Hotel Newport

Newport is the hub of the Great Western Greenway and is the perfect location to have a Spring break. Forest trails at Wild Nephin, explore the back-roads of  Clewbay and if it's safe cycling routes you are after then the Greenway to Achill island or Westport are great options. There are so many hidden gems to be discovered that a weekend is not enough. 

The event will have timed gravel sectors, each sector will be clearly marked with Strava start and Finish, you dont have to race these sectors but the option is there to race your buddies if you like! 



The fastest Male and Female over all the timed sectors  will be the crowned the  winner. (Grinduro style)

(Not necessarily the first back to the finish line)

Depending on numbers we may have category prizes for the fastest Male/Female in each category or over certain sectors.


A really great gravelly day out... Sure bring the family and make a weekend of it..

Raceface events is thrilled to be working with Mondello24 Cycle and Donegal Ultra 555 for the Ultimate Ultra Trilogy.A new chapter for Cycling Ireland #ultracycling Community.The Ultimate Ultra Cycling TrilogyMondello24 is delighted to be teaming up with our friends at the Wild Mayo Ultra and the Donegal Ultra 555 to create the ultimate annual endurance challenge - Ireland's Ultra Cycling Trilogy. That's three races in three different counties offering three different cycling experiences. Kicking off with the scenic Wild Mayo Ultra on May 12, riders will then have plenty of time to recover ahead of a very different 24-hour experience that is Mondello24 on June 24. After recovering from riding around Ireland’s only international motor racing circuit, the trilogy will then take you to the hills of Donegal with the legendary Donegal Ultra 555 on August 11. Any rider/team completing the Trilogy will be presented with a mounted certificate as recognition of their achievement from the three race organisers. This certificate will not only look well on the wall of your pain cave or office but is also sure to start many a great conversation about your efforts in the saddle. By creating Ireland's Ultra Cycling Trilogy, the race organisers hope this collaboration will help raise the profile of ultra cycling in Ireland and hopefully inspire more to come and push themselves to discover new limits.Cycling Ireland | Mondello Park | Race Around Ireland | Sport Ireland | S T I C K Y B O T T L E .
