Course

Swim Course – 1.9km

The Sospan Sizzler Middle Distance Triathlon will start with a 1.9km open water sea swim at Burry Port. This will be a mass swim beach start and you complete 2 laps of the swim course – there is a high tide so the buoy for you to turn on to start your second swim lap will still be afloat – swim around this and head back out on your second lap.

Bike Course – 93Km

This bike course will take you from the picturesque coastal village of Burry Port and into the rural splendour that Carmarthenshire has to offer. The 46.43km bike loop contains just over 3000ft of climbing but does also provide plenty of opportunity to average some high speeds as you return from Idole Carmarthen. At the end of Lap 1 you will cycle back through Burry Port where there will be large crowds gathered to encourage you as you head out on the 2nd lap.

There will a feed station at 46km which is next to Burry Port Harbour and we recommend you carry two drinks bottles with you and you will be able to collect two drinks bottles at the feed station. Drinks bottles will contain High 5 Energy drink or Water. Please throw your empty drinks bottles on to the grass verge as indicated in diagram below.

Run Course – 21km

The run course is a fast one although the coastal wind may play it’s part! We have designed a course that will allow you to run through the supporting crowds at Burry Port Harbour on three occasions before a grand stand finish on the Sospan Sizzler carpet. The run will take you out along the Coastal path towards Cefn Sidan beach for 3.5km before returning to Burry Port harbour and then out on a 3.5km loop towards Llanelli on the tarmacademed cycle path. That takes you up to 14km and then you re-trace your steps once again down towards Cefn Sidan with a grand stand finish outside Burry Port Harbour.  You will pass feed stations at 3.5km, 7.0km, 10.5km, 14.0km, 17.5km and of course there will be plenty of nutrition at the Finish Line.
