Snowman Triathlon 2021

The Snowman is well known as the toughest multi terrain triathlon in the UK. The second instalment of the Adventure Championships, the Snowman Triathlon is ultimate challenge and not for the faint hearted.

New for 2021 and going forward into 2022 we have introduced a Super Sprint distance, consisting of a 400M Swim, 12.8km bike & 2.5K Run. As well as allowing those who haven’t quite had that training regime to still take part in a Triathlon this year, it also offers an option to those who want to take that leap into the Triathlon world!

The Snowman encompasses all that is the adventure playground of North Wales offers and is infamous for a reason - just when you think you’re done there is a different challenge you’re not expecting. Exciting, adrenaline fuelled and a truly epic and unforgettable experience completing The Snowman is a tick that every triathlete wants.

Thanks for a wonderful race. Maddest triathlon I have ever done but the most spectacular, rewarding and beautiful. Awesome marshals and organisation. Thanks again.
