International triathlon held in stunning castle grounds. 7 different races for adults and children including new Gauntlet Middle Distance (half iron) race for 2014. Festival atmosphere, live music & fun!

Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon is a triathlon with a difference! Not only is it held at a castle, but it is a family festival to boot! The event is also part of the international Castle Triathlon series (England, France and Ireland).

This event offers a race for everyone with three junior races (8-15 year olds), three standard adult races and the new Gauntlet Middle Distance (half iron) race for 2014. There is even a ladies-only start in the Super Sprint distance to avoid any pushing and shoving!

The swim is in the beautiful Castle Lake and the run and part of the cycle are within the glorious grounds. Everyone is welcome to come in to the normally private Castle estate and enjoy the day. Expect a festival atmosphere, kid's attractions, a piper in the battlements and live music afterwards in the Castle Yard.

Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon is a Triathlon Ireland sanctioned event and is one of the most scenic and the friendliest triathlons in the country. Event takes place from 8am to 4pm.
