Titan Brecon Middle Distance Triathlon is back for 2018 and promises to be bigger and better than ever. After a sell-out year in 2017, Titan Brecon is now firmly established on the British middle distance triathlon calendar and has the necessary backing to double in size for 2018.
A superb venue in the Welsh Brecon Beacons, with a beautiful lake swim, an ‘epic’ bike course and a traffic-free park-based run.
There’ll be a £1200 prize purse up for grabs, as well as a polka dot jersey for the King and Queen of the “Iron Mountain”.
The event is located at the beautiful Parc Bryn Bach on the edge of the Brecon Beacons in Wales, and is easily accessible from South Wales, Bristol, Birmingham, London and the South West. This all adds up to making Titan Brecon the ‘must do’ middle distance triathlon on the British events calendar.
Titan Brecon Middle Distance Triathlon starts with a 1.2 mile two-lap swim and takes place in the park lake, fed by the waters of the Black Mountains in Wales and in 2018 there will be some serious gardening done as the lake is cleared entirely of weed at swimming depth to make it a much improved swim
The 60-mile bike course has now built a following of fans and ‘epic’ is the word! The quiet roads have excellent riding surfaces and the route tours the beautiful Brecon Moors before culminating with a sustained climb back to T2.
The final 13.1 mile run is a three-lap route around the lake and park – so it’s great for spectators!

There are no official cut offs for each section of Titan Brecon Middle Distance Triathlon, though we do expect competitors to be close to finishing within 8.5 hours. However, we take a common sense approach on this, and if you are close to completing you will be able to finish. If you are deemed to be a danger to yourself you will be asked to stop, or if you are taking significantly longer than we deem acceptable you again will be asked to stop. For more information on cut offs please email email@example.com
