Hardman Skellig Coast Triathlon
July 25, 2020
The swim will begin at the slipway in front of the village, it will be a one lap triangular course.
The cycle takes place on a very challenging route, leaving Waterville over the climb of Coomaciste, into Sneem and heads towards Molls Gap. At Blackwater turn left over the climb of Ballaghbeama, following a very fast decent you will then go over the climb of Ballaghisheen. Following another very steep decent, the road is mainly flat through Drommid and back to Waterville.
After the challenging cycle, the run is a very flat four lap out and back route along the promenade. The finish line is in the green area in the middle of the village.
