PJ Logan Cycle Race, Coalisland
Ciaran and Eugene McGettigan made the trip to Coalisland Tyrone for the PJ Logan Cycle race. Ciaran raced well and despite suffering bad stomach cramps still finished strong. Eugene was competing in the A3 race and was going well but a crash occurred beside him and he unfortunately got caught up in the spill too. Thankfully he had no serious injuries so its back in the saddle for him and onto his next race in Drogheda this weekend.
Try a Tri and Super Sprint -23rd April
Preparations are well underway and entries are coming in fast for the 2017 Letterkenny Try a Tri and Super Sprint Triathlons which will take place on Sunday 23rd April at the Aura Leisure Centre. Always a popular event with new people and existing triathletes this event sells out quickly. Please note as this is a pool based triathlon entries are limited.
As the Aura Leisure centre has a moveable floor, the less experienced swimmers have nothing to fear as the floor will be risen on the day, with a water depth of only 1.25metres.
There will be 2races on the day, the Try a tri with a swim distance of 200meters (8 pool lengths) and the Super Sprint with a swim of 400 meters (16 pool lengths). Please note that the Try a tri is only open to first time competitors in triathlon.
Entries are now open on the Triathlon Ireland website. This is a pre-entry event only and no entries will be taken on the day.
