this sprint distance race is perfect for both the newcomer to triathlon and the more experienced
triathlete who is looking for a personal best.

Race entry:

Enter via the Triathlon Ireland Race Calendar. The entry fee is non-
refundable. However, you may transfer your entry to another athlete up to two weeks before race

Course overview:

The race consists of a 750m sea swim from Port beach, followed by a 20km cycle – out and back 10km each way – on roads with a rolling road closure. The 5k run will be an out and back 2.5km route that will take competitors to the finish line back at Port beach. No roundabouts, no traffic lights, and cars will be kept to a minimum (as we do need to facilitate local residents who may
need access during the event), this is pure rural bliss! You can find more information on the course information page.

In the unlikely event that the swim leg were cancelled due to adverse weather, Pulse Triathlon Club reserves the right to change the race to a duathlon format. We cannot issue a refund.

How to get there:

The triathlon takes place at Port beach, just north of the village of Clogherhead in Co. Louth and accessed via local road L2244. (GPS 53.8271471, -6.2614829). For detailed directions, click here.
