Killary Gaelforce Connemara returns for its 10th year. 10 years. It says it all about this legendary day that it has stood the test of time. Full Race Breakdown

This year, the emergence and growth of the navigation/orientating styled races has been great. Total Experience are back with their annual TEAR 12/24 navigation race. Last year high ropes, archery and a plunge pool were added. We can’t wait to see what is in store this year. Full Race Breakdown

The Avantcard Blueway AR (formally Shannon Blueway AR) returns to Leitrim village after a one-year hiatus. If SUP boarding is your thing, then check this one out. Full Race Breakdown

The mighty Blackstairs AR. 3 steps, 5 steps, 7 steps. This what they call the different routes. And as the names suggest, the bigger the step count, the tougher the challenge. That’s 26.5k, 46.5k, 66.5k respectively. An excellent days racing with great atmosphere and support from the local community. Full Race Breakdown
