A big week for the club ahead and Club week is where the spring schedule kicks into full swing!!
It all starts next Monday where we ditch the road running and head back up to the track and from there it is fast and furious up until the grand finale of the 2017 North Tipp Sprint on Saturday!!
We will publish detailed information, course maps etc. the evening prior to the other events but below 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!!!!

Next up we have the return of the time trial series and this takes place from the Leisure Centre 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.

Saturday 15th 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 there should be plenty of local interest. The race kicks off at 9am so come down for a look if you are not marshalling!!!
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!!!!!
