Triathlon Update

Hot off the press!!!!

It has been a while since there had been an update so we have a few things to mention so sit down relax and take a look at some of the club offerings that are coming up over the coming weeks and months!!!!!

Club Weekend I

The club will be running the first of our club weekends from February 24-26th and we have a number of sessions on offer to all club members from the triathletes, to the cyclists and the swimmers and Masters swimmers. The final program is to be fully finalised but a present we are looking to organise a number of sessions on Friday and Saturday, including the Masters gala in Ennis and then concluding with the first Winter duathlon on Sunday morning. We will get back during the week with the official programme but at the moment it is looking like:

  • Friday 24th 7-9pm: Core stability / Nutrition session: (Leisure centre)
  • Saturday 25th 9-1pm: Swimming – Stroke analysis: (Leisure centre)
  • Saturday 25th 5pm: Swimming – Ennis Masters
  • Saturday 25th: Junior Duathlon Athy
  • Sunday 26th 12pm: Winter Duathlon 1: (Leisure centre)

Club Summer Triathlon Weekend 2017

This year with the reduced entry to Kilkee the club have decided to branch a little bit further afield for the annual club triathlon event.

This year we will be hoping to take the club to Sligo on Saturday July 8th for the Hazelwood Olympic distance triathlon.

If we can get over 10 members taking part we can avail of a club discounted rate and the club will cover a substantial portion of the accommodation cost and hire of transport.

However, registration for this race has been open a number of weeks and is filling up fast so we need to act pretty quick, so if anyone is interested can they let a committee member know or send a text to us on the Viber group and we can get a look at numbers.

We will need to have an idea by next Wednesday (22nd February) if we have enough to make a plan so if you can make this club weekend then let us know and we will arrange the rest!!!!

 

North Tipp sprint 2017

Our own National series race the North Tipp Sprint takes place on Saturday April 15th and at this stage is almost full!!!  As ever we actively encourage members to take part in this event but ask that if you plan on entering that you can get someone to help marshal the event in your place……but if you wish to get into this years event then get moving fast before it sells out!!!!

More details on this race can be found on the North Tipp sprint tab on the website or by clicking on the link below:

North Tipp Sprint 2017

“Try a tri” 2017

The annual Lions club / Nenagh Triathlon club  “try a tri” date has been set for Saturday June 10th and is now open for entries!

Over the coming weeks the club will be working with the Lions club committee to put together a beginners training programme as preparation for the event and will publish this online and in the Nenagh Guardian.

As ever…..if you know of anyone who is looking for a new challenge in 2017 then why not invite them to any of the club sessions and target this event in early Summer!!!

The club hope to use this event as a Springboard for further membership and progression to Sprint and then Olympic distances events so the more people we can get taking part in this event the merrier!!!!

Yearly Calendar

The club committee have put together the Year calendar and have selected a number of races during the season that we hope to target…..the races are given in the list below. If you are racing during the Summer season then please try and choose the races listed and in this way we can hope to have a group of club members attending events together….there is always more craic in a crowd!!!!!
