Race Format: The races are a mix of mass start or handicapped events, with the weaker triathletes going first and the stronger triathletes going last. The aim is to have everyone finishing at the same time.
Start Times: It takes time to get your gear ready and to put your wetsuit on. Make sure you always arrive 15 mins early to get things ready.
Refreshments: There will, as always, be tea, coffee and food after the race is over.
Non club members: Are welcome to take part as long as they have a full Triathlon Ireland licence. All our own club members should have TI insurance.
Course Maps & Description
750m Lake Swim – Wetsuit and bright swim cap needed. You swim out to the bouy and back. For weaker swimmers the option of swimming pier to pier is available. For non swimmers the option of an additional run is available.
Swim to Bike Transition
You leave all your gear by the fence beside the car park. Your tri gear is worn under the wetsuit, so once you get your wetsuit off and your helmet on you are ready to go.
You need a trisuit or tri top and shorts for this. You wear these under the wetsuit. A helmet is also needed. The triathlon bike route is the same as the duathlon route. It is an out and back course. You head in towards town and take a left at the first roundabout heading towards the Borrisokane road roundabout. This is the turn around point and you head back towards Dromineer from here along the same road you came out. The bike route is flat but the road surface is poor in places.
Bike to Run Transition
Rack your bike where you set-up then take off your helmet, put on your runners & get running
The 5km run route is on out and back route. It is quite hilly so make sure to pace yourself. The 2km run in the duathlon goes to the 1km mark on the map and back.
