The 750m swim takes place in the crystal clear waters of Loughrea lake. There will be no shopping trolleys, murky reeds or beers cans at the bottom of this lake, just clean, clear water and a sandy base. The swim will be well marshaled by canoeists and water safety experts.
The cycle is a 20km circuit which consists of some undulating hills but also some fast sections down quiet country roads. Marshals will be stationed at every turn. This is a no drafting race and it will be rigidly enforced by marshals. Some of the roads will be closed to traffic.
The run is a 5km out and back course, with a climb to the turn and a fast descent coming back into to transition. The road will be closed to traffic.
