Sell-Out Field for Challenge Wales

This Sunday, a sell-out field of age group and professional athletes will line up at Challenge Wales on the stunning Pembrokeshire coast to take on 113km of swim, bike, run in the UK’s only Coastal National Park.

Heading the men’s pro race is Joshua Lewis (GBR) who was third in last year’s Challenge London, but while he may be the highest ranked, he will face stiff competition from fellow countrymen, Kieran Lindars and Iestyn Harrett. Lindars, former European Long Distance Champion, and second at Challenge Almere in 2023, will be looking for a home win, as will Harrett, who has already tasted victory in 2024 with his win at Anfi Challenge Mogán-Gran Canaria. Also in contention are Thomas Davis (GBR), fresh from his third place at OTSO Challenge Salou last weekend as well as Will Draper (GBR) who took third at Challenge St Pölten earlier this month and Harry Palmer (GBR) who’ll be looking to go one step up the podium, after his second place at Challenge Wales in 2023.

In the women’s race, Lizzie Rayner (GR) returns following her second place here last year and on paper is the one to beat. She is joined by Chloe Sparrow (GBR) who recently took second at Challenge St Pölten and Rosie Weston, among others.

Professional athletes will not only be competing for a share of the prize purse but also for valuable points for the Challenge Family World Bonus with its US$100,000 end-of-year bonus.

Challenge Wales takes place along Pembrokeshire’s spectacular coastline, with a course that is recognised as one of the best in the UK. Based in Fishguard with its sheltered Fishguard Bay swim, hilly but breathtaking bike course on fully closed roads and astonishingly scenic run course with sea views at every turn that is triathlon’s only run course that actually heads out to sea.

Living timing and updates will be available at with the Challenge Wales start gun set to go off at 10:00am local time on 9 June. For further information, visit
