Skerries Triathlon course
The 750m Swim loop
The swim will be a sea swim on a triangular course off the main Skerries Beach (pictured). You will start on the south beach and run into the sea to start. The Olympic competitors will complete two laps.
The 20km Cycle loop
The cycle will be on a single 20km loop. Within 1km you will hit the BLACK HILLS which have been the highlight of the RAS’s final stage for the last three years. This course has always always been won and lost on the bike, Long may this tradition continue.The olympic competitors will do two loops of this 20km course. Start and finish will be next to the lifeguards hut on the south beach.
The 5km Run loop
The run will be on a single loop out and back along the Skerries seafront and around the peninsula. The surface will be a mixture of footpath and grass, but will avoid the sandy beach. The olympic competitors will do this run loop twice.
