The Adventure Race gets its name from the mythical serpert, "Lua" banished from Gougane Barra by St. Finbarr. Lua stopped to rest between Ballingeary and Inchigeela creating depressions in the land that subsequently filled with water to create the lakes, "Locha Lua".

This is a community event, organised and operated by a group of volunteers.
