Athlete Line-Up for CHALLENGE Wales

Friday 09 June 2023

Britain’s only Coastal National Park will once again host Challenge Wales this weekend with top British athletes joining hundreds of age groupers to take on the scenic course. 

Lucy Byram (GBR) is returning to defend her title and it promises to be an exciting defence with fellow Brit, Fenella Langridge also on the start line. The pair last met at The Championship 2023 where it was Byram who came out top, by just one minute. Byram has had an impressive start to 2023 taking wins at both Clash Miami and Challenge Puerto Varas but Langridge is ranked considerably higher, due in part to a strong second place in Roth last year. They are joined by Australian athlete, Renee Kiley plus two up-and-coming British athletes, Lizzie Rayner and Laura Addie.

In the men’s field, the man to beat is Tom Bishop (GBR) who already has one win to his name this season at Challenge Puerto Varas in Chile, plus a top five at The Championship 2023. His competition comes in the form of Harry Palmer (GBR), who placed third at the inaugural edition of Challenge Wales last year, Andrew Horsfall-Turner (GBR) and Jack Hutchens (GBR).

Challenge Wales is known for its spectacular Pembrokeshire course with a swim sheltered by the breakwater that formed the defence line that prevented the last invasion of Britain 1797, fully closed roads on the bike course and a breath-taking coastal run on the circuit that actually heads out to sea! Race start is at 1:00pm local time on Sunday 11 June with live updates at www.challenge-family.live. For further information, visit www.challenge-wales.com.
