WELL DONE TO ALL COMPETITORS!
The horrendous weather on Friday certainly didn’t intimidate the competitors and thankfully the most fantastic racing conditions broke through on the morning for over 2,000 competitors for what is the last and the largest adventure race of the season. Congratulations to all competitors and a huge thank you to all who helped made Westport Sea2Summit 2018 such a fantastic day!

Westport Sea2summit is working with the Croagh Patrick Stakeholders Group to protect the heritage of the mountain. We are reducing the number of our competitors taking part in the Supreme Event in order to reduce the traffic on the Cone where the main erosion is occurring.
Westport Sea 2 Summit took place on Saturday 10th November. 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.
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.
The Sea2Summit Spirit caters 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:
