Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon

Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017

This first race sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds and surrounding area of stunning South Galway. What’s more, the race coincides with a Bank Holiday in the UK and it is also the first weekend of the UK school half term, making it an ideal break for sporty families.

All of the races at Lough Cutra Castle kick-off by launching into an open-water swim in the lake, transitioning into a bike route which circumnavigates Lough Cutra itself. The half iron gauntlet cycle takes in the beautiful Burren national park.
