STAND-ALONE SPRINT RACE

Unique event with only one distance for all competitors.

ADVENTURE DUATHLON – 29KM

Stay on dry land – same superb course just no kayaking.

TRAIL AND MOUNTAIN RUNNING OR WALKING; CYCLING AND KAYAKING (OPTONAL)

Magnificent natural and varied terrain through unspoilt, dramatic valleys, forests and rugged harbours.


THE COURSE

THE BREAKDOWN OF DISCIPLINE DISTANCES WITHIN THE 32.5KM TOTAL COURSE

1. Running/walking: 14.5km approx     2. Cycling: 17km approx      3. Kayaking: 1km max

THE DETAILED BREAKDOWN:


STAGE 1  RUN/WALK (10KM)
10km run from Killary Adventure Centre starting on the road and then along a rough, rocky trail section of the Western Way.

STAGE 2 MOUNTAIN CLIMB (2KM)
The climb is up one of the foothills of the Maam Turks to an elevation of 342m and the reward of stunning views. This is bog land with soft ground and long grass.

STAGE 3 CYCLING (17KM)
The first 8km is over rough forestry tracks coming out into the Inagh valley. The next 9km is on sealed roads, this is Connemara though so do not expect smooth, flat, pothole-free roads! For information on what bike to use read our FAQ section.

STAGE 4 RUN/KAYAK/RUN (3.5KM)
The run to the kayaking area is across bog land to begin with and then on to a rough track to the water (approximately 1.5km). The kayaks will be 2 person sit-on-tops. You will take to the Killary Fjord with another competitor and kayak approx 1km around a looped course. The final run to the finish line at Killary Adventure Centre is approx. 1km.
