Hardman Events was founded in 2011 by Alan Ryan to fulfil a longheld ambition of his to hold a long distance triathlon in his native Co. Kerry.

With the Lakes of Killarney, the Ring of Kerry and the Killarney National Park as it's backdrop along with the race ethos of keeping it real this race has now gained legendary status amongst the pure triathlon community. This race truly embodies the spirit of triathlon.

Alongside this has grown a range of races over different distances, both running races and triathlons, which all subscribe to this ethos and all take place in stunning, iconic locations.

Alan strongly believes that even if you have a bad race you should at least have a great day out and this is evident in the reviews which all the races receive.
