Carryduff - league#6 (27th July 2017)

For another adventure on the Carryduff- Ballygowan circuit.

Bit of wind, threatening to rain (but didn’t), clammy at the start….but didn’t notice it thereafter. Minds were elsewhere I suspect! Mark Millar was the top dog for the evening, closely followed by Messrs’ Morrison and Kane.

Mark Hanna demonstrated his superiority to the next group, many of whom allegedly “had to stop at the roadworks”

Aye the roadworks……. Geraldine even stopped for a break there and still did enough to show hubby who is boss. Although I said Mark was top dog, we’ll refine a male canine reference for the top lady too.! (the other alternative references don’t work too well :-)

Well done all.
Thanks to Carl for stepping into the breach / hot seat to make it all possible and timekeeping…Have a great hol…too.

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.

Legal stuff
