A Look Back On 2023!


Run - 1st Leg

Starting at the roundabout and running on left hand side of the drive turning at the gates and returning to the roundabout turning left run passed the main office, swim start and around the large lake to enter the transition for the bike leg of the event.

Transition Zone

In transition, the athletes will be allowed to have all their gear with them in the 2m area set aside for them.

All athletes will be allowed to have a “box” for their gear but will need to keep their gear in that box, any items outside could result in a penalty!!

Here is layout of the transition from swim entry to bike out.


The bike is a fast course with only 187m of elevation over the 19.5km.

The route starts on the main entrance to the Ballyhass Aquapark. Cycling up the drive and at the main entrance turning left and following the road passed the quarry  and up to the Castlemagner junction. A left turn here, please be aware of the safety notices that will be on the route. We will have marshals on the route.

Through Castlemagner and turning left onto the R576, please note this has a stop sign, and the roads are not closed, so please abide by the rules of the road. There will be marshals on the road.

As the pace is picking up here it’s down to the junction with the N72, this is a sharp right followed by a sharp left and onto the hard shoulder all the way to the junction with the L1201 where there is a little drag. From here its back to Ceclistown. From the top of the square in Cecilstown, please be aware of other athletes on the road, when making your way back to transition – distance 19.5KM.


Through the transition area and out onto the run course.

Starting on the grass but quickly on the gravel of the entrance drive. As you exit the main gate keep to your right and you are running West along the road into Cecilstown.

In Cecilstown you will turn right for the last 2.2 km of the run to the finish line – it’s all downhill from here. 

Over the finish line situated in the field next to the transition.
