Éireman X began its life as an Off – Road Triathlon. The swim, off-road cycling and cross terrain running combo has been a big hit with people. This is an alternative event that has more fun and adrenaline than normal races, with a bit of madness in-between and some degree of skill of course.
However, we acknowledge that not everyone likes open water swimming, so in 2011 we are pleased to include the option of the Off–Road Duathlon. This is a Run – Bike – Run. Same course = same madness.
For those who are looking for an extra stimulus from triathlon, mountain biking, cyclo-cross or adventure racing or just looking for Craic in general this will be right up you street.
Be warned: this is neither a classic mountain bike course nor a straight forward triathlon. You are going to get wet (swimming or not). You are going to get muddy. You will carry your bike over obstacles in the woods. You will be jumping into rivers and climbing out of them. But most of all you are going to enjoy the fun. Note: No purchase of one day licence required. Limited to 200
