Beara Charity Cycle 2016 has been announced for the 16th of July. What makes the Beara Charity Cycle so great is that it is organised fully by volunteers and is a non profit event, all of the money made by the participants paying their 50€ to take part goes to four local charities.
This is the sixth year that the event is being held and over the years this event has succeeded in raising 65000€ for local charities. The participants always have a great time and the routes are spectacular.
Watch a short video here of route two which shows some of the spectacular scenery.

Lehanmore Triathlon was such a cool event, that was held in such a great friendly family atmosphere. The last of the events to be held at the Lehanmore festival after a few days of activities. The way the participants performed was absolutely brilliant and great fun was had by all. I think the only drugs involved were the pints drank afterwards by the few competitors of an age old enough to consume a pint…
The race covered a route on the Wild Atlantic Way very close to the famous Dursey Island and its cable car. I am sure even Sonia O’Sullivan would have enjoyed this “ParkTri” type event and should sign up for the second one coming up in 2016
