STAGE 1: RUN (8KM)
Half of the run is on the road and half is off-road on a rough trail. The race starts with the road run along the N59 towards Leenane village. This is a combination of downhill and flat. You will then join the rough trail (part of the Western Way) to make your way back to Killary Adventure Centre. This part of the run is uphill. The final 500m is across bog land.
STAGE 2: CYCLE (16KM)
The cycling section takes in 2 types of terrain. Half of the track is Coillte forest track and the other along sealed roads. We say sealed roads but this is Connemara so do not expect smooth, flat, pothole-free roads! For information on what bike to use read our FAQ section.
STAGE 3: RUN & KAYAK (2KM)
There is a short run to the kayaks, through bog land initially and then onto a rough track 1.5km.
The kayaks will be 2 person sit-on-tops so grab a partner (the next competitor to you if racing alone) and take to the Killary Fjord. You will kayak approximately 0.5km in a loop.
STAGE 4:RUN (1KM)
After the kayak section there is a short trail run back to Killary Adventure Centre and the finish line.
ADVENTURE DUATHLON - 24KM
