An Cheathrú Rua in the heart of Connemara will play host to Ras Na Nollag. A variety of fun and challenging races will unfold throughout the day beginning with a fun bike race and pedal go-kart race for Kids of all ages, starting at 11.00am.
The duathlon features one of the most scenic and diverse courses in Ireland. The race features a 7km run followed by a 22 km cycle. The run section takes in views of Great Mans Bay. While the bike section sweeps out around Loch an Mhuilinn.
Each competitor will wear a timing tag which will register their time and will have the option to receive their time by text.
The race is also open to teams, but if you are without a team mate, there are a few participants looking at finding a team mate on the day.
We are looking at the possibility of placing cameras out on the course, so that supporters can see some of the race indoors,
Some on site features for the athletes include, bike maintenance by Nigel’s Cycle Store and pre race hot drinks in An Cistin.
Prizes will be awarded for the top three male and female finishers overall, first finishers in four age categories, and first team.
