Welcome to the 8th year of this Sprint distance event.
The 2013 event will be part of the National Series to be held on August 4th. It will consist of a 750m swim in the crystal clear waters of Loughrea lake. There will be no shopping trolleys, murky reeds or beers cans at the bottom of this lake, just clean, clear water and a sandy base. This race is an ideal event for a beginner triathlete as in much of the area that is swam it is possible to stand up if tiredness sets in. The swim will be well marshaled by canoeists and water safety experts.
The cycle is a 20km circuit which consists of some undulating hills but also some fast sections down quiet country roads. Marshals will be stationed at every turn. This is a no drafting race and it will be rigidly enforced by marshals. Some of the roads will be closed to traffic to assist in having a safer race.
The run is a 5km out and back course, with a climb to the turn and a fast decent coming back into to transition. The road will be closed to traffic.
Once back in transition there will be a massage area to ease aching bones.
There will be further updates on this page as the race draws nearer so please check back for more news and information.
