Will you conquer 'the toughest physical challenge in the UK' - the Snowman Legend 71.6 this year?

This epic race holds a special place in the hearts of everyone who has experienced it and features everything that makes this Always Aim High event one of the 'must do' races of the season!

Featuring a breathtaking swim in Llyn Mymbyr at Plas y Brenin (the national mountaineering centre), the competitors then take on a truly epic cycle through the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

For competitors taking part in the Legend 71.6 and Full distance races, the Snowman offers one of the toughest 'runs' the UK has to offer - to the summit of Moel Siabod and straight back down to the finish line at Plas y Brenin! Sprint runners will race on a much flatter, but equally stunning course.

What you need to know about Duathlons

Duathlons were primarily created to allow triathletes to race during the winter months without the need to swim in cold lakes. It’s a running and cycling event that has become very popular in recent years, they’re great training races for triathlon and make an excellent step up from single running/cycling events. So, if you want to broaden your horizons and move into multi-disciplinary events, Duathlon is an excellent place to start.

Duathlons tend to follow the same distance structure as triathlons, although the format is typically ‘Run—Bike—Run’ meaning you start with a run, then transition to the bike, then transition back to running again. Duathlons come in Sprint, Standard and Long distances.

Different Duathlon event types

  • Sprint Duathlon: 5km run, 20km bike, 2.5km run
  • Standard Distance Duathlon: 10km run, 40km bike, 5km run
  • Long Distance Duathlon: 10km run, 150km bike, 30km run

These distances aren’t as standardised as Triathlons, so do check the exact course. Duathlon races can cover all terrains with opportunities to run cross country and mountain bike. We’ve curated some of our favourites below, good luck out there!
