Course Details

The triathlon will take be based in the centre of Clonmel.  A 750m swim down the Suir, followed by a 20km out and back cycle, and finish with a 5km run down the Suir Blueway.

See route preview below.

750m Swim preview

Our swim course for the 2023 Triathlon was as follows. 

Starting at the Clonmel Rowing Club, you will swim 750m downstream in fast flowing River Suir, veering right to swim under the bridge at Suir Island and exiting just at Lady Blessingtons Weir to transition in the Old Bridge Car Park.

We will have plenty of safety and support crew on the river to ensure you are navigating the course correctly, and kept safe.

Huge kudos to Laurence and George, who braved the cold water last October to test the route and to Neil for his drone footage! 


☆ Leaving Suir Island car park, you will make a left turn to bring you to the Raheen Road junction.

☆ Take a right and follow along the Old Dunagrvan Road.

☆ At the roadabout before Applegreen continue straight through (first exit).

☆ Straight throughout the roundabout after Applegreen (second exit). You are now on the R665/Wood Road.

☆ Continue along the Wood Road before you cycle over Knocklofty Bridge.

☆ Follow the road all the way along, taking the bend to begin the climb up Knocklofty Hill.

☆ Continue to follow the road to the turnaround point at Knocknagree.

☆ Cycle back to the starting point. 

Our course has something to suit everyone... it is primarily fast and flat, with the exception of a short climb up Knocklofty Hill. After Knocklofty Hill, it becomes a little bit undulating, but remember, for every up, there is a down!!!

The course will also have very experienced marshals guiding and encouraging you along the way.

5km Run preview

The run course is an out and back. Note, however, the finish line is approximately 700m from transition in New Quay Car park.

Race numbers must be worn on the front during the Run.

Leaving transition, you will take a right turn along The Quay footpath until you meet the Blueway.  Please stay on the footpath at all times, as traffic will be approaching along The Quay – remember, the road is NOT closed. 

When you reach the Blueway, you will pass the finish line on your left.  At this point you must stay to the right, and continue under the bridge (shown as Run Out below) and re-join the Blueway tow path.  From there continue until the turnaround point at approximately 2.85km.  Then it is a straight run back to the finish line which is in the New Quay Car park.
