Long Course Weekend is a stage race-style triathlon that takes place over three consecutive days incorporating the Wales Swim, the Wales Sportive and the Wales Marathon. Taking place in the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park, by the time competitors finish the marathon in the historic coastal resort of Tenby they will have completed an iron-distance triathlon. With thousands taking part, there is legendary crowd support and strong individual competition in each stage, as well as the ultimate prize of being fastest across all three. Presented by Ali Vance with Patrick Winterton providing the commentary.
Ironman Wales takes place amid the castles and stunning landscapes of Pembrokeshire on the south Wales coast. After a 2.4-mile sea swim in the historic setting of Tenby and a challenging 112-mile bike ride, which takes in some of the area's big climbs, the athletes face their 26.2-mile run to the finish. The prestigious event enjoys big crowds and offers participants a chance to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. The race attracts thousands of triathletes, including some of the world's leading pros, as well as Welsh rugby legends Shane Williams, Ryan Jones and Ian Gough.
