This year we will again offer a new element to the Lough Derg race in the form of a “try a tri”. This beginner friendly event is aimed at those new to the sport of triathlon and is suitable for all basic level athletes.

Distance:  300m Swim – 15k Bike – 3k Run

The swim takes place at the Lake front beside transition and is a lapped course between 2 markers with the water level always at chest height level and so is ideal for those who are new to open water swimming. The bike and run take place on the same route as the sprint race, only the distances are shorter.

So why not take the plunge and join us in Dromineer this June!
