A big week for the club ahead and Club week is where the summer schedule kicks into full swing!!
It all starts tomorrow where instead of our usual run we will have a nutrition seminar taking place in the Fitness studio, Nenagh Leisure Centre at 7pm and from then on it is all go!!! We will publish detailed information, course maps etc. the evening prior to the other events but below again is a summary of what is on offer over the course of the week.
Such events are only a success if they are supported by the members of the club so with this in mind we hope that you can attend as many of the events as possible.
All events are also open to non-members and “try a tri” competitors so if you know of anyone who would like to try any of the sessions out then bring them along!!!!
Monday 11th April
Kicking off the week we have a seminar on nutrition and in particular Sport nutrition from nutritionist Sinead Delaney. This is intended to be the first of a number of such seminars and takes place in Nenagh Leisure Centre fitness studio at 7pm. Cost of entry is free.
Tuesday 12th April
Next up we have the first of the time trial series events and starts at Lisbunny industrial estate at 6.30pm. This will follow the North Tipp Sprint route and has 3 turn off options 10k / 20k / 36k so has something to offer all level of fitness. The 10k route is the one being used for the upcoming “Try a tri” event in June and so is open to all who wish to get a chance to practice the cycle leg. Cost of entry is free.
Wednesday 13th April
Wednesday sees the return of the Run-series. This will take place at 7pm from Nenagh College and will have the usual 5k route around the by-pass and also a 3k route and so is ideal for any “Tri a try” competitors. This run series will run for 6 weeks in total and all proceeds collected will be donated to local causes, so try to support this event if possible!!! Cost of entry is by donation with a suggested amount from €2 to €5.
Thursday 14th April
The usual cycling Summer league will take place on the old Limerick road with the usual groups. Ideal short but high intensity session for those undertaking the North Tipp sprint at the weekend. Cost of entry is €5.
Friday 15th April
The relative calm before the storm!! No official events are on the calendar but most of the day will be spent getting the course for the North Tipp sprint set-up. If you are free at some stage to help out with set-up and in particular in the evening to put together the transition area it would be greatly appreciated!!!!
Saturday 16th April
The first National Series Triathlon of the year and its in our back yard!!! Also incorporating the Intervarsity championships the North Tipp promises to be the hottest event of the weekend!!! Hosting over 250 triathletes from all over the country and with over 30 people from the Nenagh area taking part there should be plenty of local interest. The race kicks off at 9am so come down for a look if you are not marshalling!!!
Sunday 17th April
The week concludes with the Nenagh classic cycling race. With a large number of our own cyclists taking part on a home circuit this is an ideal chance to see the lads in action so if you are free the various races will be making their way through time at different time points so get down and support them on!!!!
We hope that there is something to offer all members and as with the majority of our events the cost is minimal and they are open to both members and non-members, with hopefully something on offer for all levels of fitness. So spread the word and we hope to see lots of ye attending the various events during the week!!!!!
