Now in it’s eight year and taking place in 20 European Countries, Ocean Lava was founded by the legendary Kenneth Gasque of Ironman Lanzarote fame. Focusing on an ethos of athlete welfare, great value events, professional organisation and all events taking place in idyllic locations, the series culminates with the grand final at Ocean Lava Lanzarote each year.

How it works

The top three overall male and female athletes from the Hardman Triathlon Series 2017 will go forward to represent Ocean Lava Ireland in the finals in Lanzarote in 2018. (date to be decided).

Each of the six competitors will receive:

  • Free entry to the Ocean Lava Lanzarote finals
  • €250 towards flight and accommodation
  • An Ocean Lava Ireland Tri-suit
  • *Terms and conditions apply

Overall winners are decided on points.

Prize money

As well as the grand prize of representing Ocean Lava Ireland at Lanzarote we will also be putting up ten percent of the entries for each event to be divided equally between male and female participants.
