EVENT DETAILS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
The swim route is a 750 meter triangular course in the Shannon river. Water entry is at the pebble beach below the Tarmonbarry lock. Tri-a-Tri competitors will complete a 200m swim out to a buoy positioned 100m out and back to the beach.
Transition will be located at the tarmacadam car park on the Bank of the Shannon river below the Lock. During transition competitors will enter and exit the transition area from opposite ends.
The bike follows a 20km out and back course. Upon exiting the Tarmon Harbour housing estate competitors turn right heading east over the N5 Shannon Bridge toward Longford Town. The bike is on open roads and competitors are asked to use the hard shoulder. At the first roundabout competitors take the first exit along the N4/N5 bypass. The second roundabout is at the half-way point of the bike course and is the turnaround point. From here competitors return to Tarmonbarry following the same route and re-entering transition through the same point that they exited.
The run is a 5k out and back route through Tarmon Harbour housing estate, Then across the N5 Shannon bridge and taking a right turn in the direction of Clondra village. A turn around cone will be positioned on road past Clondra village 50 meters short of re-entering back onto the N5. From this turnaround cone it is back to Tarmonbarry N5 Shannon Bridge, crossing the N5 Shannon Bridge and a quick left and using pedestrian laneway to the finish line at Tarmonbarry lock.
