Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon & MultiSport Festival
May 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Lough Cutra Castle in Gort is the backdrop to this action-packed weekend of triathlon racing in Gort, Co. Galway. This first race of the Castle Triathlon series in 2019 sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds of the Castle and surrounding area of stunning South Galway.
All of the triathlon races at Lough Cutra Castle kick-off by launching into an open-water swim in the lake, transitioning to the bike route which circumnavigates Lough Cutra itself with The Half Iron Gauntlet cycle taking in the beautiful and breathtaking Burren National Park whilst the run features a mixed terrain in the stunning surroundings of the Castle.
Triathlon Ireland Major Events
Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon has been awarded three races on the Triathlon Ireland Major Events Calendar including; A National Series Standard Triathlon, the fast and furious National Mixed Relay Club Championships and the National Middle Distance Aquabike Championships in 2019.
Back in 2019
In 2018 we introduced our Castle Run Series and Castle Swim Series which saw swimmers and runners enjoy the fun of racing a single sport amidst the full-on atmosphere of a busy triathlon festival.
Swim only events will be held once again with three swim only distances; 1 mile, 2.5km and 5km, suitable for those wishing to dip their toes into the sport of open water swimming or test their open water swim ability over a longer distance.
The 10k & Half Marathon was very popular in 2018 and is expected to reach capacity early on for 2019. Runners enjoyed the fabulous estate at Lough Cutra Castle providing runners of all abilities with the opportunity to enjoy an off road, scenic and stunning course which has previously only been open to athletes participating in one of the triathlon events.
