“On Friday evening, the Long Course athletes have The Wales Swim to complete – a 2.4 mile swim that takes place on Tenby’s North Beach. On Saturday their attention turns to The Wales Sportive, and 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside lined with enthusiastic crowds. To finish the weekend, the athletes have the small task(!) of completing the 26.2 miles of The Wales Marathon, which is quickly establishing itself as a fantastic event in its own right.”
Just one Strider took on this event. Steve Emerton completed the swim in 1:03:54, the bike ride in 6:02:43 and the marathon in 3:24:05 to finish 18th out of a total of 605 finishers!
Well done Steve, great form there!
