Carryduff - Ballgowan League Race 1 (29th March 2011)

Desi's Monday night pool side talk must have made an impact as there were an impressive number of people at sign-on before 6:15pm. This really helps so thank you to those people.

A cold and misty night did not deter a record turnout - almost 50 including the time keepers. There is a cap of around 50 people so these Tue night training events are essentially full (first-come-first-served).

A few points that people may not be aware of:
1) Shout your number loud and clearly when you cross the line; no-one is breaking the sound barrier so you will not lose any time.
2) Everyone shares the time keeping. Over the season you should only have to time keep twice. Don't be shy volunteering.
3) If it's ever a misty night again please use a rear light.

The first week is always a bit business like and we'll get to critiquing the clothes and bikes next week.

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?
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.
