We have been informed that, while still a largely similar to 2019’s bike course,  some updates and improvements to the entire course have been made, making it a faster overall route.  There will be a new scenic coastal section through Saleen (45km/165km)  The overall elevation is reduced from 1900m to 1700m.  Also there will be more toilet facilities available on the course.  Click Bike Route for Map

A  new run course is also on the map, taking in more of Youghal town and thus  creating a more atmospheric run experience.  Great for supporters and boy do we have supporters!  Click Run Course for Map

IRONMAN IRELAND – Cork Race Route 2020 has not yet been finalised.   When same is established we will have it available here for your perusal here.  Watch this space!

In the meanwhile we have maintained the 2019 Race Route below – for your practice purposes.   Good luck and enjoy.   Cork is so lucky to have been chosen as the first county ever to host a full IRONMAN ……and…… luckier still to have Youghal as its host town.  Be sure to come out and cheer on all those brave athletes.

Below are details of the 2019 race route.
