Following the success of last years Llanelli Paratriathlon we will be staging the event again in 2015. With Paratriathlon making it’s debut at the 2016 Rio Paralympics our athletes need every opportunity to race in the UK as they aim to qualify for Team GB.
The Llanelli Paratriathlon will accept entries from Classified Athletes together with Un Classified athletes wish to give Triathlon a go. We will also have a Relay Team category so that athletes with disabilities who enjoy swimming, cycling or running can also join up and enter this fantastic event.
Llanelli will host the event as part of the Llanelli Multi-Sport Festival which will incorporate a Junior Duathlon which will take place as the curtain raiser to the Paratriathlon. On Sunday the annual Llanelli Sprint Triathlon takes place which will see nearly 400 triathletes taking part.
Healthy Life Activities have years of experience in organising Triathlon events and although this will be the first time we have organised a Paratriathlon we will ensure that it is also organised to a high professional standard. The 750m swim will be in the safe haven of the North Dock with the bike ride being held on closed roads with a safe off road 5k along the Millennium Coastal Path.
