Killynure Kick Off

On this day:

- 1998 the Good Friday Agreement was signed

- 1935 Vaughan Williams 4th Symphony premiered in London

- 1967 A Man for All Seasons won best film Oscar

 - 2018...
There were seven men for this horrible spring season as the 2018 Lunchtime Legends Time Trial League got off to a damp and miserable start.

Vaughan led these merry men through wind... rain... and fog, home in a fantastic 20:40 given the conditions. Enda, Frank, Steve, Sean, Peter and Arthur all followed home shortly after in what can only be described as a "shocker" weather wise. (Other adjectives were available, we'll leave that to your imagination)

Special mention goes to Ita, the only lady to turn up - unfortunately she didn't quite make the starting line up on time, but did bravely ride the course anyway.

First volunteer points go to Desi and Gary - who will claim the end of season volunteer's prize?

The magnificent seven:

  • Vaughan Purnell     - 20:40
  • Enda Marron          - 23:20
  • Frank Sharkey        - 24:08
  • Steve Begley          - 24:15
  • Sean O'Hagan         - 25:37   
  • Peter McGuckin     - 27:31
  • Arthur McKenna    - 29:07
Well done to the new riders Sean and Arthur.

Earning volunteer points next week at the Ballynahinch TT are Enda, Desi and Frank. The meeting point is opposite Cyril Johnson's as normal. Please arrive early as the race WILL start at 18:45 sharp.


TT Training 2018

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.

Legal stuff
