Activity Wales launch Middle Distance in 2013 dates

Activity Wales released their 2013 race dates to the tri press today with the confirmation of the much awaited middle distance race that so many have been waiting for.

On August 3rd, we will be hosting a middle distance race in Fishguard Pembrokeshire.  Whilst the routes are still to be confirmed Scott Powell of Activity Wales events commented”We will be looking to integrate not only the town of Fishguard into this race, but also take the race into the heart of St Davids and show the triathlon world what a real jewel in the crown this area of Wales is.  We aim to really add to what we did at Ironman Wales in the first year and develop a true weekend festival, attracting families from all over the world, put on a quality race and a quality weekend.”

 

Matthew Evans says ” Being 6 weeks out from Ironman Wales it is the ideal platform for all UK athletes, and will have that real community and passionate feel Wales had in that first year.  Also being in the heart of the school holidays it will allow families to travel together and really be part of the whole festival.  The team left the venue on Tuesday morning with so much excitement.  This is without doubt one of the most breathtaking swim, bike and run courses I have ever seen.  Tie that into a community that is passionate and a focus on celebration; I think this will be one of the most spectacular races of the calendar.”
