A recent recce was carried out on the Trail course for our Tralee to Camp Run Event due to be held on the 19th March. Unfortunately I’m disappointed to report that large sections of the Trail have been eroded and washed away and other sections are water logged after the storms of winter.

THE DAY

Swim march

Start time is estimated to be between 11.00 and 12.00. The swim will be tide assisted again this year ensuring that everyone achieves a great time. Last year we had very happy swimmers as PB’s were smashed by many!

We have always had closed roads for the duration of the event and we anticipate having closed roads again this year.
