Route Info



An interactive Google map is available showing the cycle and run routes and can be found here.


The cycle route is counter clockwise starting through Fethard village.

The run route is counter clockwise down to Fethard Dock and back to the GAA pitch.

Where the cycle route is on open roads competitors must follow the rules of the road at all times.


The swim takes place on Baginbun beach and is marked out with buoys on the day.

The route is 250m out from the beach, 250m across the bay and 250m back to the beach.

Unfortunately the 2020 Java Republic Tri the Hook scheduled for Saturday 22nd August 2020 has had to be cancelled. This decision was made in concert with Wexford Co Co and the Gardai as well as the other stakeholders in the event.
