The Bantry Bay Adventure Race is back for 2020!

Join us on Saturday August 29th 2020 in Bantry, Co. Cork, to tackle Ireland's stunning coastal terrain.

The event will bring participants from West Cork's Whiddy Island across Bantry Bay to the Sheep's Head peninsula in a 3-leg event that will include a run (5k), kayak (1500m approx.), and cycle (22.8k approx.). 

Test yourself against West Cork's landscapes and this world-famous bay as an individual participant, or join with friends to form a relay team. This is an exciting challenge for anyone who wants to get active on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

The double kayak section of the course means that this is a test of teamwork as well as of individual ability.

The Adventure Race makes the most of the Bantry Bay Blueway adventure route and the Sheep's Head's walking and cycling trails. BBAR 2020 is an amazing opportunity for you to experience some of the most scenic places in West Cork. Don't miss out on the limited places on offer.

Competitors can choose between 8am, 9am and 10am waves (wave times here relate to ferry departure times, as catching the ferry is essential to reaching the starting line!). 

Run on Whiddy Island, kayak Bantry's famous bay, and cycle out along the Sheep’s Head peninsula before returning to Bantry for a hero's welcome!

Bantry Bay Adventure Race is a unique challenge and a great way of raising funds for three important organisations that support local communites: Mercy Hospital Service, Bumbleance and Bantry Inshore Rescue Association.

Please note there is a strict age restriction: all participants must be aged 18 or over.
