On a fabulous sunny 8th November morning, over 1700 athletes took the ultimate challenge of Westport Sea2Summit. The adventure race is a unique event based in the adventure capital of Ireland, Westport. The race  incorporates all the thrills that Westport has to offer, Croagh Patrick, Clew Bay, the Sheaffry Mountains and the new Greenway.

Sea 2 Summit is a fantastic experience, made by you, the competitors, our brilliant volunteer marshals, the support organisations and the support of the local community and businesses of Westport. A huge thank you to you all for making it such a great success.

Congratulations to all competitors!

Westport Sea2Summit is organised and run by the Westport Plaza & Castlecourt Hotel Resort under the guidance of Race Director, Paul O ‘Brien of Boot Camp West.

There will be two separate races with three categories in both which will include a mix of road running, cycling, and a mountain hike. It will finish with a small adventure obstacle course and short sea run which consists of a 100m dash across a shore line. The water depth will be no more than two feet deep.

The Sea2Summit Spirit will cater for the participant that wants a challenge but has not taken part in adventure racing before. Duration time for the fastest will be 2.5 – 3hrs.

The Sea2Summit Supreme is for the participant who wants an extra challenge. The hike up and down the front face of Croagh Patrick (Murrisk) will hurt the legs and the back breaking ramps at the Maum climb will definitely test your bike and quad muscles.
Duration time for the elite athletes will be around 3.5hrs.

In these two races, there are 3 categories to choose from:

  • Advanced
  • Intermediate
  • Beginner

You will be asked when registering which category you would like to be in. We ask people to enter themselves into a category so that they will be competing alongside competitors of the same standard.
