Sandman Triathlon & Duathlon routes

The Sandman Triathlon

This is one of the few triathlons in the calendar with a beach start and a sea swim.

From there athletes will be treated to the unspoilt scenery of Anglesey as they cycle through the rolling hills.

The triathlon will then finish with a trail run through the remarkable pine forests and then over the dunes for the beach finish.

For the Sandman Savage, runners will compete in both the Sprint and Standard triathlon events.

The Sandman Duathlon

Competitors will start with a trail run through Newborough Forest before beginning the cycle along undulating roads taking in views of the scenic coastline. The final run will see competitors heading back into the forest amongst the pine trees before bursting on to the sand for a beach finish.
