Drumbo Hill (5th Sep 2017)

A disappointing turn-out with only four athletes beating the end of season blues and making the start line. The horrendous conditions of heavy rain and blustery conditions at Sunday’s Titanic triathlon may have also had an impact on the numbers.

It was good to see Ali is making good progress on her road to recovery. Good luck to Desi who is travelling to Rotterdam next week to take part in the Olympic distance World Championship’s.

TT Training 2017

What's it all about?

The TT league is a series of training events for triathletes from local Triathlon Ireland affiliated clubs. These are timed sessions, not races, and there are a number of different events that reflect a fun element. The organisers are all volunteers. In June there is a BBQ and in October there is a prize giving evening.

Entry Requirements
Participants must have a current Triathlon Ireland license (either associate or full membership) - no exceptions. Participants must be a member of a Triathlon Ireland club.

Riders must have a working red rear light on their bike and sign a disclaimer before each event.

How much does it cost?

There is no cost however there is a suggested donation, which can made at the start of the season, of £30 to cover running costs.

When and where are the events?

The calendar can be viewed at the bottom of this page. The TTs take place on Tue nights at either 18:45 PM or 19:00 PM sharp from various locations - please see links for maps on this page.

In the event of having to cancel an event a note will be put on this website between 5PM and 6PM on the day of the event. One reason for cancelling would be because of bad weather.

What is the League?

Time keeping and marshaling duties?
Marshaling and time keeping duties are shared each week between the competitors.
