Saturday 3rd August 2019
Cloone: Cloone, Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland
We're back again for 2018. This will be the 6th year for our local race. As past compeitors will confirm, this is a duathlon race with a difference – both fun and hardship are guaranteed! We aim to provide a high standard race at a very affordable price. The race should attract beginner to elite racers. We also aim to cater for families with the inclusion of an Under 16s 5km adventure race (including goodie bag). This was the highlight of our race in 2017, as the kids were all buzzing afterwards (we couldn't get them off the water slide)!
All participants are also included in the now famous Boxy Breakfast (post race!) and visitors have the option to eat their fill for €5.
Truely a race to challenge the most competitive athlete and the those looking to challenge themselves...and a great way to start the bank holiday weekend! Hope to see you there again this year...bring a friend as we are aiming for 150 in the main event. We are including Chipped Timing for all the races this year - based on feedback. T-shirts for the first 100 registrations online (link provided).
