The wait is over… The Slateman Legend has arrived! The iconic Slateman Triathlon just got even tougher. Entries are now open for the all-new 70.1 Legend Distance!

The 2019 Slateman is expected to be one of the biggest ever, with over 1500 triathletes expected to descend on this beautiful corner of Snowdonia. The stunning race village location at the foot of Snowdon will attract over 5000 spectators to cheer on the racing action.

The Slateman will kick off the Always Aim High 2019 Adventure Triathlon Series 2019, followed by the HIGH5 Snowman in July, and the Superfeet Sandman in September.

The new Legend distance consists of a 1.9km swim in the bracing waters of Llyn Padarn, an incredible 90 km cycle route through the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and a breath-taking 21km run on Llanberis’ unique Slate Quarry trails and Padarn country park. The Slateman truly is one of the most beautiful and challenging triathlon races on the calendar.

Race founder Tim Lloyd said “We are so happy to add the Legend distance to the Slateman, it is great we now offer the Legend distance across the whole Adventure Triathlon Series. Our competitors have requested the greatest challenges in the most stunning locations, and we hope that this is what all distances at the Slateman will deliver, especially the new legend distance”.

“The Slateman was our first ever event and we absolutely love it”

“We’ve got some other surprises up our sleeves for the Slateman 2019 too, so watch this space.”
