So what’s in store this June bank holiday for our club members ……….loads!!
Saturday: Triathlon – best of luck to all of our triathletes heading to Tri Athy, Co. Kildare this weekend. With a National Series Sprint along with an Olympic and Double Olympic there will be a triathlon to suit all. It is noted as one of Ireland’s fastest triathlon courses, a good one to achieve a PB. I believe a race report has already being promised by one of our ‘Saturday only’ triathletes.
Racing – senior men and women will be heading to either Mark Hayden Memorial Race, Carlow on Saturday or Deenside Cup, Kilkenny on Sunday. Best of luck to you all. A race report from either the men and/or women would be welcome, and of course photos also.
Saturday Cycle: club cycle will leave hotel at 9:00am. For those of you who wish to put in extra miles in preparation for Mizen to Malin, a smaller group will be leaving hotel at 7:30am for a short spin. Route will be Nenagh – Roscrea – Birr – Borrisokane – Nenagh. This cycle will be divided into interval groups along the route, we will have a wee briefing at hotel before heading out.
Junior Cycle: this will leave the CBS at 2:30pm Saturday.
Sunday Cycle: this will leave Tesco car park at 8:00am, and will take the usual route around the lake 112km. For those taking on Mizen to Malin you can extend cycle by continuing on into Limerick before heading back to Nenagh 155kms. This will benefit you no end for our upcoming three day M2M challenge and…
Bank Holiday Monday: ….. finish off the weekend by completing the 156km Monday cycle. This will be a new route for most. We will leave Tesco car park at the earlier time of 7:00am and head towards the ‘sunny’ south (hopefully avoiding the forecasted wind and rain). Route will be Nenagh – Dolla – Upperchurch – Ballycahill – Cashel – Johnstown – Templemore – Dunkerrin – Nenagh 154km. We will have an accurately timed 20 miuntes stop at Littleton.
Sunday Swim: there will be a swim from Youghal on Sunday evening 6:00pm.
