Hell of the West Triathlon, Kilkee. < Back
Time: 9:30 am - 6:00 pm
The Hell of the West Triathlon is an Olympic Distance Triathlon which is up and running since 1985 making it one of the longest continuously running triathlons in Ireland and in the World.
Hell of the West starts with a 1500m swim in the relatively calm waters of Kilkee’s horse shoe bay, followed by a 44km cycle against the winds of West Clare and a 10km hilly run along the rugged coastline of Loop Head. Not for the faint hearted, come and see men and women challenge their endurance ability in one of the toughest events on the peninsula.
The triathlon is designated as both a National and Super Series race.
