Ireland West Duathlon Series postponed

Due to the uncertainties caused by the pandemic and the implications for us as organisers to run a safe event, we have taken the decision to postpone the series over the winter months. 
We would like to thank all our supporters, sponsors and most of all the participants.
Stay tuned for some very exciting news about new events for the West of Ireland.
