World Mountain Bog Triathalon
Just outside Llanwrtyd Wells a group of people with questionable sanity swim through Waen Rhydd Bog as part of the world's weirdest triathlon. Join them or just watch, the event is spectacular... and dirty.
The event - the most unusual in the Triathlon calendar, starts with a 7.5 mile (6 miles for juniors) run followed by 2 lengths of the 60 yard peat bog trench and then a 19 mile (12 miles for juniors) mountain cycle. The event is open to individuals and relay teams of three.
