Online registration will open 1 month in advance of each event, we do not accept entries on the day. Entries close 1 week prior to each event, on Friday at 10pm. The entry fee is €57.50, which includes lunch from ‘The Organic Kitchen’. When you enter, you must input your valid Cycling Ireland licence number or else purchase an event licence for €20. Finally, you can select your race depart time from the drop down menu. This is the time you leave the race village to take on the course!

The Course

The course is approximately 15km long and will have 3 mainly downhill timed stages. You can ride the stages in any order, any number of times within the notified time limit, typically 4.5 hours. The liaison between stages is not timed so you can ride at your leisure and catch up with your pals. The stages are technical and steep. Please note this event is not suitable for beginners. 

Timing Chips

Simply arrive to registration ‘ready to ride’, 5 minutes before your race depart time. You receive your bike number plate and timing chip which is worn on your wrist. You will receive your results print out as soon as you finish. Results are also published online.

Youth Riders

All youth riders (ages 12 and 13) need to be assessed by Cycling Ireland for suitability before they can partake in the event. Details of these evaluation days will be announced on our social media channels periodically.

At the Event

There is a good local coffee provider at each event, along with a pizza truck or similar catering provider. Toilets are provided. Our MC will keep you informed and entertained with music and interviews with the riders throughout the day. Results are displayed live and the awards ceremony takes place at approximately 4pm each day.
