Lough Cutra Castle - Competitor testimonials

Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon has been a great success. Check out what our legendary competitors had to say about it.

I have previously done Castle Series Triathlons but not standard distance, this year I did Ireland, I loved it! There was fog which affected the Gauntlet races prior to my race and they had to delay but my race went ahead later than planned and it was awesome. Safety first, at 8am you couldn’t even see the buoys in the lake! The lake was cleanish compared to others! The roads were brilliant for the cycle and the run route was varied. I love the castle series, the organiser Brian is fab, will help anyone out if he can! The support team is ace, the will do anything to help anyone out as well. Thanks again.

I am a race organiser and I am quiet picky about the events organisation, especially when they are commercial like my events.
Lough Cutra set up is just one of the professional set up I have seen, while the price can put you off, signing up wis well worth what you pay for.
Great set up, great design of the course and scenery. You get plenty great food, Lots of marshals, Police, Superb water safety etc…..
You will Enjoy the event, guarantee.

The organisation, course, support and overall experience at this race were second to none for the athlete and spectator alike.
Be prepared for natural beauty, a cold lake, some tough cycling and an off road run. Despite the challenges the course presents it is achievable for all especially with the encouragement and enthusiasm of the spectators and organisers.
I would highly recommend a visit to this beautiful part of the world, I hope to make it over again.

It was a super race in Lough Cutra. The crew unexpectedly had to turn the Gauntlet into a duathlon due to fog and safety issues but they were brilliant and did it so quickly & successfully. Great race, beautiful location and lots of fun. I highly advise anyone with kids to get them involved too.. The kids triathlons at all the Castle races are fab.. Join me there

Stunning scenery & weather for a swim, cycle & run around the estate of Lough Cutra Castle in Co. Galway, Ireland. Well organised & great inspiration from both half ironman distance triathletes and also young kids doing their own triathlon race!
