LCW 2017 Supports Information

For the first event of the Long Course Weekend, the athletes take on the 1.2 or 2.4 mile The Wales Swim.
The swimmers will gather in the water at 6:30pm, but by then we suggest you should already be in your place to watch all the action unfold.
Ideal locations would be along the Croft and the Norton – here you’ll be perfectly placed for the start at 7:00pm.
Saturday 8th July – The Wales Sportive
Early on Sunday morning, the riders will depart the Salterns Car Park on either a 112, 66 or 45 mile route for The Wales Sportive.
The 112 mile riders and Long Course athletes will be departing from 7:00am so make sure you get down there early , in order to get your perfect viewing point.
Once the 112 mile irders and LCW Athletes have left Tenby, why not pop down to Saundersfoot to show your support for one of the highlights of the weekend, the Cycleguard Hill Climn.
Cheer on the riders as they take on one of the toughest climbs of the route, St Brides Hill.
Watch the riders battle against the clock in an attempt to win the exclusive polka dot jersey which again this year will include a Queen of the Hill and Young Rider prize.
First riders are expected at around 10:30am, so make sure to get down there early to get the bet viewing point!
The riders finish their course in Tudor Square, Tenby, so head back to see the athletes finish on the award-winning finish line with the first riders expected at around 1:00pm.
Sunday 9th July – The Wales Marathon

Once the runners have left Tenby , the party continues back at Tudor Square with an incredible atmosphere all the way until the first runner comes back in at around 12:30pm.
