Debating whether to enter, think its the same weekend as Ballycotton so all you runners need not reply!

races 10

Post by Kieran on Tue Mar 09, 2010 12:45 am

I'm being a total bore this year and will probably do few tri's before the UK race due to work commitments. It'll be the summer road race series for me, I think. Possibly the Waterford adventure race, that looks like fun. I'll probably take my annual trip to the Liffey Descent in September, if any of you fancy something a little exciting.... Check out www.canoe.ie and look at the video clips of previous races to get an idea of what it's like.

Keep me posted on the half ironman training day, I could do with that!

My God!! That was the most nerve racking 15mins ever!

The site kept crashing for the Kilkee entry. I got so muddled that I entered myself but with Shane's details and by the time I got to enter Shane it had almost filled. Got him entered by the skin of his teeth!

So the 2 of us are in. Who else got in??

There are 2 more chances to enter
Sunday 22nd March 8am (200 places)
Friday 30th April 8pm (100 places)

My hands are still shaking!

Oh and have we agreed a date for the training half ironman, 8th May?

Have to say that not planning much this year, keeping it local as much as possible so as not to interfere with the dreaded training, so not of much use sorry!!!

What I'm going to do is

Limerick (olympic fo those who are interested)
Valedntia
Tri Athy
Wicklow 200
Kilkee

and that other thing in Switzerland

Most races use Active Europe so make sure you know your password etc in advance.

Also, there are new rules with Triathlon Ireland this year. You cannot buy a one day licence on race day. It needs to be done online up to 3 days in advance.

1. Go to www.triathlonireland.com
2. Go to the 'competition' area
3. Select 'one day licences'
The deadlines to purchase one day licences are:-
* For races being held on a Sat, Sun or bank holiday: midnight the Thu before race
* For races being held on a weekday: midnight the day before the race
Note: It will not be possible to purchase one day licences after the above times or on the race day."

As you know, all club members are supposed to be members of TI anyway, but just in case you plan to race soon, you need to apply for your TI membership a few weeks in advance to guarantee having your card on race day. Otherwise the above rules will apply.
