Billed as the UK’s friendliest, toughest and most beautiful single lap iron distance triathlon, it will start and finish in Llanberis and send athletes through ‘mind-blowing scenery, flawless tarmac and a number of iconic climbs’, according to the organisers.

Those climbs will include Bwlch maesgwm, Pen-y-Pass and the infamous Dinorwig Quarries. The run stage comprises of a full-length mixed terrain marathon set in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, then brings athletes back to Llanberis to finish.

“The interest this event has already had is incredible,” said event manager Rob Samuel. “We had over 750 people pre-register for the event, and with only 500 places up for grabs I fully expect The Legend to quickly become a sell-out event. Therefore, anyone who is thinking of entering I would advise them to do it now before it’s too late!”
