2. New Mixed Relay Offer
In keeping with the new initiative from the BTF and for the push by the ITU to get Mixed Relay into the 2020 Olympics we are offering MIxed Relay as an option at Lough Cutra Castle (Galway), Cholmondeley Castle (Cheshire) and Castle Howard (Yorkshire) in 2017. This exciting format involves 2 females and 2 males competing over a super shortened triathlon as a relay making for exciting race and viewing for all concerned. We have also extended the format to families and children as well. All racing to take place on closed road circuits on or around the estates from which we operate. See the following link for a BTF article on the concept – https://www.britishtriathlon.org/news/mixed-relays-on-track-for-olympic-inclusion_6332
3. Club Championships Offer
We have had a number of clubs hold their club championships (also BUCS and Interservices) at our races over the years and would like to extend this offer to your club. With all events being held over 2 days, stunning castle backdrops, camping on offer as well as children’s racing and entertainment, why not make this a whole club outing for the weekend? Additional discounts on offer for multiple racers from the same club as well as individual club waves, bespoke prize giving ceremonies and option on a club tent in the event village.
4. Triathlon Ireland Super Series
Lough Cutra Castle has been awarded the first leg of the Triathlon Ireland Super Series. The series caters for the top male and female athletes in the country (CAT 1, circa 150 males and 100 females) providing the most competitive environment for athletes to race head to head. Triathlon Ireland launched the Super Series in 2015, modelled on the British Super Series, French GP Series and USAT Super Series and thanks to the support of athletes, clubs and race organisers it’s been a fantastic spectacle in just its first year. The race is due to take place first off at 8.00am on Saturday 27 May.
