Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon and Multisport Festival
May 23 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Lough Cutra Castle in Gort is the backdrop to this action-packed weekend of triathlon racing in Gort, Co. Galway. This first race of the Castle Triathlon series in 2020 sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds of the Castle and surrounding area of stunning South Galway.
All of the triathlon races at Lough Cutra Castle kick-off by launching into an open-water swim in the lake, transitioning to the bike route which circumnavigates Lough Cutra itself with The Half Iron Gauntlet cycle taking in the beautiful and breathtaking Burren National Park whilst the run features a mixed terrain in the stunning surroundings of the Castle.
This year’s event promises to be an amazing festival of triathlon & multisport with events of various distances to test those chasing a personal best and embrace those who are dipping their toes into the sport of triathlon for the very first time.
Swim & Run Only
In 2018 we introduced our Castle Run Series and Castle Swim Series which saw swimmers and runners enjoy the fun of racing a single sport amidst the full-on atmosphere of a busy triathlon festival. In 2019 these events proved to be very popular and are expected to sell out in 2020.
Swim only events will be held once again with three swim only distances; 1 mile, 2.5km and 5km, suitable for those wishing to dip their toes into the sport of open water swimming or test their open water swim ability over a longer distance.
The 10k & Half Marathon participants can enjoy the fabulous estate at Lough Cutra Castle providing runners of all abilities with the opportunity to enjoy an off road, scenic and stunning course which has previously only been open to athletes participating in one of the triathlon events.
MultiSport in 2020
We introduced three new race formats in 2019 with options for both sprint and standard distances across all three events and w3ill once again offer them for 2020. These events offer athletes the opportunity to pick their strongest two disciplines and race in their preferred format across the following races:
Aquabike- Swim & Bike
Aquathlon Swim & Run
Duathlon – Run, Bike Run
There are a host of junior races on offer for the aspiring young athlete across the weekend so come with the family and fanclub, enjoy the racing and festival atmosphere regardless of age or ability and make Lough Cutra your destination race in 2020.
