About the Long Course Weekend

Long Course Weekend

Location: Tenby, Pembrokeshire

MEDAL EVENTS: Swim, Bike, Run, Full Long Course, Junior Long Course, Half Distance, Taff Kids

COMPETITORS: mixed gender race

Pembrokeshire plays host annually to one of the most difficult triathlons in Wales – the Long Course Weekend. This unique event lasts three days in mid-July, accommodating some of the best triathlon talents 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. To kick-off the weekend on Friday evening, the Long Course athletes have The Wales Swim to complete – a 2.4 mile swim that takes place on Tenby’s North Beach. On Saturday their attention turns to The Wales Sportive, and 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside lined with enthusiastic crowds. To finish the weekend, the athletes have the small 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 1000 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.
