duathlon is not for the faint hearted. You get the gruelling challenge of running up Moel Siabod one and a half times! No doubt this is one of the toughest Duathlons that can be undertaken. Your first run will involve ascending up the beautiful rocky paths of Moel Siabod for 2.7km before turning around and running back down again towards the lake to reach transition.

The Snowman Bike route is famous for being one of the best triathlon cycle routes in the World. It takes in most of North Wales most iconic climbs and routes and is a challenge in it's own right. Starting close to the base of Snowdon, flow down the Nant Gwynant Pass and towards Beddgelert. Here you will meet the Glaslyn river cycling alongside the whitewater rapids. Heading over to Maentwrog along the narrow, winding ascents and descents you will then start your climb to Tan y Grisiau, Blaenau Ffestiniog and on up the Crimea pass. The equally steep descent flows down through Dolwyddelan and along the Lledr Valley to Betws Y Coed. From here, you’re almost back, but there is still one last climb up to Capel Curig and the Plas Y Brenin mountain centre.

To complete this race Moel Siabod, the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range once again looms ahead. This time you must ascend the full 3.5km to reach the summit at 872m above sea level before turning round to run back down again. To get to the finish turn right and run through the forest one final time before hitting the home straight back towards the lake. The finish line framing Wales' most famous peak Snowdon awaits.
