Body are holding their annual Puck Warrior Duathlon. This is a great fun event,
challenging to all fitness levels.
This is a time
chipped race and consists of a 5km Run, 15km Cycle & a 5km Run, this can be
entered as an individual or team of two or three in the
surrounds of the amazing Kerry countryside.
Year after year, the annual Puck Warriors Duathlon in Killorglin has well over 100 entrants taking to the roads by foot and by bike on the Saturday morning of the race.
Hosted by 'A Fit Body Gym' at the Laune Rangers' clubhouse, the event attracts an eclectic mix of entrants – from the seasoned campaigner to the first timer – and it was certainly no exception this year.
"I was delighted with the entries on the day
and every year gets better and better, particularly the high numbers of gym
members and first time entrants which shows that many more people are getting
involved in exercise," organiser and gym manager, Áine Fitzgerald,
"People are starting to get out and do stuff and it shows you don't have to have been an athlete your whole life. There seems to be a general push for fitness nationwide thanks to people like Ray D'arcy and Operation Transformation and we're definitely seeing that at a local level," she added.
"We have a big local contingent and there is a special prize for gym members as so many enters every year."
Several relay teams take part in the event which includes two five kilometre runs along the old Glenbeigh Road, sandwiched by a 15k cycle via Cromane and Tullug.
Refreshments, hot Showers & ice baths will be available at the A Fit Body Facility after the race and Bed & breakfast accommodation can be arranged.
We recognise that regular exercise makes you mentally alert, increases work productivity, gives you more energy and enhances your quality of life.
Our highly qualified instructors will make fitness FUN!
Let us help you look and feel your best. Hope to See you all there for a challenging & fun filled race !
