3k Beach Race:9:30am
This is the first event of the Abersoch Triple Crown, which also includes the Abersoch Sprint Triathlon and Half Marathon.
The race kicks-off from the centre of the village, with a view over towards the Harbour. From here, racers will speed through the high street and up to Lon Pentre Bach to the Deucoch.
After the Sarn Bach crossroads, there are a number of narrow lanes that head down to the far end of the beach before tackling the challenging 'Tocyn Brutal' hill. Two more miles of undulating roads will find you looping back to the golf course before the epic beach finish in-front of a beckoning crowd.
**The 3K beach run kicks-off at 0930 and has a fantastic course mixed with hard and soft sand, trails and tracks.
