Tenby is a seaside town steeped in ancient history and surrounded by an imposing medieval stone wall. Over time, Tenby has seen many changes, but it has been on the leisure map for over 200 years. With all that experience, the people of Tenby know how to offer each and every visitor an unforgettable time. Notable features of Tenby include 4 km of sandy beaches, the 13th century medieval town walls, the 15th century St. Mary's Church; the Tudor Merchant's House; Tenby Museum and Art Gallery; and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path—part of Wales' only coastal National Park. IRONMAN Wales begins on Tenby's North Beach, which provides one of the most spectacular swim locations on the race circuit. Despite challenging bike and run courses, athletes are treated to consistent and motivating inspiration from some of the most vocal and enthusiastic spectators in endurance sports. IRONMAN Wales offers 65 qualifying slots for the 2018 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.

Volunteering opportunities

IRONMAN Wales is not just for the athletes, it is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved. The local community, the families, friends and supporters and other athletes who are ‘sitting this race out’. Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of an event like Ironman Wales. Everyone who marshals has a story to tell, where they have somehow made a difference on the day. It may be helping at registration, marshaling, manning aid stations, pre and post race set up – and many more things! Please select one or more jobs for which you want to volunteer.

Volunteer package

Our volunteer marshals will receive an IRONMAN volunteer bag and t-shirt and most of all the satisfaction of being part of Pembrokeshire’s most renowned sporting event.
