Temple - league#10 (15th August 2017)

It was very much the case of localised weather with sections of the Temple course bone dry and other sections slippery wet.

A small bunch met at the Temple roundabout car park with the exception of Mr McGuckin who didn't read the last email and turned up in Ballygowen. Right location, just a week early.

Mr S, locked and loaded, turned the tables on seasons nemesis Mrs S, with a hard earned 9 second victory. The relief from Mr S was most palpable to all at the finish line (by the white Temple sign).

Last but not least, Kiwi's skinsuit stitching seems to be trying to hold on until the end of the season, and he gets a some sympathy for having the Hilly 125 in the legs.

There's only 3 TTs left this season; when they are done they are done and "winter is coming"!

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.
