Bluestone Pembrokeshire Coast Triathlon

What and where is the event?

A standard distance triathlon (1500m swim, 42k bike, 10k run) set in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park at Broad Haven, a beautiful expanse of golden sand. In 2023 the event will once again be hosting a stage of the Welsh Triathlon Super Series and will therefore be televised. The event is permitted by British Triathlon.

How big is it?

The field is limited to 400 competitors. Relay teams are encouraged and very welcome!

What is the course like?

As standard distance triathlons go, it would be fair to describe this one as challenging! The 1500m open water sea swim is a rectangular course and never ventures more than 200m from the shoreline. The 42k bike has over 400m of climbing, and is mainly on rural roads with some fast flat sections, especially as you head back to Broad Haven from Haverfordwest. The first 3k of the run, which has 130m of ascent in total, takes you onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with spectacular views over St Bride’s Bay, before returning on quiet country lanes to Broad Haven and the famed beach finish.

Course maps can be found in the Athlete Brief (2023 version).

Is it suitable for novices?

Plenty of people have made this their first ever triathlon, but it is pretty challenging. You need to be able to complete the swim in one hour, and have completed the swim and the bike in three hours, to be allowed on to the run course.

What is the minimum age?

You need to be 17 or over on 31/12/2023.

How much is it to enter?

£70 (individuals), £85 (relay teams)
