Tralee Triathlon Club was again out in force with our members taking part in the Dingle Triathlon Olympic and Sprint distance races. Congratulations to everyone who participated. They were both tough events. Daniel Doyle took the honours placing second in the Sprint. Alison and Stephen Reidy put in a strong performance in each of their legs of the Olympic relay and  literally had no competition! Continue reading Dingle Triathlon

Intermediate/Advanced Training Launch

Exciting Times Ahead!

Impressive turnout for the launch of our training plan for the coming year for our club’s intermediate and advanced triathletes. It just shows how the club is going from strength to strength. There were quiet a few new faces in the audience and we hope to be welcoming a new influx of members soon.

Our Chairperson Annie has put in a huge effort and amount of time to pull all of this together and she deserves credit for doing such a great job. As we have come to expect from her the presentation and planning was professional and well organised.


The training plans are tailored for two specific groups, those that intend doing the Dublin Ironman 70.3 or another Half Ironman distance event and those whose target races are Sprint or Olympic distance events. Continue reading Intermediate/Advanced Training Launch
