Adventure enthusiasts from all over the world are set to descend on Killarney, Co Kerry, Ireland's adventure capital, for the Helly Hansen Killarney Adventure Race on October 5.
More than 2,000 brave adventurers will compete in an adrenaline-packed day of running, cycling and kayaking across some of the most dramatic and breathtaking scenery in Ireland.
Highlights include the McGillycuddy Reeks, Black Valley, Moll's Gap and Torc and Mangerton mountains.
The race was voted '2011 Event of the Year' by Ireland's leading outdoor and adventure sports publication, Outsider Magazine.
This year's event promises to be bigger and better, with an adventure expo taking place in the INEC Killarney and fun for all the family throughout the weekend.
Killarney is buzzing with anticipation as the entire event is to be filmed for a 30-minute TV programme promoting adventure tourism in the region.
There are three different route options to suit all levels of fitness. More details are available online at www.killarneyadventurerace.ie.
