Here at FBM, were all really looking forward to this years IRONMAN Wales event in Pembrokeshire, which is set to take place on Sunday the 16th of September. Were even more excited because our very own Billy Connor, who works in Customer Services, will be taking part!
It is thought that over 1,500 contestants from over 40 countries will converge on the Pembrokeshire coastline to test themselves against the ultimate endurance triathlon.
All entrants (including Billy!) will have to complete a 3.8km swim from Tenbys South Beach, before undertaking a grueling 180km bike ride through south Pembrokeshire and a 26.2km run in and around the historic town of Tenby. The race is set to start at 7am, and if last year is anything to go by, the atmosphere alone will be well worth the visit.
And even if youre not looking to push your body to its very limits, Pembrokeshire is a fantastic destination for a holiday, having recently been voted one of the very best coastal destinations on the planet with plenty to do and see regardless of your age.
With countless family-friendly cottages and apartments dotted around the Pembrokeshire coastline, FBMHolidays are sure to have the right accommodation to rest your weary legs, whether youve been gently exploring the Coast Path or vying for the title of IRONMAN Wales 2012!
