As well as travelling far and wide in order to attend various TI events around the country the club have a number of events closer to home…..Lough Derg sprint, “Try a tri”, and the Dromineer series (more on this one in a later post!!). As anyone looking at the calendar is aware, race events are high in number so from a club perspective its really important for club development to help support our own events and to promote further participation in any of the triathlon disciplines.
Try a tri 2016
This may not be an official Triathlon club race, but this event is a really important one on the season calendar. This event being run in association with the Nenagh Lions club is the best way of promoting our sport to beginners and triathlon wanabees. The average standard within the club is at a pretty high level and as such this offers a platform for people to attempt a triathlon and in time work up to the bigger sprint and olympic distance events or even longer!!
We all started somewhere and from a club development perpsective we would ask all members to actively encourage others you know to attempt this beginner event.
The race is open to all ages and abilities and if the swim part is an issue a swimmer can be found to do that part!
Registration can be undertaken online at :
or if you fancy the old fashioned way then forms are available from Paul or down at the leisure centre. If you have any questions you can let Paul know.
- Also: if any club members are available on the day to support or help out with the organising and marshalling that would be great.
- The club run events throughout the year and seldomly ask members to help out with the various events and races, trying to allow as many take part as possible, but on this occasion we would be grateful for any assistance in making this event a great success!!!
Lough Derg Sprint
As you will be well aware registration for our own race in July is already open and our good friends at “Planet Tri” have generously offered a number of pre-race spot prizes for competitors. We thank the lads for their continued support to our events and races and in return would ask that wherever possible club members use the shop for their triathlon requirements.
A top of the range racing wet-suit (approx €450) will be drawn from the first 50 entries into the race; a top of the range set of cycling shoes (approx €200) for the first 100 entries and a top of the range tri-suit (€150) for the first 150 entries!
Race entries have started to snowball since this announcement so if you want to be in with a chance of being in the draws then register today!!!!
Dromineer Series 2016
