After what many described as the best-ever year in 2023, the 2024 edition of Ironman Wales is now sold out on general registrations.

Having sold out every year since 2018, Ironman Wales continues to be one of the world’s most iconic races not only for its reputation as one of the most imposing events of its kind but for the world-renowned support from the people of Tenby and wider Pembrokeshire.

This was highlighted by 2023 professional women’s winner, Nikki Bartlett who had this to say following her first ever win in Tenby: “You guys are amazing! This place is incredible, this is probably one of the best days of my life. It means a lot, it’s my first win in the UK on home soil.”

She continued: “What a day, what a place, the people make this what it is. It’s the best race in the world!”

The 2024 race takes place on September 22 and will be the 12th edition of the event, making it one of the longest-running Ironman races on the European tour.

Over 2,000 athletes registered for the 2024 race will be participating at Ironman Wales for the first time, of which close to 1,500 will be participating in their first ever Ironman race.

The race will once again also serve as the Welsh Long-Distance Championship.

Athletes from 28 countries will be preparing to race in Pembrokeshire, and outside of the United Kingdom the top represented countries are Republic of Ireland, the United States, Germany and Belgium.

Closer to home, amongst the top represented regions and cities are Swansea, Pembrokeshire, Cardiff, London and Greater Manchester.

Ironman Wales Race Director, Rebecca Sutherland, said: “We can’t wait to once again welcome thousands of athletes from all over the world to one of the greatest Ironman races on the calendar!

“2023 was regarded as one of the best years to date, but we think we can go one better in 2024.”

Cllr Rhys Sinnett, Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services at Pembrokeshire County Council, described the sell-out of tickets as an ‘overwhelming response’.

“The early sell-out of tickets is testament to the dedication of Ironman Wales athletes and the incredible support which they inspire in our local communities every year,” he said.

“Pembrokeshire has truly taken Ironman Wales to its heart, and we will be proud to host and support such a fabulous event again next year.”

As part of the Ironman Wales weekend, the popular Ironkids Wales will take place Saturday, September 21 with 2,000 kids between the ages of 3-15 taking to the streets of Tenby before finishing under the iconic finish arch.

Ironkids Wales entries are still available.
