Club Notes

Today’s training: come running with us at 6:15pm in the CBS.

Club events this week:

  • Nenagh 5km run series – run 5: this is the final run of our 5km summer series. The run takes place on Wednesday at 7:00pm at the Vocational School.
  • Nenagh Summer League: continues on Thursday evening at 7:00pm.

Nenagh CC Seniors: there were a large number of club cyclists on the road on Saturday. As has been the case for a while now, there were two bunches on the road, with the normal cycle group hitting the hills and the Ironman focused training group getting in some much needed mileage on their tt bikes. It was all quiet this week on the racing front

Something to aim for: the End of Year Cycle  will take place in late August – either the 23rd or the 30th depending on which date people give out about less. We want all club members to target this event so start building up the miles in your legs – you have 4 or 5 weeks to get sorted. The distance we try to cover is 160km / 100 miles, but 60% of the people that take part will only do part of it – try and make it to the food stop if you can! This year’s route will be placed on the website nearer to the event date.

Nenagh CC Juniors: it was great to see such committment to training from our juniors on Saturday. Even though there was a late ‘training cancelled’ notice put on Facebook we still had a large crowd looking to cycle in the rain. If only our senior cyclists were as tough!!

  • Training this week: there is just a Thursday cycle this week at 2:00pm from the Five Alley. The older juniors should also look to join the senior cyclists for the Saturday cycle at 8:00am at the pool.

Weekend racing

  • Kilkenny Triathlon: 5 club members made the trip to Kilkenny for this sprint distance triathlon. Barry Creamer was first home for the club finishing in 28th position overall. Eoin O’Connor finished in 170th and John Ryan was 387th overall. Mary Donnellan finished in 115th in the women’s race and Sheila Gregan finished soon afterwards in 124th. Well done everyone!
  • Little Bo Peep Triathlon: 2 club members made the long trip down to Kenmare for this tough Olympic distance race. First home for the club was Derek Bowen who finished in 30th overall. Jerry O’Mahony also did well finishing in 65th. Excellent stuff!
