IRONMAN Wales 2018 Accommodation
Book your IRONMAN Wales 2018 accommodation. Scheduled for Sunday, September 9th 2018, the annual IRONMAN Wales will take place in the coastal town of Tenby, the popular seaside holiday destination, set deep in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, in West Wales.
The 2018 event will be the 7th time the event will have been staged in Tenby, forming a key part of the World Ironman Series, with its spot on the tour confirmed by the organisers a few days before the 2017 event took place. The Ironman Wales / Cymru Event Team also took the time to confirm that the event will stay in Tenby until at least 2021, having agreed to a deal with Pembrokeshire County Council for the continued staging of the event in the county.
FBM Holidays have long been a vibrant supporter of the IRONMAN event, with our heart in Tenby, we feel the area is not only a perfect physical location for the event but also that Tenby comes alive and really welcomes the event with open arms. Ironman events are a feat of physical and mental endurance. Originating in Hawaii, the event is triathlon-based, with a grueling course consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile road cycle and a 26.2 mile (a marathon). Since the event has been based in Tenby, FBM Holidays have always been involved, and as we have the largest range of holiday cottages or apartments in Tenby and plenty of properties throughout the county to base yourself. Whether you want to be in the centre of the action or book a quiet base to prepare, we have the right accommodation for you.
The start of the IRONMAN Wales race is at North Beach in Tenby. After exiting the waters of Carmarthen Bay after the 3.8km swim, the athletes will take on the challenge of the 180km bike course through the fascinating countryside of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, passing numerous castles and iconic landmarks. The medieval town walls and picturesque beach front provide an impressive backdrop for the concluding marathon run through Tenby. If you think this is something you want to take part in, you can find out more about it at the IRONMAN website below, and book with us online up until the week before the event, but be aware, this event books up early!
