Castle Tri Virtual Race Series – Week 1
Apr 24, '20 at 8:00 am - Apr 26, '20 at 5:00 pm
In these unprecedented times when we all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and society at large, The Castle Series who host Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon in Galway have launched their inaugural virtual race series for all ages and abilities. All to keep as many people as possible connected, fit and sane in this period of unprecedented lockdown, and to raise as much money as possible for their charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support.
Following the success of their Easter Virtual Challenge, the Castle Virtual Series will run three events, across three weekends in April and May, with three country themes to mirror their summer programme of European events. Whether you’re 8 or 88 there is a race for you. All competitors are welcome to race virtually with The Castle Series community from within the boundaries of your home and immediate surroundings.
The Virtual Series will celebrate the host countries of the Castle Triathlon Series events across France, UK and Ireland. You can sign up to one, two or all three events.
- 24th – 26th April Vive La France
- 8th – 10th May VE Day 75th Anniversary
- 22nd – 24th May Luck of the Irish
Choose from 7 different run/bike/run duathlon options and three running distances. Track your progress throughout each weekend on our leader board and tune in for the live prize-giving ceremony on Facebook.
Prizes will be awarded for gender winners in each age and distance category and special awards will be provided for the most creative course design and best dressed.
To create a truly community event, they are asking all participants to carry out their challenge over the event weekends making the most of the space and time you have to exercise in a safe but competitive environment.
The Castle Virtual Series will donate 20% of each race entry fee to their long-term charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support. This will help Macmillan Cancer Support continue to deliver their physical, emotional and financial support to help people with cancer and their families.
