STAGE 1: RUN (LESS THAN 10KM!)

The first run begins at the bike transition (bike drop) at the Upper Dam on the Upper Reservoir. It then continues south along the path to Waters Bridge. You will then join the path around the Lower Reservoir making your way in a loop back to Waters Bridge and back to the Upper Reservoir where the kayaking will take place. The lakeside paths (the majority of the run) are flanked by trees and the terrain consists of woodland trails but they are rough in places and watch out for brambles. The run is quite flat and very pretty with fantastic views across the water in all directions.

 

STAGE 2: KAYAK (0.5KM)

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 water. You will kayak approximately 0.5km in a looped course in the Upper Reservoir.

STAGE 3: CYCLE (14KM)

The cycle follows the roads outside the reservoir. It starts with a short stretch on the R765 before turning right along the east side of the lower reservoir. It then joins the R764, turning right at Ballyduff cross roads. Two more right turns bring the route back to Roundwood and into the final bike drop at the Roundwood AFC. The cycle is mostly along quiet country roads and has a slight elevation. For information on what bike to use read our FAQ section.

STAGE 4: RUN (0.25KM)

Competitors will run the last short stretch from the bike drop to the finish line in Roundwood AFC.

ADVENTURE DUATHLON - 24KM

The course is the same as above, just without the kayak section.
