2005 XC Marathon Champs

XC Marathon Champs
Ireland’s first mountain bike marathon event is happening on September 18th at Carlingford, Co. Louth. Covering 60km off road this is more of a day out than a race. The route will be well marked so you can take your time. Sign on is at 10am in the Carlingford Community Centre, with a mass start at 11am. Get in touch if you want to come along.
