Temple - league#12 (30th Aug 2016)

Dull weather conditions and some crosswinds featured in the last outing from Temple in 2016.

It was good to see the return of Mark Millar who has been recovering after a serious bike crash.

Mrs Sharkey continues her second half of the season dominance in the girls league. It will be interesting to see how the league results fall out of the spreadsheet when the magic formula is invoked. Mr. Sharkey of course can be very supportive from the comfort of 60 seconds (for the minute that is, which just happens to be 60 seconds!).

Fashioneer of the night goes to Carl King for matching those lycra reds so well with his bike. Who is he wearing!

"Time is inexorably ever moving onward; most important then is to consciously decide when to spend that time moving fast and when to pause for breath."
- Purnell (2016)

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.
