Route Info



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


The cycle route is clockwise out the the mini-roundabout between Slade and the Hook Lighthouse and back via Templar's Inn.

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.

There will be some changes in 2022. Details are still being finalised.

Road Closure


This year there are two partial closures in effect for the safety of athletes. The first encompasses the area around transition, the run route and part of the cycle. The second is on another part of the cycle.


Both are not full closures so there may be traffic in these areas. The rules of the road still apply in all areas.


While every effort will be made to avoid this you may encounter some traffic when entering and exiting the road closures.


For locals and those affected by the closure please see this notice.
