The Cardiff Triathlon has won “Commercial Event of the Year” at the Welsh Triathlon awards.

Organised by North Wales events specialists Always Aim High, the Cardiff Triathlon is going from strength to strength with 2018 seeing the race awarded ITU Sprint Distance Age Group Qualifier status.

Welsh Triathlon opened their Volunteer Award Nominations for 2017 back in August. This was open to all Welsh Triathlon members and promoted via Newsletters and social media. This year there were 8 categories to vote for and 10 awards in total.

The chosen winners were selected based on a combination of the nomination form sent in and judged by a panel consisting of both internal and external parties.

Of the Cardiff Triathlon, Welsh Triathlon said: “(The Cardiff Triathlon is) a beautiful location on closed roads, with a distance for all abilities. Transition is in Roald Dahl Plass and is like a huge amphitheater and as you exit the swim and run to get your bike you feel like a gladiator entering the arena ready for battle.”

2018’s Cardiff Triathlon is shaping up to be by far the biggest yet. Joining the ITU Qualifier are the hugely popular Super Sprint, Sprint and Olympic races, plus a few more exciting additions to be announced shortly!

Entries for all distances are now open, visit for information.
