On Sunday, beautiful Pembrokeshire hosts Ironman Wales 2015, which is one of the tougher Ironman courses. Last year’s women’s race was won by G4 Physiotherapy & Fitness’ managing director Glyn Forshaw’s sister, Amy Forshaw. Unfortunately, Amy cannot race this weekend due to injury.

30 countries will be represented by the 2,400 athletes who will take part this year, which is the fifth annual Ironman Wales triathlon.. In 2014, there were nearly 2000 competitors crossed the starting line, running into the sea at the stunning North Beach before they embarked upon a gruelling 2.4-mile sea swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. Reports from the day talk of ‘vociferous support’ and ‘deafening cheering’, which shows the Welsh were in full voice.

Around 50% of those taking part in Ironman Wales have never done an Ironman event previously and they will be racing alongside (or just behind) the elite triathletes, which the Ironman series always attracts.

Good luck to everyone taking part on Sunday, all of us at G4 Physiotherapy & Fitness wish you a great day.
