ByEmma Porter |

There are a host of great reasons to take part in Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon’s 10th anniversary event on May 28th and 29th this year, here are just some of the reasons why you should make the Castle Estate your destination race in Ireland in 2022.

IT’S LOUGH CUTRA CASTLE TRIATHLON’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY

Race Director, Brian Adcock, first visited Lough Cutra Castle in 2011 and fell in love with the place. 2012 saw the first Castle Triathlon event in Ireland and they are still going strong!

RACE COVID SAFE

Castle Triathlon first hosted a COVID safe event in September 2020. All their races in 2021 were run in line with COVID protocols, so they have a lot of experience in helping athletes to compete with peace of mind. Lough Cutra Castle 2022 will be Castle Triathlon’s 10th COVID safe race.

NEW SWIM ONLY ROUTES

The new 2.5K and 5K swim only routes in Galway will see swimmers enjoy out and back routes making for an even more memorable swim experience in the largest privately owned lake in Europe!

UPGRADED ROAD SURFACES ON CYCLE ROUTES

The Castle Triathlon team have been busy in the off season working with the relevant authorities in both Clare and Galway to get the cycle route surfaces improved.

UPGRADED RUNNING SURFACES ON RUN ROUTES

Working with the castle estate, the team have also continued with their programme of upgrading the internal estate tracks and paths so that the Deer Park loop is now both a thing of natural and running beauty to be enjoyed as you clock up the miles.

KIDS RACES CONSOLIDATED

The children’s races are now all on the same afternoon ( on the Sunday) of the race weekend and offer some of the most stunning, friendly, fun and challenging races on the junior circuit in Ireland for 2022.

FESTIVAL FUN FOR ALL

The festival side of the Lough Cutra Castle events just gets better and better with the return of Irish house band the Treblemakers, an improved trade village and delicious food concessions for athletes and spectators to enjoy as they cheer on the athletes making their way round the course.

WILD CAMPING

With a stunning campsite overlooking the castle lake what’s not to like? Hot showers and electric hook up too….why not make a weekend of it, bring the family and enjoy being home from home on the Castle Estate.

GREAT DAY OUT FOR SPECTATORS

With 22 different races going on over the weekend, a buzzing festival vibe and some of the most stunning scenery at a normally exclusively private castle, why not bring a car full of spectators too? There will be plenty to keep them occupied as you enjoy your choice of event across swim, bike and run.
