Tenby is the location for one of the most difficult triathlons in Wales – the Long Course Weekend. This event lasts three days, accommodating some of the best triathlon talent in the UK and the world, including a number of IRONMAN UK athletes, serving as the perfect preparation and build up to the IRONMAN Wales event in September.

The weekend starts on Friday evening with The Wales Swim to complete – a 2.4 mile swim that takes place on Tenby’s North Beach.

On Saturday competitors climb on their bikes for The Wales Sportive. 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside lined with enthusiastic crowds.

To finish the weekend, the athletes have the task of completing the 26.2 miles of The Wales Marathon, which is quickly establishing itself as a fantastic event in its own right.

More than 20,000 competitors have attempted the difficult terrain and challenging weather conditions on this punishing route since its first event in 2010. Of last year’s 700 Long Course Weekend athletes, only around half could manage to cross the finish line and collect the final piece of the event’s unique medal design.

Did you know that when the Wales Coast Path opens in May 2012 it will be the only continuous trail on the planet to run the full length of a country's coast! The 870 mile trail would take around 70 days to walk but would take in 18 medieval castles, 11 nature reserves and dozens of beautiful beaches.
