Carryduff - league#11 (23rd Aug 2016)

Dull conditions for league numero eleven, which started from Carryduff at a little after 18:45.
A red alert signifying an exciting display of the aurora borealis over the Carryduff circuit sadly turned out to be a false alarm. The reason for the false red alert was local interference; a grass cutter of all things affected the manetograph at Lancaster University!

Good efforts all round for the now battle hardened riders.

“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” 
- Arthur Conan Doyle (1896)

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?

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