Ocean Lava Wales - Course Info



1.2 mile swim, 56 mile cycle, 13.1 mile run

The course will be fairly fast. The swim course is a very sheltered out and back swim. The bike course starts with a small incline that is a very fast rolling road into and around St Davids. The course then turns back towards Mathry before heading into St Davids for the final time and then straight back to Fishguard. The run course has two real hills and the rest is very fast and flat.

The course runs alongside the headland, so is simply stunning as you run along the coastal path.


The swim takes place in Fishguard bay which is protected by a breakwater on both sides. The two lapped swim enables swimmers to exit the water to large crowds before entering the water for a second and final lap.


The Bike course begins with a steady 3 mile ascent allowing you to fuel, before a fast section all the way to St Davids, the Country's smallest city. Here you will have a huge reception as you cycle around the square. On leaving St Davids you will again enter another quick section offering stunning sea views of the atlantic, before climbing into Trefin and Mathry. Here you turn for St Davids once again to experience the great atmosphere and then head back to T2.


The route above is one lap of the course. Ocean Lava athletes will be required to do four laps of the run route.
