REDDITCH duo Mark Tanner and Gary Jarvis tested their strength and endurance as they tackled the Ironman Wales event.
Sixteen hundred competitors took on the 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2 mile marathon event.
The swim took place in the waters of North Tenby beach with Jarvis completing it in 59 minutes and Tanner 70.
Rain ensured the bike ride was a gruelling event, with the hilly 42-mile second lap testing the pair. Tanner finished the section in six hours and 45 minutes, while Jarvis was just behind in 7.04.
The final challenge was through the undulating cobbled streets of Tenby over four laps.
The duo managed to cross the finishing line with overall times of 13.12.45 for Jarvis and 12.32.34 for Tanner.
