Full size


It’s the one, the only, “Junior Beast of the East Triathlon 2018”, it’s back and it is going to be better than ever before!  This year we we are back to our now legendary race venue at the seaside town of Greystones in Co Wicklow and it will be AMAZING!


We have created a stunning and improved course that is easy for you to get to, has plenty of free, close by parking and is really compact making for an amazing family experience with HUGE support for the superstars, you guys the triathletes!  Our “criterium” styled bike course means you get to lap a short course a few times driven onward by  the support of your friends, family and the admiring public of Greystones.  The run course is along the beautiful seaside promenade in Greystones above “The Cove” where you will have completed your swim in the sea.

Entries are now OPEN here on the Triathlon Ireland Website.  Simply find the event on the race calendar (scrolling down to Sunday, September 23rd) and click on the ENTER button.


The Junior Beast of the East will take place this year on Sunday, September 23rd  and as a quality assurance this is a fully sanctioned Triathlon Ireland event brought to you by Wicklow Triathlon Club Juniors.  Once again we give you a spectacular sea swim in the shelter of Ireland’s east coast at “The Cove”, Greystones.  Not only is this a super nice place to swim but it is a natural amphitheatre allowing your supporters clap and cheer and watch you all the way through your epic swim!  The bike course is on a 1km “criterium” styled lap of the scenic town of Greystones with the run along the picturesque promenade on Greystones’ Marine Road looking down on the Irish Sea below.  We really think this is just about the ultimate race course we can build for a junior race and we’re sure you’ll agree when you see it!
