Talking about the progress of the event, director of Always Aim High Events, Tim Lloyd said: “The Cardiff Triathlon is a brand new race and we are ecstatic with the response it has received.

“The entries have been flooding in so much so that we expect the event to be sold out well in advance of race day.”

Both races start at the iconic Cardiff Bay and will finish with a run out to Cardiff Bay Barrage while the transition zone and event village will be based in front of the Wales Millennium Centre.

The organisers have also made sure there is plenty on offer for spectators with live music, a wide range of activities and kids entertainment all taking place at the event village.
