Autumn Training – Week 1

The start of July and it means we are into the last block of training prior to the end of season events! We still have the club trip to Galway to come and after that we will see a change in emphasis in the sessions in preparation for those doing the Dublin City marathon later in the year and also some preparation for the end of year swim. On the racing scene this weekend was “Hell of the West” and TriAthlone and the club had a number of members in attendance on the day so well done to all who took part!!

Dromineer Series

The Dromineer series continues this Wednesday and this week is the final triathlon prior to the Galway trip.
As preparation for the Olympic distance in Galway we are going to do an increased distance event this coming Wednesday for anyone interested. We will be going a 1k – 32k – 8.5k triathlon and we will be starting with a staggered swim at 6:30pm in Dromineer.

For those looking to do the normal sprint distance, this will get underway at the usual 7pm!!!!

Sheila Gregan’s 20km cycling event took place on the circuit between Cagliari and Quartu. Sheila won her Gold medal today in the cycling event in her 40-49 year age category said, “I am thrilled with the result. I was third overall in the race and Gold in my age category. It’s Day Three and I’ve finished all my events. It’s been a perfect three days for me. I’m finishing on a high. I do this because I can and that’s all thanks to my donor”.

The Irish team of 10 women and 13 men ranging in age from 31 to 80 and includes 20 athletes who underwent kidney, pancreas or liver transplants as well 3 dialysis patients. The team are competing amongst competitors from 25 nations which for the first time in the Championships history will include Russia and Kazakhstan.

Summer Training – Week 10

One big week for the club down and one to go!!! Last weekend saw the successful staging of the third “Try a tri” and this is followed on Saturday with the latest in our Lough Derg sprint events!

 

Lough Derg Sprint 2018

This coming Saturday on June 16th we have the latest offer of our own Lough Derg sprint / try a tri, out in Dromineer. As ever we encourage members to take part if they are able but as ever we need people to help volunteer with the marshalling side of things on the day.

This event helps highlight the sport at a local level and also to help fund club activities over the coming season and so are important for club development.

We are looking for people who are free to help out, so if you are free to help out next Saturday for a couple of hours in the morning then that would be really appreciated. You can let us know on the Viber group.

We will post a marshal list later in the week on this!

Summer Training – Week 9

A big week of training and racing and for once the weather played ball! The Dromineer series got off to a bang on Wednesday and this week racing was in Athy and Kilrush so well done to all club members who attended these events!

 

** Upcoming club events **

It is a big couple of weeks for the club as it is every June.

Firstly, this coming Saturday June 9th we have the third running of the Lions club/Nenagh TC try a tri and try a sprint. This local event will see over a 100 people take part in a various triathlon events and give an introduction to the world of triathlon.

Next up on June 16th we have the latest offer of our own Lough Derg sprint / try a tri, out in Dromineer.

These events are designed to highlight the sport at a local level and also to help fund club activities over the coming season and so are important for club development.

We are looking for people who are free either of these weekends to help out. The lions club are helping with the marshaling on June 9th but we need support from the club to help with the more technical areas such as the pool, transition area, and main Dublin road crossing and finish. 

So if you are free to help out next Saturday for a couple of hours in the morning then that would be really appreciated. You can let us know on the Viber group.

For the Lough derg we will be putting together a marshal list together later in the week!

This will be the last time that Paul will be bugging anyone to help with an event so rest assured after this ye will be free 🙂 !!!!
