The S2S Supreme Course
The event begins at the Westport Plaza & Castlecourt Hotel Resort.
Stage 1 Participants will run up Distillery Road on to the new Greenway and follow the Greenway to Westport Quay. (4km)
Stage 2 The 1st Transition Point is at Roman Island there you change on to your bike and follow the road out via the coast to Murrisk (8k) to Croagh Patrick car park. ( Transition 2)
Stage 3 Changing shoes again to climb Croagh Patrick (5k) which is widely known and we are using the most used side for the race. At the top we urge that you take care on the descent as the loose shale is dangerous and numerous accidents have occurred there in the past.
Stage 4 Returning to Croagh Patrick Car Park to pick up your bike and take on the rolling hills. Taking the main road to Louisburgh turning at Kilsallagh for Drummin where the steep climb of the Maum awaits you; recommended gearing on your bike is 39×27 its 25% in places, through Drummin village and on to Liscarney where it’s all downhill back to Roman Island transition point.
Stage 5 4 km run , returning to Westport Town via the Greenway, finishing at the Fairgreen overlooking the Mall River.
THE S2S SPIRIT COURSE
The S2S Spirit Course is similar with the same first run and bike but the hike up Croagh Patrick only goes as far as the ridge (3k) and then descends to the car park leaving out the torches Cone. The Cycle home is also reduced to 8km.

Westport Sea 2 Summit would like to share the ethos of care on Croagh Patrick.
•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.
•We would like to acknowledge and thank the landowners in their support for the Sea2Summit Adventure
• We acknowledge that Croagh Patrick is a place of pilgrimage and must be respected by all competitors
• We are asking all competitors to by all means familiarise themselves with the route but we respectfully ask that they do not to use the mountain as a training ground in the build up to the events
• Westport Sea 2 Summit would like to promote an environmental policy on the mountain ; on our website we will encourage competitors to take your litter with you, “What you bring up you must bring down!”
