Delphi Tri-Event

Saturday, April 14

Join us at Delphi Resort in April for a fun-fuelled weekend of adventure in the great outdoors! Located on the borders of Galway and Mayo, Delphi Resort is surrounded by rugged beauty and captivating wilderness.

The Delphi Tri-Event is a fun, challenging endurance event hosted by Delphi Resort. The event is designed as a taster event for aspiring tri-athletes, or as a fun, multi-sport challenge in its own right.

Participants will undertake:

1. A 250m swimming segment
2. A 20km cycling segment
3. A 5km running segment

On this sprint style event, you’ll swim 250m in Killary Fjord, cycle 20km through the stunning Doolough Valley, and run 5km on off-road forest trails, before returning back to the resort for refreshments.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a timed event. Participants may complete the event at their own pace.
