This year Cork is the host of the iconic Ironman Triathlon event. The triathlon is heading to Ireland’s Ancient East in Youghal on the 23rd June 2019. Ironman Ireland will showcase the beauty of County Cork and connect you to the heart of Ireland’s cultural heritage.
The challenging event starts by entering the sea at Claycastle beach in Youghal for a 3.8k swim, followed by a gruelling 180k Cycle along the rolling hillls, coastline and villages of East Cork. This is all finished with a marathon run in the streets of ancient 5th century town of Youghal before they’ll cross the iconic Ironman finish-line.
Each competitor that crosses the finish line will become an IRONMAN.
