The Bog Triathlon first ran in 2005, following a demand for more dirty fun around our famous Waen Rhydd Bog.
The event - the most unusual in the Triathlon calendar, starts with an 8 mile run followed by 2 lengths of the 60 yard peat bog trench and then a 12 mile mountain bike ride. The event is open to individuals and relay teams of three (one discipline each).
In order to make the events accessible to a wider audience, a "Bite Size" Triathlon has been introduced, ideal for junior competitors or those athletes who are perhaps not so dedicated to multi-discipline sports. This will comprise a 3 mile run, a 60yd bogsnorkel, and a 6 mile mountain bike ride. Again it is open to individual competitors or relay teams of three, and is perfect for sampling the delights of this event without the need to be a hardened athlete.
