This event is for club members only. Invitations have been sent to club members email address. Check your inbox!

Our first outdoor training event of the season in on this Monday at 9:45 AM starting from Fenit Community Center. It’s a 5K run, a 20K cycle and a 5K run.

This is not a race but an opportunity to train in a race like situation. Participants must be cautious as roads are not closed and be aware of other runners/cyclist in the area as well as traffic.

Rules of the road must be obeyed at all times.

For beginners, don’t feel pressured into completing the full race – just do as much as you can.

For anyone intending to take part in our summer-tri series, or the Landers Tralee Triathlon in August this is a great practice event as it is run on a similar route to those events.

There will be tea, coffee and refreshments afterwards for those in a fit state to consume them.

Again, this is a training event, not a race (though some “friendly” one-upmanship is not discouraged) so you’ll need to track your own times. Above all it’s about getting out there, challenging yourself and having fun.

These events are always good craic and a great way to experience the buzz of triathlon in a friendly atmosphere.

So sign up and practice your racing skills, meet your club mates and sharpen your Jedi mind tricks!

Run Technique Workshop

Run with Maria

Run Workshop at An Riocht“Good day for ducks!” as they say. It was a cold and wet morning at An Ríocht but that didn’t stop our brave souls from coming out to do the second running technique workshop of the year with our club  running coach Maria O’Keeffe McCarthy. Maria is only fresh off winning the National Masters Indoor Track and Field Championships Women’s 3000m event. She must be doing something right :)

Drills

After a few laps of the facilities to warm up we took to the track where Maria started with some mobility exercises followed by drills with the mini hurdles. By time we were finished the blood was flowing and the breathing a little bit laboured. Then it was onto some drills to encourage proper form and motion.
