The Long Course Weekend returns to Tenby and its surrounding areas this weekend, following a hiatus during the pandemic.

The sporting event which is set to attract 12,000 athletes, begins with the Wales Swim on North Beach on Friday evening (July 1), with the race commencing at 7 pm. Saturday sees the 112 mile cycle ride; and Sunday finished with a 26.2 mile marathon. See pages 21 to 28 for more details.

A number of road closures are in place for the weekend in Tenby and around the locality, starting on Friday for the swim with a temporary road closure along The Croft between 6.30 and 8 pm.

Further restrictions follow on Saturday for the Wales Sportive cycle ride; and again on the Sunday for the marathon, with some implemented/removed on a rolling basis as the run progresses.

Matthew Evans of Activity Wales Events said: “For the past 9 years we have run the sportive on open roads, but the demand for the event, television coverage and locals moving in their day to day business means we have now moved to dedicated roads for traffic and dedicated roads for the cyclists.”
