The Cavankayakarun Challenge 2015

This unique fun event starts at Gallonray House , Cootehill with a 5k run/walk, followed by a 1k kayak race, then run a short distance to the Bike Transition area and finishing with a 15k cycle.

The emphasis is on FUN, so whether you are an experienced athlete looking for a serious challenge or a total beginner looking for a bit of ‘craic’ then you will not want to miss this event.

The race is open to individuals or if you feel all three events may be too much … why not enter a relay team or three to share the load?

This route takes you on to the Shercock-Canningstown Road going towards Canningstown. At Canningstown turn right for Cootehill and follow the rolling Drumlins to Maudabawn turning right for the Co-op and back to Gallonray (Start/Finish).

It is a hilly 5km run, with the infamous Peppers Bray signalling a long downhill to the lake and Transition 1.

The kayak course is 1km, a long loop of Barnagrow Lake returning to Transition 1. You will be assisted out of your kayak and life jacket and must run a further 400m to Transition 2. You will have a choice of sit on or sit in kayaks. It is recommended that you get some experience paddling a sit in kayak prior to the race. You must put on your helmet prior to un-racking your bike. You will not be allowed to leave Transition 2 unless your race number matches your bike number. The Cavan Kayakarun Challenge Bike section is 15kms long.
