Adventure Races & Marathons in Westport
Westport Sea 2 Summit is an annual adventure race that took place on Saturday 12th November this year. This 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. Two separate races have three categories in both, which 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. 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. The results for Sea2Summit 2022 and previous iterations of the event can be found here.
