Summer Series of Training Events, 2017

As a Triathlon Club, we want to give our members loads of Triathlon Race practice.  For the last number of years, the club has hosted a ‘Summer Training Tri Series’.  This is a series of 10 races for members of Tralee Triathlon Club.

This year, these races will take place on a mix of Tuesday evenings, Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings during the summer with the exception of the week before our Club Race, Tri Kingdom Come.

We will also host Middle (70.3) and Standard (Olympic) distance races to support club members in preparation for their race season – such as IM Austria, Challenge Roth, Dublin 70.3, The Lost Sheep, IM Barcelona, etc, etc.

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 schedule of our Summer Series is as follows:

  • Tuesday, May 16th, 18:45 hours – Duathlon
  • Thursday, June 1st, 18:45 hours – Aquathon
  • Sunday, June 11th, 07:00 hours – Middle (70.3) distance tri
  • Thursday, June 15th, 18:45 hours – Aqua-bike
  • Sunday, June 25th, 10:00 hours – Standard / Olympic distance tri
  • Tuesday, June 27th, 18:45 hours – Starter-sprint (try-a-tri) distance tri

  • Friday, July 14th, 18:45 hours – Slip-to-Shore Open-Water Swim

  • Tuesday, August 29th, 18:45 hours – Farewell-to-Summer Sprint and Starter-sprint (try-a-tri) distances

We know that race timing is important to you, so you can purchase your very own timing chip to use with the club timing system.
This chip is yours for life.
Only members that use one of these timing chips will be timed at club training events.
Contact committee members to get your chip.
