Temple - league#8

With the weather being so temperamental today it would have put a lot of people off doing anything this evening. Ten hardy souls showed up however, ten people who know that in years to come they won’t remember the nights spent in front of the tv but they’ll remember the simple joy of racing their friends on the Temple lap. They’ll remember the dread as they get out of work on a Tuesday knowing what’s ahead of them, the deliberation over what’s best to eat beforehand, the mild panic that they’ll miss the sign on. Then they will recall that sometimes it was the best night of the week, that the outfit was more important than the fuel, and sure it never started on time anyway. The LLTT is as much about the people as it is about the time. To everyone who shows up each week and gives it their all - here’s to you!

And here’s your results…

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.
