1. A beautiful swim

The swim is in the gorgeous Callow Lake. Highly scenic and will be a great temperature by August the 7th (you’ll still need a wet-suit!)

2. A tough but gorgeous cycle

As well as experiencing first hand the beauty of County Mayo, the climb up the Windy Gap will test the best cyclists.

You won’t get much chance to experience the view from the top (see below) as you will then be plummeting at speed into Castlebar (take care!):
