Info from CUH Charity... Further info: The CUH Charity Triathlon will be held on 27 May 2023 to raise funds for Cork University and Cork University Maternity Hospital.

The money will go where it is most needed with the aim to provide a wide range of life-changing and life-saving equipment, facilities and services for patients attending both hospitals.

This event is the only triathlon to take place in beautiful Farran Wood. With both long and short races available, you can enter as a solo participant, or in a team of three.

The fundraising target this year is €500 per participant.

The event venue is at Farran Woods which is about 18kms west of Cork City or 10kms from Ballincollig.

The swim takes place in the lake by the National Rowing Centre, the run is within Farran Wood and the cycle route is shown below...

The cycle route goes from Farran Wood to Coachford... to Carrigdrohid... and then under the new Macroom Bypass. It then returns on the main N22 before taking a left and onto a quieter country road back to the woods. No huge hills but plenty of small pulls.
