Mountain biking at Castlepook Wind Farm

Castlepook Wind Farm (a joint ESB Coillte project) was one of the sponsors of the 2017 Cross Country (XC) Marathon Championships which took place on Sunday 24th September last.

The event was organised by Team Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Club. The Ballyhoura Mountains are located on the Limerick /Cork border, here, the Coillte forest is also home to world class mountain biking facilities as part of our recreation offering. For this event the organisers created a 65km championship course through the forest, incorporating areas of the Castlepook Wind farm, using single tracks and fire roads.

The event was a huge success, with over 120 competitors drawing a large number of spectators on the day.

This year’s Cross Country (XM) Marathon Championship was sponsored by Castlepook Windfarm (a joint ESB Coillte venture), Brookfield Windfarm, SISK, and Cycling Ireland.
