750 meter swim, 20 Kilometer bike, 5 Kilometer run (Appendix A, B & C provides a map of each part of the race route).

Registration Process:

Registration will take place in the co-op hall on the evening of the 15th July 2011 between 7 pm and 9 pm, and on the July 16th between 8.30 am and 9.30 am.

TI membership cards will be checked at registration and one-day licenses where required will be collected. All competitors will be required to sign the disclaimer and a swim proficiency declaration at registration.

Swim course:

The swim will take place in the river Shannon starting on the Connaught side of the river and exiting on the Leinster side 750 metres downstream. Details of the waves and start times will be included in the race briefing document and on the race notice board at registration.

Transition Area:

The transition area will be on the eastern river bank on the grass area between the duck pond and the small harbour. Competitors will exit the water via the ramp provided on the eastern bank of the river. Bike racks will be numbered and the competitors will proceed to their bike location and head out of transition over the timing mat onto the bike route.

Stewards will be on hand to provide directions to the competitors.

Bike course:

The bike route will take the competitor west along the N63 across the river turning north onto the R371. From here it is a straight out and back course returning back to the transition area via the same route.

Competitors must have a road worthy bike and wear a hard shell helmet.  When the competitor is entering the transition area to set up their transition space, they will be required to demonstrate that their bikes are roadworthy e.g. by spinning wheels and pulling brakes.

This is time trial cycling so drafting rules will apply.

Stewards will alert competitors to dangers and descents and these will also be set out in the race briefing document which will be made available on the event website and in the pre-race briefing.

The Run route:

On completing the bike section, competitors will dismount the bike at the ‘dismount’ line before entering the transition area. Helmets must remain on and fastened until the bike is racked.

Competitors will exit the transition area directly opposite the entrance and run around by the small harbour following the signs towards the woods running along the marked trail and exiting by turning right onto the Rathcline road where they will run for approximately 2.0 Kilometres to the turn about cone. They will then follow the road back to the village turning left at the junction of the Rathcline road, N63 and R392 running down along the main street and into the car park area.
