Setanta Triathlon is delighted to host the popular Blackrock triathlon along the coastline of County Louth in the town of Blackrock.

This Blackrock event is suited to both beginners and experienced racers alike. For those starting out, swimmers are never out of their depth and this is a major advantage for nervous swimmers. The focus is very much on fun and enjoyment for all who want to try a triathlon and whose objective is simply to cross the line on the main street in Blackrock.

In the 18 years that the triathlon has been run in Blackrock, there have been hundreds of people who can count Blackrock as their maiden triathlon. Indeed, many of these have progressed to longer triathlon distances including half-ironman and ironman races.
