Long Course Weekend in Tenby with Beavers Retreat

 Can you beat the tough countryside course of Wales’ only 3 day triathlon?


Annually, the beautiful Pembrokeshire backdrop hosts one on the most difficult triathlons in Wales - the Long Course Weekend. This event is unique and includes a number of top athletes from IRONMAN UK preparing for the IRONMAN Wales later on in the year

The grueling weekend is kick started by a 2.4 mile swim on the North beach in Tenby. This is then followed by a 112 cycle the next day, across the undulating Welsh Countryside lined with enhusiastic and supportive crowds. The athletes then have to complete the final leg of the weekend on the Sunday with the small task of a 26.2 mile Wales marathon.

More than 20,000 competitors have attempted to complete the gruelling weekend since it began in 2010. Last year, only half of the field completed the whole weekend.
