Gaelforce West is the largest one-day adventure race of its kind in the world. It is a multi-sport adventure race involving cycling, running, hiking and kayaking. The course of approximately 67km stretches from Glassilaun beach to Westport. En route, there are some significant obstacles to cross, including Killary Harbour and the famous holy mountain of Croagh Patrick. It is important to note that you will get wet and dirty; you are running through bogs, along mountain paths and up Croagh Patrick! This is not a triathlon, a marathon or a fun run ... it is an adventure race which will est you both physically and mentally, but the elation you will feel at the end when you cross the finish line, will make it all worth it! Not quite up to the level for Gaelforce West? Then why not try the Connemara Adventure Challenge on the 12th May which is only 31km. And, if you are looking for something even more extreme, check out the new Gaelforce Extreme which will see you take on a longer kayak, climb Mweelrea and then take on the normal Gaelforce West course!
