Skerries Triathlon

2015 Dublin Triathlon Skerries date: 28th of June

The oldest triathlon in Ireland is getting a new course for 2015.  After 30 years on Skerries South beach, we’re relocating to Barnageeragh beach for the swim.  For the bike course the black hills are gone (yippee, I hear you cry), instead we’re on the coastal road from Skerries to Balbriggan.  Finally the run will take you around the grounds of Ardgillan Castle.
