Find your extreme Epic in Pembrokeshire this Autumn

Find your extreme Epic in Pembrokeshire this Autumn

As the beaches, countryside and towns of Pembrokeshire empty, the schools go back and the nights get darker noticeably earlier, there’s an unmistakable sense of changing seasons and of the slip into Autumn. But Pembrokeshire is open all year round, and September, with its mild days and possibilities of an Indian summer is definitely a month to embrace the more adventurous side of life.

Cliff Diving  

And what could be more adventurous than cliff diving. The cult Red Bull Cliff Diving spectacular comes to Pembrokeshire this weekend on 11th September 2016 – more precisely to the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. Stop number 6 in the World Cliff Diving series, the line up of 22 daring divers includes 2 British athletes performing their complex dive routines before plunging into the blue waters of this iconic disused slate quarry. A spectacular to take your breath away as you watch – and if you’re inspired, then Pembrokeshire is certainly the place to be.  We’re certainly not suggesting you just head out and take the plunge. But to enjoy the coast line in a more up close, personal and daring way why not check out our local coasteering operators – Celtic Quest Coasteering, Preseli Venture and TYF all offer high adrenaline and super #EPIC coasteering experiences.

Triathlon

Triathlon has become incredibly popular in the last few years, and September sees the culmination of many months of hard training and preparation as the IronMan event comes to Tenby on 18th September. If you’re up for the challenge of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run, you could become an IronMan or Woman next year. Why not give it a go?… Seriously though, these athletes are dedicated and super fit - some might say even “superhuman”. For those who enjoy the vibrant spectacle of the event there’s lots of places throughout the South of the county including swathes of the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, to offer support and encouragement to the competitors as well as enjoying everything that the towns of Tenby, Saundersfoot, Narberth and Pembroke have to offer. There’s also an IronKids event taking place on the Saturday (17th September). Pembrokeshire has a huge variety of terrains and opportunities to get fit, so perhaps next year…

Kayaking / Canoeing

For more linear water fun, the Fishguard Bay Ocean Race will see elite canoeists challenging themselves against fabulous Atlantic swells to compete for a brand new trophy as they navigate their way from Abereiddy to Goodwick on Saturday 24th September. Taking part on the same weekend as the Goodwick Land and Sea Festival, this is a perfect opportunity to enjoy everything our county and its coastline has to offer. Powering their ocean ‘skis’ (super light, long, narrow kayaks) and ocean canoes along the stunning North Pembrokshire coastline, participants will ride Atlantic swells that could help them reach up to 20 mph in their effort to win the trophy. While you may not fancy powering through the waves competitively, kayaking is a great way to experience a different view of our coastline, and get closer to the bird and wildlife that populates our cliffs and beaches. There are a number of adventure sport providers offering guided kayaking tours around the coast.

All this – right on our doorsteps, and available throughout the year. These incredible sporting events serve to remind us just how awesome Pembrokeshire is and how many opportunities there are for all of us to find our epic. With just 4 months left of Wales’ Year of Adventure, why not get out there and take the plunge?
