One of the country’s most extreme fitness events is coming to Dublin

There are extreme fitness challenges, and then there are the Gaelforce events: hard-core races which involve the likes of cycling, hiking, running, and kayaking over dozens of kilometres. 

In short, we describe them as: NOT for the faint-hearted (or anyone who isn't outrageously fit).

Up until this point the brand encompassed of: Gaelforce West, Connemara Adventure Challenge,Turf Warrior Challenge, Gaelforce North, the Bray Cliff Run, and the Great Fjord Swim.

And now – Gaelforce is FINALLY coming to Dublin. Yes, on February 18 more than 1,000 brave souls will kayak, cycle and run their way through a challenging course in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains.

There are two distances to choose from: 29km or else 49km (assuming you're feeling a bit mad). 

Competitors will cycle to Bohernabreena Reservoir from Tallaght Stadium, where they will then face a kayak on the reservoir. From there they will run over various terrain, up Kippure Mountainwith its panoramic views of Dublin and Wicklow, before returning to the finish line at Tallaght Stadium.
