Tracy is excited to return to Pembrokeshire for Long Course Weekend 2017 “Taking part in the Long Course Weekend in Tenby last year was incredible. It is by far the most well organised event I have participated in, with the most amazing energy and support. The people of Tenby are wonderful and the effort the town goes to, to make the athletes feel welcome is something that makes this event a “must do” on the triathlon calendar. When I finished the event in 2016 all I could think about was doing it again and I really can’t wait to race in 2017.”
