The Newton Wales Marathon is part of The Long Course Weekend which is now Wales' largest multi-sport festival. It is a unique event that attracts some of the best triathletes in the world. The weekend kicks off on the Friday with a gruelling 2.2 mile swim on Tenby's North Beach.
On Saturday competitors take to their bikes and tackle 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside. The weekend culminates on Sunday with the Newton Wales Marathon. If you're more of a runner don't worry - you can enter the marathon (or half) as stand alone events if you don't fancy this difficult tri!
A tough course with lots of hills. The marathon starts at Tudor Square in Tenby (8am start) whilst the half marathon starts at midday at Pembroke Castle.
Both of these events are on closed road routes, so there won't be any worries about traffic for runners to dodge!
