Are you racing in Tenby this weekend? Make sure you’re prepared for what is renowned as one of the hardest Ironman courses on the circuit, set on the stunning Welsh coast.

We named Ironman Wales 9th in Iron-distance triathlons: the 11 toughest? Do you agree?

Don’t let that dull your appetite though, says 2013 winner Scott Neyedli: “The support and race atmosphere the Tenby locals create is one of the best I’ve experienced worldwide.”


“I would advise anyone to get a practice swim as organised by the Ironman team and drive or cycle parts or whole run/bike loops,” adds Neyedli. “This will help with noting the hard section and also landmarks which will help on race day to break the race up into smaller segments, so nothing unexpected will be presented. Otherwise the swim shouldn’t be too hard, it might be a little cold but it is protected from any big swells.”
