Event details are as follows:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
Note: In advance of race day, you will need to separately purchase a Triathlon Ireland race licence or one day licence to do this event. No TI licences will be available for purchase on the day.

Tarmonator Kidathon

We are also running a children's event. The Kidathon will run the evening before the adult triathlon on Saturday 10th June at 6pm. By having it the evening before we can ensure club members can give the children the required supervision to ensure this event is as safe as possible for the children. The event bike and run will be entirely on closed roads in Tarmon Harbour housing estate.

Kidathon Race Start: Saturday 10th June at 6pm
Registration: Tarmon Harbour Sat 10th 5pm
Individual Entry: €TBA
Parking: Tarmon Harbour housing estate side roads.

Event details are as follows:

  1. The children's event will start a swim in waves based on age and ability. For children who are not strong swimmers there will also be an opportunity for children to do a cycle run only. These duathlon children can leave transition when the last Triathlon child in their age group has left transition after their swim.
  2. Children's swim will be from a water standing start at the beach area where we enter for the adult open water swims. A buoy will be positioned out from shore and the children will swim out and around this buoy and back to shore. Kayak and boat water cover will be used for the safety of the children.
  3. Bike will be a one loop 1.78km course on closed Tarmon Harbour housing estate roads.
  4. Run will also be a one loop 790 meter on closed roads on Tarmon Harbour housing estate road using the same finish gantry which will be used on the following day for the adult event.
Note: Children are permitted to purchase a one-day race licence (insurance) on the evening of the children's event along with entry fee to compete. The child's parent must be registered as a Triathlon Ireland site user to register for the event.
