I recently took a trip down to South Wales to meet Matthew Evans and Scott Powell of Activity Wales Events (, to find out more about their marquee event, The Long Course Weekend (

The Long Course weekend is an 'iron-distance event over three days', taking place from 12th-14th July 2013 - and you can find out more about that in my chat with Matthew and Scott HERE.

The weekend though offers something for everyone, with different distance options on each day, with events appealing to swimmer, cylists, runners, duathletes, triathletes and more - take your pick from taking part on one, two or all three days - as well as enjoying the music festival, fashion shows, parties and more!

The third event of the weekend is The Wales Marathon (, which is day three of the Long Course Weekend, Sunday 14th July 2013. In this piece I talk to Matthew and Scott in more depth about the marathon - which is fully closed roads - and the half marathon which starts at Pembroke Castle and joins the full marathon as it passes.

I also chat to local Tenby athlete and multiple Long Course Weekend winner Oliver Simon to get some local knowledge of the marathon route, and his advice on how to deal with running the day after a hard bike ride on the Saturday.
