The event will be a 5 day nonstop adventure race for mixed sex teams of 4. Including running / trekking, mountain biking, kayaking, canyoneering and some rope work. The event will run from the 16th – 23rd August 2016.
We have designed a race format and course that will allow all the teams to finish. The race will be achievable yet challenging to all levels. We are not planning to design the hardest adventure race ever, in fact quite the opposite; we want it to be fun, interesting and an accessible event. Every night we will provide access to warm and dry shelter.
08.00am Marshal Briefing
during the event teams will be completing a short blog about things are going which will be posted to their profile.

Event Registration / HQ
This event is being hosted at the Killarney Conference Centre on the outskirts of Killarney. With an onsite restaurant and plenty of space to sort out kit this is a top location to be hosting the ITERA Expedition Race.
Please book and pay direct with Flesk Camping.
There will be a large hall available which is secure and will be the ideal place to sort out your kit prior to the event.. unless of course its sunny. Post event you should be aware that unless you have arrived by public transport we have no storage facilities for kit and you will need to secure bike / boats etc on your own vehicles.
We are currently investigating the use of a small room for the storage of a small bag (5kg) for each competitor for any valuables you don't wish to carry during the event. Those arriving by public transport please contact us so we can assist with any transfers from the train station and arrange for storage of excess kit during the event.
Before you email us - we don't do discounts. EVERY team will have paid the price advertised - the exception being any specially selected media team. However many of us have travelled overseas to events and know the difficulties in arranging the logistics of getting from the port of entry to the event.
For the ITERA event we are keen to assist any teams with transport of equipment and themselves once they arrive in Ireland. Please contact us with your plans and we will see how we can best assist.
