This triathlon is an Always Aim High Community Event, with profits going towards supporting local projects, charities and community groups.
On Saturday, March 25, Harlech also hosts the World's Steepest Street Run from the bottom of Harlech Castle steps, starting with a gradient of no more than 37%.
The triathlon begins at 8am the following day and comprises a 400-metre swim in Harlech swimming pool, followed by a beautiful 21.5km cycle and an impressive 5.5km run, with a final stretch along the beach to the famous ‘Storm the Castle” finish.
Ed Glover, Salop Leisure’s marketing manager, said: “We are delighted to support the Harlech Sprint Triathlon, an event which brings thousands of people to the town and grows every year.
“Having three holiday parks in the area, it Is vital that we support local events like this which help put Harlech on the map.”
Harlech Triathlon chairman Dave Sullivan said: “Our triathlon is very well supported and tends to sell out weeks before the event. Many of the triathletes tell me it’s their favourite because of the scenic location, the beach run, finish inside the castle and the organisation.
“We are very grateful for the continued sponsorship and support from Salop Leisure who have always been great supporters of our Harlech community. Hopefully, the triathlon will help to promote the company’s holiday parks and their 5 star luxurious rental holiday cottages promoted via Dioni website.”
Any businesses interested in sponsoring the triathlon are asked to contact Mr Sullivan by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 07730822280.
