Gaelforce Turf Warrior Challenge

04th November 2017 
The Turf Warrior Challenge offers the chance to round off the season in a flurry of mud and sweat on the banks of Killary Harbour in Co. Galway. The deceptively short 10km course is packed full of climbing, swinging, leaps into the Atlantic and all kinds of other mayhem and madness. Said to be the toughest course in Ireland, it promises to test competitors' stamina, nerve and camaraderie. The fun does not end with the race. Once they have washed the mud off, all warriors are invited to the themed party in Killary Adventure Centre.
