About the Area
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.
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.
The picturesque walled town of Tenby is the perfect location for your next holiday in Pembrokeshire! With four beautiful beaches which can rival any others in the world, it's a must-visit destination for those wanting to top up their tan or practice their sandcastle building skills.
