Snowman Triathlon - Plas y Brenin, Capel Curig

The 2013 Snowman Triathlon was a truly epic event. This is undoubtedly one of the toughest triathlons in the whole of the UK, but is also almost definitely the most stunning!
So, if you are a triathlete and think you are tough then the Snowman is for you! The run up Moel Siabod is possibly the most incredible run on any triathlon route in the country. The setting at Plas y Brenin is truly iconic, this is possibly the most beautiful view in the World!
