Well, we are a Triathlon Club, so we want to give our members loads of Triathlon Race practice.
For the last number of years, the club has hosted a ‘Mini Tri Series’. This is a series of 8 races for members of Tralee Triathlon Club.
These will take place this year on every second Tuesday evening during the summer with the exception of the week before our Club Race, Landers Sponsors Tri Kingdom Come. On that week, we will have an Olympic Distance Race on Sunday 24th of July, primarily to give everyone a rest in the week leading up to the race, but also to host an Olympic Distance race for those preparing for a Half Iron Distance Triathlon, such as Dublin 70.3 or Lost Sheep triathlons.
These races are training events and there is no charge. Club Members only. All members taking part are expected to take their turn to marshal/volunteer for one race in the series.
The dates for our Mini Tri Series are as follows:
Tuesday 17th May MINI TRI 1 Duathlon 7pm
Tuesday 31st May MINI TRI 2 Aquathon 7pm
Tuesday 14th June MINI TRI 3 Aquabike 7pm
Tuesday 28th June MINI TRI 4 Try-a-Tri Triathlon 7pm
Tuesday 12th July MINI TRI 5 Try-a-Tri & Sprint Triathlon 7pm

Tuesday 9th Aug MINI TRI 7 Try-a-Tri & Sprint Triathlon 6:30pm
Tuesday 23rd Aug MINI TRI 8 Try-a-Tri & Sprint Triathlon 6:30pm

A recent recce was carried out on the Trail course for our Tralee to Camp Run Event due to be held on the 19th March. Unfortunately I’m disappointed to report that large sections of the Trail have been eroded and washed away and other sections are water logged after the storms of winter.
