The Double Olympic

The longest and toughest of the TriAthy races. "The Double" is a great race for those taking on longer triathlon challenges. Endurance is tested and most conquer this great distance. Matches closely to a Half-Iron distance with the exception of a much longer swim.

3,000m Swim

The challenging 3,000m Swim takes place in the River Barrow. There are 3 turns to navigate and swimmers take the current as follows: 900m upriver, 600m downriver, 600m upriver and a final 900m downriver.

80km Cycle

The cycle consists of 2 x 40km laps running to the south of Athy. Approx 70% of the course is on wide closed roads, with about 30% traversing a more technical section close to Kilkea Castle.

20km Run

The Run Course involves 3 full laps of a 4.83km circuit to the South of Athy followed by a partial 4th lap of 5.5km which diverts across the River Barrow towards the Finishing area. About 60% of the course is on paved road, and 40% is on riverside track.
