TRI KINGDOM COME 2017
After the phenomenal success of our club event Tri Kingdom Come last year Tralee triathlon Club are delighted to announce August 5th as the date for the next Tri kingdom Come event.
We are also delighted to announce the Fenit RNLI Lifeboat station as our charity partners again this year and we look forward to working with them to raise more funds for this fantastic service that is run solely by our local brave volunteers. Last year we were thrilled to raise €2000 for this more than worthy cause.
The Sprint comprises of a 750 m swim, 20 km cycle and 5 km run, all taking place along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way. This is a nice flat course and perfect for athletes trying to better their times or beginners looking for an easy course for their first triathlon!
There is also a sprint relay option – a brilliant way to introduce new people to the world of Triathlon or do it as a workplace challenge -just form a team to compete.
The Try a Tri distance – the perfect option for beginners to the sport will be a 250 m swim, an 8 km cycle and a 2.5 km run.
Check out our footage shot last summer of the swim/bike and run routes:
Start time is estimated to be between 11.00 and 12.00. The swim will be tide assisted again this year ensuring that everyone achieves a great time. Last year we had very happy swimmers as PB’s were smashed by many!
We have always had closed roads for the duration of the event and we anticipate having closed roads again this year.
After the amazing competitor feedback from last years event we have invited Jules Hall-Weakley back again to provide entertainment on the day and for the after race BBQ that will be provided to all competitors and volunteers after the race.
We are also delighted to welcome back Stephen Kelleghan of TI Media to document the day with his amazing photographs. This year he will coordinate a team to do an even more amazing job than he did last year and cover more sections of the race.
We will also have a few additional entertainment surprises up our sleeves!
Watch our social media page for news of the after party — come in numbers and plan to stay the night!
Race briefings with all of the required details will be sent out to all registered competitors closer to the date.
Tralee Triathlon club and Fenit Development Association are looking forward to welcoming you to one of Ireland’s most scenic Triathlons next August bank holiday weekend.
Entries will be opening very soon in time for the Christmas present rush!
