Gaelforce West is the largest one day adventure race in Europe. It is the one you strive for and the one that will keep you coming back to try and master it. From complete adventure novices to honed athletes there is a place for everyone in Gaelforce West and we strive to make it accessible to all. There are no losers with Gaelforce West, only finishers.
Beginning on a crescent-shaped white sand beach in the dawn light you will make your way through 67km of the most demanding and magnificent areas of Connemara and Mayo, on foot, by kayak and by bike.
The old Famine greenway along Killary Fjord, the summit of Croagh Patrick, the crest of Drummin hill and the final descent into historic Westport quay will all carve their place in your heart.
So start training today and we will see you in the west in August!
If you feel you are not at the required level for Gaelforce West this year take a look at the Connemara Adventure Challenge to start you on your way.
We have all the information you need on registering, training, gear and the course. For those of you not sure if adventure races are for you read our First Timers page to find the reassurance you need.
