Route description
Route description

Contestants taking on the full Long Weekend will take part in the 3 full distance events over the 3 days. All other competitors can choose any distance for each discipline over the 3 days. All the events will take place in stunning scenery taking in the best Pembrokeshire has to offer.

The Wales Swim — 2.4 Miles

On the Friday entrants will take part in the full 2.4 mile swim on North Beach, Tenby. The route is two laps of the course, doing the second lap having exited the water and followed the chute back to the start line. The event will be organised to start as close to high tide as possible, depending on visibility. This part of the weekend has a 2 hour cut off, with athletes failing to complete the course within this limit getting a DNF and their chance to win the Long Course Weekend title over.

The Wales Sportive — 112 Miles

Saturday is the chance for contestants to take things a little easier, with a 112 mile sportive taking you through some of the most picturesque areas of South Pembrokeshire. Feed and water stations will be placed along the route to give you the extra boost for tackling the steep climbs. Cut off for the 2nd lap of the 112 mile course will be implemented at 1:30pm at the finish line/2nd lap junction in Tenby. Again, athletes failing to finish the route will class as a DNF. Please not this is an open road event, so cyclists will need to be wary of traffic along the course.

The Wales Marathon — 26.2 Miles

The final day of the weekend, Sunday, sees the contestants take on the 26.2 mile marathon between Tenby and Pembroke. This event is a closed road route, so there will not be any worries about traffic for runners. Feed and water stations are situated roughly every 5 miles on the course. The cut off time for this event is 6 hours, so anyone still with a chance of becoming the champion needs to finish before 4:00pm.

The following distances are available through the weekend.
