Test Tri 1 2017

Test Tri 1 of 2017 was a great success. We had 44 competing in the event on the morning which included around 20 from the people in sport program. Weather conditions were favourable for the early start. Sinead Lynch took control of the morning and got things underway in the pool on schedule. The people in sport completed the 400m swim in wave 1. Trilogy completed the 750m swim in wave 2. Everyone was out of the pool and on the bikes by 7:50.There was no wind to impede the cycle and light shower of rain out on the Heath didn’t dampen the bike leg effort in any way. The new bike racking system recently built and painted by many of the club members was put into use for the first time in a tri event. The run was quiet with traffic and busy with competitors. Everyone done and dusted before 9am! Great start to the Saturday morning and the 2017 triathlon season. Big thanks to the marshals on the day and all who competed. The all-important Laois Tri takes place on Saturday April 8th. Best of luck to all from the people in sport group competing. You will fly it! Our next test triathlon takes place on Saturday May 6th. Time to break out the wet suit!
