Tri-Lakes Knockma Duathlon Cancelled

What a wonderful year!

It has been a fantastic 2019 for Tri Lakes Triathlon Club with some super performances from our Club Mates.

But it all starts with the basics!

At the start of the year we held our 5km run series which was a huge success with many members chasing the early times, following that we had our Swim blocks coached by Mer Lulling, our level 2 coach.

Running blocks were soon followed by our handicapped 5km series in various venues around our catchment area of North Galway, a championship that was not only great fun and seriously competitive but also gave members a chance to visit new locations and head to friends’ houses for tea and cake afterwards.

The TT series was popular as always, perhaps also attracting members for the tea and chat! again travelling from venue to venue where the competition was tight, and fun was in plentiful supply.

From there swimming headed to the Lake where we donned the wetsuits and ventured out, with some member training for marathon swimming and others for sprints training was both widespread and at many different levels.

Next up was our very own duathlon which will be going ahead in 2020! A fine race ran by our race director Ger Henehan and once again the event was a massive success over the challenging course.

Training continued with our weekly cycling Sunday training, weekly running group and Swimming supported as always by our Masters Club, Tuam Masters and the season was in full flow.

Our very own Triathlon took place in Clonbur ran by our race director Neil Campbell who ran a brilliant race with all competitors giving fantastic feedback with compliment all round to our wonderful clubmates who stepped up and volunteered for the day.

With such a successful year it is now time for the long taper and enjoy the Christmas, so get the thinking caps on and start nominating for our awards night here.

Who are we

Tri-Lakes triathlon Club was formed in 2009 when a group of like-minded enthusiasts were preparing for a season of long-distance swimming and then a few bikes were bought and it all started from there.

With a little experience, a lot of sore bums, a few mistakes and a lot of heart, gradually the club grew from strength to strength with a committed committee driving the club forward and with more members gained more experience and less sore bums and fewer mistakes!

Today the Club has more than 100 members ranging from pensioners to pre-schoolers! and has vast experience from 4 world championship Ironman qualifiers to long-distance swimmers to ultramarathon runners to people who don’t know their gears from their goggles.

IT was with great surprise and great honour that Tri-Lakes triathlon club won triathlon club of the year 2018. A large contingent travelled to Dublin on Saturday 17th to the Gibson Hotel for the Triathlon Ireland presentation night.

We are extremely proud to have received this award for the Club, it is a testament to amazing and inspirational members that we have within our Club both today and in the past.

We would like to thank everybody that has contributed in any way to the club in 2018 and even more over the past 10 years that helped the club grow from strength to strength.

We would like to thank the founders and all the previous committees that have worked tirelessly to make the club it is today. The club has been built on the shoulders of giants!
