As part of the Killary Adventure story which started in 1981, Gaelforce Events has been a very exciting development since 2006. In 2015 Gaelforce Events was re-branded as Killary Gaelforce.

What's it all about?

The race calendar of the adventure challenge side of the company has expanded every year since its inception. Killary Gaelforce as part of the Killary group now organises 9 major race events each year.

How does it work?

Everything from bookings, marketing, logistics, set-up, safety plans and operations is controlled and managed by Killary Adventure Co. As you can imagine there is quite a lot of planning involved and much attention is given to developing networks and good working relations with local landowners, businesses and members of the community. As Killary Adventure has been operating in Connemara since 1981, we have had ample opportunity to work on this.

When race day comes along the Killary Adventure team can be seen erecting marquees, manning their positions along the route and welcoming competitors home across the finish line!
