The annual World’s End Triathlon returns to Limerick on Saturday, August 20 with proceeds going towards Castleconnell Boat Club.

This young, fun and testing event is growing in popularity and this year promises to be even better with improvements to the run course.

The World’s End Sprint Triathlon is the first event of the day, beginning at 12 pm. This event is open to everyone and is targeted at seasoned competitors.

The World’s End Sprint will start with a 750-meter swim in the River Shannon just in front of the Boat Clubhouse. After emerging from the water, bikes will be handed out on the lawn alongside the clubhouse.

There will be a 22km cycle course, beginning on the old Dublin Road. The route will move eastwards to Birdhill before travelling to Castleconnell, where compeditors will complete a 5km run around the outskirts of the village before finishing up at the community hall.

For competitors wishing to try the triathlon out on a less intense course, there will be a World’s End Try-A-Tri at 12:30 pm which will feature a 175-metre swim in the River Shannon and the same cycling and running routes.

An early-bird special entry cost is available now for just €40. If you wish to compete in the Worlds End Triathlon but are not a member of Triathlon Ireland, a One Day Membership (ODM) is required.
