Finishing with a 10k off road run around the stunning grounds of the privately owned Castle estate, and crossing the line to the backdrop of the striking castle, with a €1,000 prize purse for the Olympic Race it is definitely one to consider for 2018.
Speaking about the developments for the 2018 events Brian Adcock Race Director said “We are excited to host the National Series Olympic race in Galway, our Gauntlet Half Iron distance race was on the National Series calendar in 2016 and proved to be very popular with athletes. The Olympic course at Lough Cutra Castle is super and an early season opportunity for athletes to get on the points ladder in a fun, friendly and festival racing environment. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting the Super Series and the Mixed Relay Club Championships in Galway in 2017, both events were exhilarating to watch, we very much look forward to welcoming athletes from all over Ireland to compete for glory across these races again this year”.
