Race Offerings Extended For Long Course Weekend 2016

As we see the Long Course Weekend close in record time this year; the team at Activity Wales Events have extended the race offerings for 2016.

Matthew Evans, AWE Says “development of our junior race series is now one of our key strategies for the next few years; so getting a platform into Long Course weekend was essential.  We are pleased to announce that we will have a Junior long Course for 14-17 year olds and a 5k has been added to run day to appeal to those from 11 years old.  This will then give us a full programme of swim, cycle, run and triathlon from 4 through to 17 years old over the weekend.”

Scott Powell, AWE Says “ For the past few years we have had lots of requests to create a Junior Long Course weekend for children of those taking place and for an ever growing amount of local children getting into the 3 disciplines.  The key element for us was to make sure if we delivered the event, it would be a the same World Class Levels that the adult race has.  The Children will swim 1.2miles, cycle 40 and then finish with the Wales 10k.  All finishers will receive their own 4th medal and in the 1st year it will be a participation event, celebrating those that complete the 3 days.

The 5k event will allow those training for their first ever event or give adults a chance to run along side their children and finish on the famous red carpet!!  We do anticipate that this event will sell out locally very quickly.

The Long Course weekend will be held on the 8,9 and 10th July and entries are available at
