Wild Mayo Ultra Cycle
Location: The Mariner Westport
Date: 24 - 24 Jul
Join us in Westport on July 24th for the newest adventure race in town - Ultra Cycling.
This event is not for the faint-hearted; it really is "Ultra" tough. Once the clock starts, competitors must negotiate 650 kilometres of Mayo roads, mountains, boreens and, in doing so, climb over 6500m of elevation.
The course which starts in Westport has been strategically plotted around the Mayo coastline and border and passes through most of the county's iconic beauty spots, taking the participant on a historic tour of all that Mayo has to offer.
There is also a shorter 300 km event is for those new to Ultra. The course still takes in quite a few iconic Mayo beauty spots, but only on the North and West of the county. The route still bangs a big punch, however, with 3500m of elevation.
Wild Mayo Ultra has partnered up with The Mariner, Westport’s newest boutique hotel. Located on Mill Street, in the very centre of Westport Town the hotel’s prime location provides the perfect base from which to experience all that the County has to offer.
Options: Two distances: solo, pairs or in a relay team of 4 persons: 650km or 300km
