Experience the challenge of the 5th Annual Castleconnell Boat Club Sprint and Try a Tri Triathlon at the fantastic River Shannon and village locations.The Sprint triathlon is open to all, we have targeted this event for seasoned competitors. The shorter Try-A-Tri is for those curious about triathlons and the first-time competitors.
This years event will start with a 750 meter (Sprint) Swim*, (or a 175 meter Try-a-Tri Swim), in the River Shannon just in front of the Boat Clubhouse. This is the well-known World’s End recreational spot. After emerging from the water, bikes will be collected on the lawn alongside the Clubhouse (T1).
The 20km Cycle course will take competitors out onto the old Dublin road. This is much quieter and safer since the M7 motorway was opened in 2010. The route will travel eastwards to Birdhill, where there is a left-hand turn back over an undulating course to the small, pretty village of Montpelier.
After a sharp left at the Montpelier Community center, it is back along the bog road to Castleconnell village. Upon entering the village, the cycle route ends at the public play ground and car park area (T2).
The Run will be 5km around the outskirts of the village and returning to the play ground to the finish line.
