Portaferry TT and Update

Ards TT
Well done to anyone who braved the weather for the Ards TT - I wimped out! Results should be posted at some point on the Ards CC website:
Ards CC Results

Maximum limit reached
We now have 50 unique names of people who have entered a Legends TT. It is good that people are enjoying the league but 50 is the maximum limit and hopefully not everyone will turn up on the same night. It would be appreciated if people do not invite anymore friends etc. along so the organisers do not have to turn people away.

Calendar change
The race calendar will be amended in the next few days as we are not allowed to participate in the Hill Climb Championship (23rd June) or the 25 mile TT Championship (13th August) as we are not members. These two events will be replaced with something similar at a different venue.

TT Training 2018

2018 News

The TT 2018 series is currently in a planning stage.

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?
The league is a series of 12 individual TTs with a competitor's best 6 results counting. There will be a separate league for the boys and girls.

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

Legal stuff
Competitors must show their Triathlon Ireland license, sign a waiver form and provide next-of-kin details before being allowed to join in. The TI membership covers public liability for any who are found to be negligent in their duty to other particapants and as such cause personal or property damage. TI also covers for members for 25,000 euro in the event of death or disability following an accidental injury.
