Swansea Triathlon Guide
Start date: May 31, 2021
The Swansea triathlon is held every May in the beautiful city of Swansea. This triathlon is held on the seafront of Deal Island, just off the coast of Sale. For those who have never been to Wales, the island of Deal is one of the most beautiful places in the world, offering breathtaking views across the straits and beyond. It is also home to one of the most popular sailing courses in the world, Whitehaven Yacht Club.
While in the city centre, you can explore the museums, galleries, art galleries and the cathedral. On a long course weekend, you should be taking in some of the quieter areas of the city. These include the Market Street area, where you will find a wide range of shops selling locally produced goods, as well as specialist clothing outlets. You will also find a new shopping centre, opening last year in the harbour area of Widnes. It is based in a former grain mill and provides a venue for a number of sporting activities including musical evenings, comedy nights, food events, family entertainment and more.
There are plenty of other things to do in the area when you are in the city centre of Swansea. As well as visiting the various tourist attractions, you can try some of the local activities. The leisure park at Alton Towers is a great place to spend a lazy day, while the local swimming pool has been opened for the summer. Swimming in the pool has never been easier in Swanssea with newer modern pools that ensure you get a healthy and enjoyable experience. You can also visit the picturesque Rideam Lead by Bike track, which has a picturesque section where you can see the stunning coastline from the comfort of your cycle. The track passes through five valleys, making it ideal for cyclists and spectators.
After a day of exploring the city centre, you will want to take in the many sporting options in the area. The Swansea bid is a popular biking trail, which allows you to cycle between six and nine miles of course. You can stop for a BBQ on occasion or enjoy a drink at the famous Braai bar on the seafront. There are bars and restaurants all over the city centre, making it easy to keep track of your running watch during the race, or during your leisure time.
Another thing that makes the Swansea bid so appealing is its location. The city centre is conveniently situated close to the major tourist attractions of Penarth and Blyde Island, both of which offer excellent opportunities to view the action. You can stay in hotels that surround the courses, or there are self-catering apartments available to rent. Most of the accommodation is to book direct with the hotels, as the self-catering apartments are run by the hotels themselves. As well as enjoying the sport that attracts thousands of fans, you can also experience the thrill of watching live music in the evenings.
One thing you cannot miss out on while in the city centre is the Glyndeborough Racecourse. The race is held every year and takes place on the last Saturday of May. This is a completely authentic setting for this prestigious event, with horses and riders galloping around the three-mile course. The venue has also been home to some legendary races, such as the Monaco Grand Prix, so you can also look forward to seeing some of the fiercest competition. Make sure you arrive early to get a good view of the action, and don’t forget your walking shoes! If you are staying in one of the two luxury hotels that surround the course, you can even watch the race in the latest television home of the swans, who are regularly trained to swoop in for the kill at the end of the race.
