The weekend of 20-21 May saw over 1,600 triathletes, and thousands more spectators from across the UK attend ‘one of the best races in the world’ – the seventh 2017 Pedalcover Slateman Triathlon in Llanberis, North Wales.
The race action kicked off on Saturday with the shorter distance sprint race. Sunday brought with it the full distance of the Slateman and the conclusion of the weekend long Slateman Savage. The organising team at Always Aim High Events noted that ‘A packed event village and finish line greeted the competitors at the race’s end, with a mixture of sunny weather and bustling atmosphere attracting visitors and spectators from far and wide.’
Adam Lemalle from Always Aim High said “Over 1,600 competitors took part in the 2017 Pedalcover Slateman making it one of the biggest yet, not just in terms of competitors but as an all-round experience for spectators as well.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who took time out of their schedules to come and help marshal the event, and to everyone who came along to cheer on the triathletes at the event village in Llanberis and along the cycle and run courses, the atmosphere in the town and event village has been electric all weekend. And thanks of course, to all the competitors who took part over the two days.”
Entry to the 2018 Pedalcover Slateman Triathlon opened at noon on Monday 22 May for ‘10 days only at 2017 prices’.
