A Monster for Munster


And getting around the island crannog is all part of the fun Join Ireland’s best adventure race – a new challenge. With a varied mix of challenging on road biking, off road running trail, challenging mountain dash and a short kayak section, it is set to get the hearts racing on either the 65km EXPERT category or somewhat easier 35km SPORT category.

Professional event manager Marie Griffin stated: "We’re looking forward to the "dash or dunk" race to the finish element – the brave hearts will opt for the shorter swim route but the athletic determined will try to sprint to the finish". The route follows parts of the scenic Cork/Kerry Duhallow Way, giving you the opportunity to be part of the first ever group to complete this well designed, often challenging, sometimes gruelling, never boring course. Incorporating a steep offroad run to a high point of 644m above sea level, the peak of Mushra More offers superb views of the surrounding countryside. With a bike trail weaving along narrow country roads through some of Ireland’s most unspoilt countryside, this challenge will start and finish at the foothills of Munster’s Boggeragh Mountains in the unique Millstreet Country Park. Be first to complete the short dash or dunk to finish at the Crannog lake……………… within this unique 500 acre parkland.
