Ireland West Promotion Group are bringing the World of Ultra cycling to Mayo.
The course is plotted around the Mayo coast-line and border, passing through most of the county’s iconic beauty spots and taking you on a historic tour of what Mayo has to offer.
The shorter 300k event is for those new to Ultra, the course still takes in quite a few Mayo icons but only on the North and West of the county, the route still bangs a big punch with 3,500m of elevation.
On either course you will battle your own demons screaming at you to give up, the never ending windy roads, the freshness of the sea air, the sheep traffic, the physical and mental challenge, not to mention what Mother Nature will throw at you. If you are lucky she will shine her sun on you but she won’t make it easy, that’s for sure!
We hope the Wild Mayo Ultra will be to Mayo what the Ironman is to Kona in Hawai’i! We know this event has the capacity to achieve this; we have the most amazing roads, the most unbelievable scenery and the Wild Atlantic Way!
We all know that cycling in this County always has that X Factor which is unexplainable!
Cycling is changing, cyclists are now looking for something different, something special, something that will test them more than anything else has ever tested them before and that nobody they know has ever achieved.
