Can't come to the race?

We have a race for you, too: Luck of the Irish is going VIRTUAL!

A virtual triathlon (or RBR) is a race that can be completed at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can ride on a trainer or cycle outside. You can swim in a pool, a lake or the sea! You can run your race at your pace anywhere! This is a great way for the rookie athlete to build up confidence to show up for the real thing!

Virtual races are a great way to stay fit, motivated, have the sense of participating and get a great t-shirt and medal!

You can complete the required distance in each discipline during the week coming up to the actual race, in your pace, in your environment.

You can send us your stats at You can send the evidence of completing the race distances to but it is not required. You can send a screenshot from an app, your watch, your laptop or even a photo of your treadmill results for your runs. You can use MayMyRun / MapMyRide, Strava, Garmin or any other digital fitness app. Submitting evidence of your swim distance is harder, unless you have a swim compatible device so you will we believe you did it. At the end of the day, if you don't do it, you would only be lying to yourself and you would not be able to wear a cool t-shirt with a triathlon logo!

Every participant must show photo ID and proof either of USAT annual membership, or purchase of USAT one day pass. If one of these is not provided at packet pickup, the participant will be required to purchase a one day pass or an annual membership in order to pick up his or her packet, regardless of whether or not he or she already has a membership ($15 for adult one day, $50 for annual membership, and $10 for youth annual membership). Please click here for the Most Commonly Violated USAT rules.


All Relay team participants must check in at packet pickup individually and pick up their race number (though team members do not all have to come at the same time). All team members must have their own USAT membership (whether annual or one day).

All 2 or 3 members of a relay team will share one race number and one timing chip. Timing chip is to be handed off to the next member at the bike racked in the transition area. As the swimmer arrives at the bike, he or she will give the chip to the cyclist. As the cyclist completes the bike course and arrives at the bike, he or she will hand off the timing chip to the runner. Bicycle must be placed on the bike rack while chip exchanges take place.
