Back for its 34th year, the oldest continually held triathlon in the UK.

Promising a new run course, with the summit of the Sugarloaf above Abeargavenny being the half way point on the run, 1800 feet of climbing, at least its downhill most of the way back. Its still got the Tumble mountain as the big climb on the bike.

Entries opened this morning and still only 35 for Welsh/English Tri members.

Sorry TSH missed your reply. I miss the 'original' Blaenafon course, raced that 9 times, only 1 DNF (double puncture). This years run course sounds good, but without last years extreme bit.

Now over half full.

'Can you handle it?'

Clashes this year with LLanelli Tri, my favourite place to race, of those I can still get round.
