ENDURANCE athletes will be swimming, cycling and running to the West Shore this weekend for the Llandudno Sea Triathlon.
The award winning event, which is now in its third year, will a field of around 500 of Britain’s toughest athletes tackle three testing disciplines. Athletes will start with a 1500m swim, followed by a 36k cycle race, taking in four laps of the Great Orme, rounded off with a 10k run.
Race Director Simon Hill hoped for improved weather conditions compared to last year’s event, which forced the swimming stage to be cancelled.
He said: “We’re hopeful of some better weather this year! We’ve moved the swim closer to the pier, so hopefully the water will be a bit calmer.”
A temporary traffic regulation will see sections of Abbey Road closed from 10am until 3.30pm, with parking restrictions also in place on Colwyn Road, for the cycle section of the race, which won 220Triathlon magazine’s 500 entrants or less Race of the Year in its debut season.
