WILL YOU TRY A TRI’ IN 2017?
Following on from last summer’s hugely successful event, Nenagh Lions Club is pleased to announce “Try a Tri’ 2017” which will take place in the town on 10th June 2017. This mini taster-triathlon event is run with the assistance of Nenagh Triathlon Club. The Try a Tri’ is geared especially towards those who are completely new to triathlons, those with just a basic level of fitness, those who can run or cycle a little but may be fearful of swimming, and those who simply enjoy a challenge and are keen to participate in Nenagh’s hottest, fittest summer event!
The tri’ consists of 10 lengths of Nenagh Swimming Pool (at your own pace), followed by a 10km cycle and a 3km run or walk. This year the Lions Club is encouraging local clubs and businesses to participate and compete in teams of three. A separate competition for Nenagh’s fittest family will also take place. Single entrants (adults and under 18s) are also very welcome. The tri’ will be followed by a BBQ, music and entertainment long into the summer evening at Una Powell’s Summerhill.
To get the ball rolling on this year’s event you are invited to attend A Sportsman’s Dream, Kenyon Street, next Tuesday, 24th January 2016 at 5pm where Asics is running a promotion to showcase its latest designer trainers which will be available to purchase at a discount on the day. Shoe testing will also take place and there will be spot prizes throughout the evening. This Try a Tri’ pre-launch features a fun 3km run/jog/walk around the town which begins at A Sportsman’s Dream at 6.30pm. All, young and old, are welcome to attend and Asics trainers will be provided to those who wish to test them. Participants are advised to wear high-vis t-shirts or jackets and to bring a torch. Consider this to be the start of your own personal “operation transformation”! For more information see Try a Tri’ Nenagh and A Sportsman’s Dream Facebook pages.
Nenagh Lions Club is a completely voluntary not for profit organisation and 100% of all funds raised are used to support the local community throughout the year.
