A multi-discipline adventure race consisting of mountain biking/road cycling, canoeing and hill running.
Rás na Ríochta is a multi-discipline adventure race consisting of mountain biking/road cycling, canoeing and hill running.
This testing adventure race is open to those over 18 years of age. There will be three courses, the first for the more experienced adventure racer covering up to 50km approximately; the second course will involve exactly the same disciplines but over a shorter distance; and the third will place a greater emphasis on the cycling section. One of the unique attractions of this adventure race is the extent of the off-road mountain biking, the scenic nature of the terrain and the physical challenge of the rugged Kerry landscape.
Adventure racing in Ireland is a growing sport and Kerry offers the perfect setting as the backdrop to these gruelling races, with its mountains, lakes and Atlantic coastline. Whether it is hill running over Carrantuohill, kayaking on the Killarney lakes or mountain biking along the Kerry way, there is no disputing that Kerry offers a great diversity for any adventure racer.
