IRONMAN Wales is excited to announce that proposals to relocate the Athlete Village have been approved, which in turn enables the event to accommodate 100 more athletes in what had been a sold out event.
These additional entries for IRONMAN Wales, which takes place on Sunday 14th September 2014, will go on general sale at 9am next Wednesday 30th April, via www.ironmanwales.com.
For those athletes hoping to qualify for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona Hawaii, IRONMAN Wales is a great opportunity to qualify early for 2015, with 50 qualifying places on offer.
IRONMAN Wales is continually looking to enhance the course and athlete experience. While the transition and post race Athlete Recovery area remain in the Rectory Car Park, a key improvement for 2014 is the relocation of the Registration and Expo to the nearby Five Arches Car Park.
This change of venue not only enables the event to cater for further entries, but it’s position on the bike and run course offers better spectator viewing which in turn will add to the electric atmosphere that Tenby has become renowned for.
Kevin Stewart, Managing Director of IRONMAN UK commented, ”We have been working hard to keep improving and developing the event. A sell out 2,000 entries from over 40 countries have entered IRONMAN Wales. Our aim is to ensure all athletes have a hugely enjoyable and memorable experience, which we hope these on going improvements will achieve.”
IRONMAN Wales, which incorporates a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run, starts at 7am on Tenby’s North beach on Sunday 14th September. With just under 5 months until race day, there are a number of support channels to ensure athletes are fully prepared for and can enjoy this ultimate challenge to the full.
For athletes who want the support and structure provided by professional coaching to ensure they achieve their goals in the race, RG Active and thetrilife.com have online training plans and training weekends in Tenby are also available.
