There's a wee bit of the Irish Iron distance in all of us

Posted Dec 09 2008 9:03pm

A new Irish iron distance race draws on Irish mythology for inspiration.

Introducing Éireman 23rd August 2009
Location is Courtown Harbour, Co. Wexford, Ireland.
Entry limit 1,500 - now OPEN

We have done something quite unique. We have incorporated Irish Mythology and Triathlon together to create this unique race.

The winner of the Male & Female race will be 'crowned'. Yes, they will be crowned in a lavish ceremony at the finish line by Druids and be called Éireman 2009. You'll have to see it to believe it!

4 races including:

Long distance - 2.4m swim, 112m bike, 26.2m run
Middle distance - 1.2m swim, 56m bike 13.1m run
INTRO - Team of 3 - 6 covering the Long Distance
Éireman Warrior Kids race (22nd August)

Courtown Harbour is on the east coast of Ireland.
2 hrs from Dublin Airport and 1 hr from Rosslare Europort.

This course has potential to be very fast.... The swim is in a sheltered bay. The cycle is on CLOSED roads. This closed road is a two yr old Duel Carriageway in mint condition. There are no major hills at all. Strong cyclists will eat this up. The run is flat and scenic. It starts off through an old Irish wood, takes in some country roads and then around a neighbouring town (Gorey). 

This could be just the course for a PB!!!

All the Facilities from the BIG races you'd expect will be onhand (and maybe more) to make this a memorable race

Hope to see some of you guys over there.

'Next Summer for the first time in nearly 1,000 years someone is going to be crowned Éireman....'

This will all make sense if you check out the website

With Regards
The Éireman Team
