The Inishowen 100 takes place on Sunday 19th August, promoted by Foyle CC. Pre-entry for this event has closed!
This one hundred mile provides a very rewarding cycling experience through some of the most beautiful landscapes and coastal views in Ireland. But be warned, this is a challenging event and should only be attempted by cyclists who have trained for this type of distance and terrain.
An easier 100 km / 60-mile event is also available at the same start and finish locations.
The entry fee for both events is £25/€30 and includes lunch, T-shirt, shower facilities, free car parking and certificates for all finishers who registered by 31st July 2018.
After this date, the entrance fee is increased to £30/€35
We cannot guarantee a t-shirt & Certificate for entries after Sunday 5th August. We will have a limited number of extra on the day and will do our best to accommodate everyone either on the day on the following week.
Cycling Ireland has advised that their Leisure Event insurance is required by riders not holding a current Cycling Ireland, NICF or CTC license. This insurance can be purchased when signing in for the event at the Templemore Sports Complex.

KCC are proud to announce the fifth year of their Leisure Cycle event, consisting of three distances (150K, 80K and 25K) to suit all fitness levels and abilities. The event is on the 19th August 2018 and the routes take in some of the most scenic areas of the County Down countryside.
Proceeds from the Entry Fee will go to our nominated charities for the event, which are the NI Hospice and Kodi’s Krew.
Northern Ireland Hospice is a local charity, offering specialist respite, symptom management, and end of life palliative care to over 3,500 infants, children and adults each year across Northern Ireland.
Kodi’s Krew was set up to help raise funds to treat brave 10 year old Killinchy girl Kodi Brown, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. With treatment not available through the NHS, her parents have reserached a clinic in Germany, where pioneering immunotherapy is offered, alongside infusion treatments to strengthen the immune system in conjunction with conventional brain tumour treatments.
The event starts and finishes at Killinchy Community Hall and will be fully supported with a team of Marshalls, motorcycle outriders, and medical backup. Routes are available on the club website: www.killinchycc.co.uk
