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 the stunning 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! You are cycling along small country roads, a dirt track and on a small section of the N59. This is not a triathlon, marathon or a fun run, it is an adventure race! It will test 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! Please read everything carefully so there are no surprises on the day. Not quite up to the level for Gaelforce West? Why not try the Connemara Adventure Challenge on 11 May 2013.
