Killarney Adventure Race started 5 years ago and has grown to be the biggest adventure race in the world of its type. Now 2,500 people descend on Killarney at the start of October each year and compete in a variety of distances from 25km to a monster 70km.  Amphibia has sponsored this race for the

I love tough triathlons! When you aren’t that fast it helps if the course and/or conditions are tough and sticky to slow others down.  Ive competed in some of the toughest triathlons in the UK and Ireland over the past few years but now i can bear testament to the fact that the toughest of
