Harbour Estate - 31st July

New faces, returning faces, 11 racers, 10 finishers... this time trial had a little bit of everything.

A huge welcome to new legends, Adam and Christine who both performed well on their first outing. A shout out also goes to Ramesh who is surely talking himself into a cycling return having turned up to help with the timekeeping!

Hanna and McGandy were the fastest two on the night, with Pollock completing the podium. McCormick did superbly on his first run finishing with an impressive 37:07 and Clarke, our other new legend proving that she's not here to make up the numbers with a time of 43:19.

Unfortunately, not everyone rode the course as it was meant to be ridden. Purnell gets the years first DNL - Did Not Listen.. imagine the surprise of McGandy and others, seeing Purnell coming down the Heron Road the wrong way.. its a pity as Purenll's time would surely have been in the mix on the podium.

Pan Hanna - 31:18
Pan McGandy - 31:56
Pan Pollock - 34:11
Pani Kerr - 35:52
Pani Broughton - 36:30
Pan McCormick - 37:07
Pan McGuckin -37:23
Pan Gormley - 37:25
Pani Clarke - 43:19
Pani Stewart - 46:44
Pan Purnell - DNL (27:36)

Gary kept time, supported by Bogdan and Ramesh - Looking forward to seeing you next week Ramesh! Ballygowan to Killinchy is next week, marshalled by Emma and Mark H.

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.

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.

Time keeping and marshaling duties?
Marshaling and time keeping duties are shared each week between the competitors.
