"JAILBREAK TRIATHLON" – Cobh Triathlon Clubs flagship event will take place on Saturday September 6th in the historic town of Cobh. All levels are catered for in this Triathlon Ireland sanctioned event with both sprint and olympic distances available.
• Olympic distance consists of a 1500m swim from the former prison island of Spike to Cobh on the great island, a 40km relatively flat, fast and technical cycle, followed by a flat scenic run on the waterfront.
• Sprint distance offers a 750m swim, a 20km flat and fast cycle, followed by a flat scenic run on the waterfront.
While the olympic distance offers a challenging race, the sprint distance is beginner friendly but still technical enough to challenge seasoned sprinters.
This is a great race also for relay teams with challenges offered in all disciplines. This is a one of kind race in this part of the country – where else do you get to "jailbreak" from a former prison island across the worlds second largest naturalharbour. Spectator support in this race is second to none with the start and finish of the of the race centred in the town itself. We have received great feedback from both established and up and coming triathletes.

This is a TI sanctioned event so if you do not hold a TI card you will have to purchase a one day licence from Triathlon Ireland.Updates will be available on Cobh Tri web page and also on Facebook.
