Let's redefine "epic." The 2nd edition of Challenge Galway (Ireland) will sweep you up in a landscape and race atmosphere that will propel you to new heights. The long-course 140.6 mile event in late June (likely June 24) includes a sea swim in a protected inlet, a bike ride that takes in The Burren and Cliffs of Moher (UNESCO Global Geopark), climbs the famous switchbacks of "Corkscrew Hill" and rounds out with a fairly flat 4-loop run course through the spirited streets of Galway.
We offer a comprehensive 5-night race slot travel package that will make racing this event smooth and seamless. We include our signature athlete concierge services, round trip airport transfers from Dublin or Shannon, 4-star accommodations, swim, full bike, and run course tours, and planned training activities during your stay.
As part of Challenge Tours and the Official Travel Partner of the Americas for Challenge Family, RaceQuest Travel provides special access to this race with guaranteed race slot entry available. Our welcoming hosts at Challenge Galway are eager to share the magic of this breathtaking course with you.
In addition to the 140.6-mile race, Challenge Galway offers the "half" distance of 70.3 miles. It's ideally suited for your team or club!
