A very warm welcome from Wrecsam Triathlon Club. Chirk is one of the most popular triathlons in the country. Wrecsam Triathlon Club is grateful to North Wales Police, Wrexham HighwaysDepartment and Freedom Leisure for their continuing support for this race. Without this support, the race could not continue to be run.
Over the years the club has made charitable donations in excess of £45,000 including local donations to schools and organisations in Chirk in recognition of the support and help they receive from the local community.
Swim: The swim is 16 lengths and you must swim in a circular direction indicated to you by the lane marshal as there will be other swimmers in the lane. Your lengths will be counted and a "2 laps to go" board will be inserted as you approach 350m. The colour of the board will match your swim hat.
Bike: Please obey marshals at all times, they are there for your safety. Where there are coned sections for bikes please keep your speed below 10mph and refrain from overtaking. There are two right turns that will be marshalled by experienced traffic management crews. Please ensure that you follow the rules of the road at all times to avoid disqualification.
Run: The run exits transition in the opposite direction to the bike exit. Turn right out of the Leisure Centre and proceed to the T junction. Turn left and proceed up the steady hill. Turn right over the bypass and descend the steep hill. Continue for several hundred metres before forking left. Narrow lanes take you to the turnaround point. Return along the course and the finish is at the Leisure Centre. See new map on website. Water station will be at the half way stage at the turnaround point.
