2016 Reviewed - Standard Distance National Championships

G24Q3769

Hell of the West hosted this year's Standard Distance National Championships - ensuring that whoever took home a medal had proven themselves against some of the toughest terrain in any race on the island.

More than 1,000 competitors lined out for Hell of the West, with the Cat1 males and females starting their non-drafting Super Series events first before the Age Group athletes got their race underway by heading in to the challenging swim in Kilkee Bay.
