Bike Course - 20 km

 

The bike course is a two loop course on CLOSED ROADS with very smooth road surfaces in almost every part. The first 2km is a little technical through Quay street and Hoar rock as you leave Skerries, but then you are on the open road, hugging the coastline as you head for Balbriggan. Take time to appreciate the beautiful sea view as you speed along!

The turnaround point will be on a wide section of road, and then it is a very fast 5k section back into Skerries. 

 

"So nice, you get to do it twice!"

 

After the second loop you continue back via the pink route (below) through Hoar rock back to transition

 

 

 

 

Run Course - 5 km

 

The 5km run is truly breathtaking. A pancake flat 5km along the coastline of Skerries with hundreds of supporters cheering you on. 
Run from point A, turn right along path to dog leg, then return along same route to turnaround point at RNLI, back to point B and run up finish chute
