Remember: No Helmet = No Race …… No Exceptions
Note: There is a 250m run from the bike-rack to the mount/dismount zone.
The three courses are designed to cover everyone’s fitness and experience level;
The 79.5Km Expert will challenge those who are regular adventure or triathlon racers, who are capable of racing for between 4 and 6 hours while transitioning from one discipline to another. Expect mixed surface running and open country road biking (some poor sections) with several tough hill climbs.
The 53.5Km Sport is laid out to stretch those who like to challenge themselves to push their general fitness a bit more than normal. Expect to race for 2 to 3 hours whilst mixing disciplines. You will be biking and running in wet attire. Don’t be surprised if you have to get off the bike from time to time.
The 26Km Taster does exactly what it says on the tin! This is great way to introduce yourself gently to adventure racing with the combination of a straightforward 6km run and then a 20km cycle along a stunning coastal route.This course should give you the taste for the 50+Km course for next year!
Note: There will be cut off times at the end of the Lough Hyne Hill run section. These will be noted in the pre-race briefing.
The Expert & Sport courses will have MSAI National Series Points associated as determined by MSAI.
Running costs are met via sponsorship.
Note: Expert Course covers 76Km so only dangerous junctions will be marshaled, however the course will be heavily signed. Due care and attention must be taken at all times since the event is on open roads.
