About Rude Health Bog Triathlon at Green Events - Llanwrtyd Wells
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 a single length of the 60 yard peat bog trench and then a 12 mile mountain bike ride.
In order to make the events accessible to a wider audience, we have introduced a "Bite Size" Triathlon, 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 60 yard bogsnorkel, and a 6 mile mountain bike ride. 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.
