A swim surrounded with mountains, a bike course in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and a run through an awesome slate quarry - we challenge you to find a more iconic race than the Pedalcover Slateman Triathlon.

The race offers a unique mix of incredible scenery and challenge with a carnival atmosphere that makes all feel welcome.

Once again the Slateman will be delivered over two days, with the three tri options of the Slateman Sprint, Full and Savage available. Team relay categories are also available for both the Sprint and Full race distances.
