32.5 km stand-alone sprint race
The Connemara Adventure Challenge is unique in that you will not be competing or(confusing yourself!) with those doing a longer version of the race as there is only one distance.
Killary Harbour, Connemara
Magical scenery in unspoilt, dramatic valleys, forests and harbours. An incredible setting that just has it all for adventure racing.
Trail/mountain running or walking; cycling and kayaking
Superb natural terrain including bogland, hill, rough track and sealed (Connemara) roads as well as the deep green waters of Killary Fjord.
Groovy music, dancing, swapping stories and a well-earned beer - all this we promise you in our legendary after-party at K2 (Killary Adventure Centre).
Perfect training race or introductory race
32.5 km is perfect for the elite athlete to test their training and for the first-timer it will be a manageable challenge that will allow them to taste the pure joy of pushing and succeeding.
We have split the course into 3 stages for those not quite ready to take on the whole event. Info on relay teams is available in event details.
