What is the Tenby Ironman Race?
On Sunday 8th September 2013 a beautiful sunrise in Tenby set the scene for this amazing race – The Ironman! An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile run, raced in that order and without a break. We were lucky enough to see the swimmers warm up and then set off!
The start of the race is at North Beach. After exiting the waters of Carmarthen Bay after the 3.8km swim, the athletes took on the challenge of the 180km bike course through the breathtaking countryside of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, passing many castles and landmarks. The medieval town walls and picturesque beach front provided an impressive backdrop for the concluding marathon through Tenby. Athletes had until midnight to compete the race!
The first competitors were out of the water before 8 and then ran through the town to get their bikes from South Beach car park to set off on the mammoth bike ride round south Pembrokeshire. Ending with a marathon for a full 26 miles. What an achievement for the many who succeeded in knocking minutes off their personal best.
The race is scheduled already to return in 2014 on 14 September. Check out Tenby Ironman 2014 for more details! Not to be missed!

Behind Puffin House is a lovely walk which goes round the “Slash Pond” – this is the only evidence remaining of a coal industry in the area many years ago. The the large pond is inland from Broad Haven beach. This is referred to as ‘the Slash pond’ and was formed in the 19th Century by colliers digging for culm. The amount of coal produced in the Little Haven area was fairly small compared to the large amounts mined at the areas. It is an easy walk including with pushchairs and if you want to you can take a detour to the wonderful broad Haven playground. Children will love the great variety of play apparatus up there suitable for all ages too.
