Race Around Ireland 2017

On 27th August 2017, the Veloroos joined cyclists from all over the world at the Race Around Ireland. In the shadow of the imposing Trim Castle, County Meath, the Veloroos lined up on the start line of a non-stop race around the 2,200km coastline of Ireland!

This challenging event threw everything at the team and their support crew, 23,000m of climbing, complicated navigation, plenty of wind, rain, and testing conditions that ensured the event lived up to it’s reputation as one of the toughest endurance cycle events in Europe. The Veloroo’s team of 4, were the first Australian team to enter this race. They won the female category by 9 hours, placing 4th overall, and smashing the women’s course record by 19 hours.

The Veloroos finished the race in 72 hours, 47 minutes.  Their average speed across the entire country was  30.42 km per hour!  They broke the female team of 4 record and had an absolute blast along the way.
