Since IRONMAN Wales opened entries for 2015, demand for places has hit a record rate for this soon to sell out race on Sunday 13 September and of the 2,500 places available, just 50 remain.

Renowned for also being one of the toughest events on the IRONMAN Tour, this is not enough to deter 2,500 athletes in their desire to cross the finish line of this iconic 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run challenge.

51% of those entered will be embarking on an IRONMAN for the first time. 
While the event has attracted an international field since its inception in 2011, Pembrokeshire has hit the record books with local entries being the highest per head on record for an IRONMAN event and it seems 2015 is no exception with 192 locals already entered. 
At the age of 18, local student Lewys Gibby is the youngest competitor, who said:
“I have been desperate to compete in the Wales IRONMAN ever since the event came to Tenby.  This will be the first year I will be old enough to compete.”
Managing Director of IRONMAN UK Kevin Stewart commented:
“Pembrokeshire has very much put IRONMAN Wales on the IRONMAN Tour map. We certainly couldn’t achieve this without the phenomenal support and the manner in which Pembrokeshire embraces the event. While 2015 is the end of our current agreement for the event, we sincerely hope that we will be returning for many years to come.”

Organisers are anticipating the event to be full in a matter of days, so would urge athletes to enter early to avoid missing out at
