Wales Long Course Weekend

Minimum Fundraising Pledge: £650
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 talent 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.
To kick-off the weekend on Friday evening, the Long Course athletes have The Wales Swim to complete - a 2.4 mile swim that takes place on Tenby's North Beach. On Saturday their attention turns to The Wales Sportive, and 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside lined with enthusiastic crowds. To finish the weekend, the athletes have the small task(!) of completing the 26.2 miles of The Wales Marathon, which is quickly establishing itself as a fantastic event in its own right.
We have a limited number of places in the Wales Long Course Weekend. Take on this incredible challenge and raise money to help us care for even more animals.
If you would still like to be involved in the Long Course Weekend but would rather choose just one of the events to tackle we have places in the Wales Marathon, Wales Half Marathon, Wales 10k and the Wales 5k.
If you've already secured your own place in the Wales Long Course Weekend, we'd love for you to join Team Animal and help us rescue more animals when they need us most. There's no minimum fundraising pledge and you still get all the great Team Animal benefits.
