National Paratriathlon Championships

This event will be held in Loughrea for the second year in succession and promises to be a great race. The swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Loughrea lake, the 20K cycle includes some undulating hills but also some faster sections down quiet country roads and the 5k run is out and back with a climb to the turn and a fast decent to the finish line. You can find more details about the course here.
