Course Information.


The Swim will be in the sea of Aberystwyth’s North Beach. It will be in a clockwise direction starting between the jetty and the pier. There will be 2 buoys out in¬†the bay. Turn right at each buoy to make your way back to the swim exit. The swim has traditionally been a mass start, and will be again this year. However, if there are a large number of competitors, for safety, we may set competitors off in waves, 10 minutes apart.


The Bike route will take you along Marine Terrace. After 400 metres you will turn right. Continue across the crossroads and up onto North Road for 1k to a left turn onto Penglais Hill. Go up Penglais Hill and down to Bow Street, and the turn around point is by the school in Talybont. Return back the same way you came (take care through these villages as they do have some narrow places which will be marshalled). There is a varying speed limit down Penglais Hill please stick to it as there will be traffic turning across you. At the bottom of the hill again listen to the marshals as you have a right turn up on to North Road.


The run take you out of transition and turns right along to the end of the prom you will be directed up towards the golf course to a turn around point. Return back along the prom to the bandstand and continue on to the harbour to a second turnaround point and back to the bandstand to the finish.
