Race Date: Sunday 3rd September 2017
The Bala Standard Distance Triathlon is located in the market town of Bala in North Wales, and is situated within the Snowdonia National Park, on the shores of Llyn Tegid. The Standard Distance Triathlon consists of a 1500m open water swim, a 39 km cycle and a 10k run and takes place in and around the lakeside town, without question one of the most scenic triathlons in the country.
The 2017 staging of the race was won by Thomas Davis of Race Hub Triathlon Club in a total time of 01:52:56, and first lady was Sarah Hodgson (Team GB) in 02:05:53. Braving the less-than-ideal conditions (driving rain and gales), Strider Zoe Marciniak took on the Olympic hopefuls in the field and posted a total time of 03:31:11. Well done Zoe!
