This race offers a fantastic challenge in a stunning location & one you will relish whether you’re an elite athlete or just starting out in the Triathlon world! The atmosphere both during the race & afterwards plays a big part in the events success, selling out each year in advance.

The Black Opal ABERSOCH Triathlon takes place on Saturday 18th June in the stunning North Wales seaside town of Abersoch. There’s Olympic and Sprint distances to choose from, with exceptional courses that will both challenge and inspire you, a reason why this event is many people’s favourite.

This event starts with a sea swim, in Abersoch’s sheltered bay, the bike route is a 20km lap for the sprint distance and 2 laps of the same course for the Olympic distance, closed off in sections to the traffic. The run takes in the unique terrain of part beach, part trail and part road, with both races boasting that picture-book finish on Abersoch beach.

Great race support throughout the course, all the pro race assets you would expect from a big triathlon event, and a memorable atmosphere with music and beach bar to enhance your post race celebrations.

Entries still available but running out fast, so get booked in and come and join us for the 7th annual Abersoch Triathlon, and don’t forget your sunnies and beach towel!
