Ennis Duathlon 2020

This year the Ennis Duathlon will take place on Sunday March 8th.

It will be based at Barefield National School, Ennis, V95 FD28, again for what has been a very successful event on the Triathlon Ireland race calendar for the past number of years.

Online entries are now closed but you can register on race morning between 10.30 - 11.30 at Hassetts Bar.

  • Entry fee €20 for Triathlon Ireland members.

  • Non Triathlon Ireland members can enter for €25 on race morning (this will include a one day license).


Same route as last year - 4k run, 14k cycle, followed by the 4k run again.
The race is open to anyone. Race essentials for the day are runners, a bicycle and a bike helmet.  All entrants will be provided with timing chips that will give split results for the cycle leg, both run legs and transitions.

Is there parking on site?

There is plenty of parking at Hassett's Bar (registration).

Do I need a license to race?

You must have a Triathlon Ireland (TI) race license or a One Day License (ODL) in order to race. An ODL plus race entry can be purchased at registration for €25.


What's the route like?

The 4km run route is mainly flat but with some rolling hills in the middle section, see https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2393404684.

The 14km bike route for the most part is flat and fast and on good road surface with very little traffic. Plenty of hard shoulder but be careful of debris from recent storms.

Can I sign up on race morning?

Yes you can sign up at registration in Hassett's bar between 10.30 and 11.30am but try to get there early to give yourself time to set up at transition.

Is this an elite race?

Absoluetly not. This race is open to all levels from beginners looking to get in to multi-sport, to PB chasers, to elite. Due to the short distances and relaxed and friendly nature of the event, it is particularly suited to beginners.
