On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… entry for you and a mate to the Long Course Weekend.

Hold on to your hats because this is probably the greatest competition that has ever been run, anywhere. We couldn’t wait for the official twelve days of Christmas to kick off, so thought we’d take the initiative and run our own very special competition. Every day, for twelve days, we will be profiling a new prize for our 12 Days of Christmas Extravaganza. At the end of this fantastically festive twelve day run one lucky person will get their hands on everything. That’s right: one person is going to win the lot.

But we’re going to make you work for it. Because you can’t just enter once and expect to scoop all of the good stuff. Instead, we need you to enter the competition SIX times over the course of the twelve days. It’s very easy to do – just click here and fill out your name and email address and answer a simple question. And that’s it! Six entries over the twelve days is enough to get your name in the hat to win the kind of prizes that only a lot of money can buy.

So far we’ve thrown in a Lezyne CNC Floor Drive, entry to the Sold Out Marlow Sprint or Olympic distance triathlon, £75 worth of Science in Sport product, a pair of Zoot Ultra TT 5.0’s, Pete Jacobs Signed Kona Race Top and 100 editions of Triathlete Europe (well, placed them gently) into our Triathlete Europe sack, and today it’s all about the awesome Long Course Weekend! Yes, we’re giving away two places (one for you and one for your mate) at the awesome Long Course Weekend.

All the information is here:
Pembrokeshire plays host annually to one of the most difficult triathlons in Wales – the Long Course Weekend. This unique event lasts three days in mid-July, accommodating some of the best triathlon talent in the UK and the world, including a number of IRONMAN UK athletes, serving as the perfect preparation and build up to the IRONMAN Wales event in September.

To kick-off the weekend on Friday evening, the Long Course athletes have The Wales Swim to complete – a 2.4 mile swim that takes place on Tenby’s North Beach. On Saturday their attention turns to The Wales Sportive, and 112 miles of undulating Welsh countryside lined with enthusiastic crowds. To finish the weekend, the athletes have the small task(!) of completing the 26.2 miles of The Wales Marathon, which is quickly establishing itself as a fantastic event in its own right.

More than 7000 competitors have attempted the difficult terrain and challenging weather conditions on this punishing route since its first race in 2010. Of last year’s 200 Long Course Weekend athletes, only around half could manage to cross the finish line and collect the final piece of the event’s unique medal design.

Competition Dates: Friday 12th – Sunday 14th July
Competition Venue: Pembrokeshire – Tenby & Pembroke Starts
