Bala 2024 Triathlon Bala Standard triathlon 2024
The Bala Standard Triathlon is an iconic race that has captured many hearts and minds! With flat, closed road courses in stunning scenery it's a fun, speedy and supportive race.
If you are interested in a Charity Place on the Tom Harrison House team please contact us.
The iconic Bala triathlon begins with a water start in the famous Llyn Tegid with Aran Fawddwy providing a dramatic backdrop. After an out and back swim, you will head into transition to get ready for 38km on fully closed roads. Don’t let the mountainous scenery fool you as you head out of transition on the fast and flat bike route. The bike route follows the western shore of the lake, before cutting through the lowlands of southern Snowdonia, turning, and heading back towards Bala. The run continues in a similar vein to the bike, a fast and flat 10km to finish a spectacular race. The perfect route for beginners or a great opportunity for a PB for experienced racers!
