Carryduff - league#8

It was a bright clear night and the sun split the skies…for those that were in the Italian Alps….
But for those in Carryduff, it was somewhat different…..
A spot of rain was interspersed with more rain. 
So it made for a stimulating evening, and particularly enjoyable for those who like a good soaking.

7 brave souls circumvented the Carryduff circuit and all got some form of seasons Best. (albeit not necessarily their time)

Peter Morrison                 28.01
Mark Hanna                       29.27
Conor Preshow                 31.59
Frank Sharkey                   34.08
Peter MCGuckian            35.21

Emma Kerr                          33.54
Geraldine Sharkey           35.21

Temple 2LAP (5th July 2016)

The scheduled Temple 2LAP was unfortunately cancelled due to a blunder with the time keeping.

However, crossing over to a parallel Universe (thanks to left behind portable Alien wormhole generating tech), an alternative TT did happen. In this similar reality there was no time keeping lapse (and brexit voted to stay in and NI played the ROI in the euro final but that's another blog).

The riders were remarkably similar to our Universe in ability although arguably less "whingy". One thing consistent in both Universes was the excuses at the end. In an ironic spin of quantum mechanics the alternate Enda also posted a THU!

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.
