The inaugural Hollymount Duathlon, on 14th January 2018, will be the second event in the Ireland West Duathlon Series 2018. The Duathlon will consist of a 5k run, a 19k cycle and a 3k run which will start & finish on the main street in the Village of Hollymount.
Stage 1 which is a 5k run takes participants out the Claremorris Road for 1.5K before turning left in through the local roads for 3k and returning to Hollymount via the Ballinrobe road.
The transition will be on the GAA pitch grounds where participants will collect their bikes for the 19k cycle. Again this 19k cycle will take participants out the Claremorris road for 4k before turning left at The Country Club pub. Stage 2 continues through the Roads of Taugheen to Peter Touhey’s pub in Newbrook with a fast 8K finish back to transition in the GAA Grounds.
Stage 3 will be a 3k run which will be one lap of the Hollymount Road Race in reverse to the finish line which will be on the main street in Hollymount Village.
All three stages are generally flat and suitable for athletes of all levels with exceptional times expected for the elite athletes, however, this duathlon also offers beginners the opportunity to kick start 2018.
Prizes for top 3 male & female and all age categories. Also, valuable points to be won for the Ireland West Duathlon series
