Rhyl Triathlon latest addition to Xtra Mile Events calendar

The organiser of the Llandudno Sea Triathlon and The Eirias (pictured), Xtra Mile Events, is introducing the latest addition to their calendar for 2013 – the open-water Ryhl Triathlon.

The Rhyl Triathlon takes place on Sunday 9 June 2013 and incorporates both a sprint and a standard distance race, giving athletes of all levels the opportunity to enter and to take part. Rhyl Marine Lake offers top class facilities, a clean, sheltered environment for the swim as well as family entertainment.

The scenic cycle route takes in the Denbighshire countryside outside Rhyl and the run route goes out and back along the Promenade, finishing at the lake. A racked transition will be used and results will be via electronic chip timing.

The sprint distance race includes a 750m swim, 22km bike ride and 5km run. Distances for the standard race are 1500m for the swim, 44km for the cycle and 10km for the run. There is currently a special discounted entry fee of £47.50 available for the first 200 entrants, once those are sold the entry fee will be £62. Teams of three can also enter the team relay at a cost of £58 for the first 200 and £75 afterwards.

The first wave of competitors will be entering the water at 8.00 am, and a total of 500 places are available for the inaugural Rhyl Triathlon. Go to www.xtramileevents.com to secure your place now.
