The historic market town of Machynlleth is the setting for this popular early-season sprint triathlon.

Cerist Triathlon Club is one of the oldest established clubs in the UK, and the Dyfi Dash was first staged over twenty years ago. Our races are renowned for their warm and friendly atmosphere, and the Dyfi Dash is a suitable challenge for experienced triathletes and novices alike. Entry is open to Youth age category and above (15+ on 31/12/18). We also allow relay teams of two or three competitors (single gender or mixed) – please contact Cerist if you require help finding partners.

There is plenty to do in and around Machynlleth, with interesting shops, miles of hiking routes, world class mountain bike trails, and stunning coastline nearby. Why not make a weekend of it?

The 2017 Dyfi Dash was a sell out, so please get your entries in quickly!


Swim: 400m (Pool based)

Bike: 19K (Open Road)

Run: 6k (main and back road)


For safety reasons we've had to alter the run route. The new route will be along the cycle path towards Aberystwyth, and is the same length as the original route (6.2k).

Thanks, Cerist Team
